A picture is worth a thousand words, but for Ndou Tsireledzo taking pictures is an everyday job.

The 24-year-old from Tshifudi said he always had a passion for photography. "Photography is something I have always loved and making it my everyday job is a dream come true. Photography is more than a hobby of shooting things and people for me. It is a channel or a medium that I use to express myself. I find it hard to express myself in words, so photography is a means to express my feelings," he added.

He started photography in 2015 at the University of North West. "I was a journalist for the university magazine, called Faculty Link. I was the main writer and photographer for the magazine," he said.

When he started photography, he used a Nikon D3200 to capture beautiful moments. "In order to take a good picture," he said, "you need to have at least four things: good light, great composition, an idea and a willing subject."

He added that he loved photography and that it gave him access to see the world from a different perspective, the ability to tell a unique story through the lens, and the ability to create art and to meet different people.

In 2017, he started his photography company called Sucre Media. "I started this company because of my love for photography and since then photography has become my livelihood. I depend on the art I create, memories I capture and the stories I tell to make a living," he said.

His company specializes in photography for weddings, parties, music concerts, fashion shows and corporate events.

Tsireledzo holds a BA Communication degree from North West University.
