ABOUT JENNY

Jenny Powis Portrait

Meet Jenny

My passion for photography was sparked in 1980 when I was given my first SLR camera as a graduation present. Over the years I have developed my skill in photography, first with film and now with digital.

Over the last 30 years I have won awards for my photographs and in 2002 I became an Associate of the Photographic Society of South Africa (APSSA). I had to submit 18 colour prints to the Photographic Society of South Africa and these were judged nationally and then I was awarded my Honours in Photography. In 2013 I was awarded the life-time achievement medal by the Cape Town Photographic Society.

I hope you enjoy looking through my website and that my images speak to you as much as they do to me.

The Photography

My favourite genres are landscapes, seascapes and macro. My style has changed over the years, from pretty chocolate box photography to fine art photography.

I make images that capture my emotions and feelings rather than an accurate depiction of details in the viewfinder. I use a style known as Impressionism. This style in painting originated in France in the 1860’s. I use long exposures as a means to express a mood of serenity and tranquillity where there is so much chaos around us. I try to isolate something from the world around me to create a restful, peaceful scene.

I look to the sea and natural areas like forests where I find peace for my soul, a calmness of spirit expressed in my fine art Photography.
