BEHIND THE LENSE
WHO IS SEAKRUU?
I moved to Cape Town from a small town in Limpopo when I was nineteen.
I had no plan, but I had a dream, and I knew that Cape Town would be the perfect place to start the process. I've always had a burning desire to touch people’s lives and bring them together through the art of visual storytelling, which brought forth the birth of SEAKRUU.
Coming into the industry as someone with no experience, education in the field, or knowledge about where to even start, I could've never imagined that I'd end up where I am today.
After three years of working as a full-time photographer, I was able to turn something that was just a dream, into a career that became my life.
I've since worked with dozens of different clothing brands, fashion designers, and some of the biggest music festivals in South Africa! But, most importantly, I learnt the true value of working hard for what you want, and hustling your heart out to create the life you deserve - two things that will guide me throughout all the next chapters of my life.
As my love for capturing real moments continues to grow, I look forward to each new day where I can pursue my passion on this self-taught journey.
"Working with Shanay(Seakruu) has been amazing!
You simply don't find many people who go above and beyond to both understand and execute your vision.
I have worked with Shanay for all of my brand's product, lifestyle and event shoots.
She continues to impress me with her ability to capture the vision.
I have loved working with her and feel super lucky that I’ve found such an incredible photographer and person to work with."
