She works and lives in Cape Town, South Africa, often traveling locally and abroad to interesting locations either for photographic work or photographic play. A perfectionist and opportunist for just the perfect light, Angie captures emotion, simplicity and depth intertwined. Having shot fashion, travel, food, documentary, decor, music and everything in-between she seeks out subjects that allow her to capture the unspoken nuances with imaginative interpretations. Lighting, colour, texture, expression and shape mould her images. Lured into the glamour of fashion early in her career, she quickly found her way into the world of flickering illusion. A master at interpreting a brief, she produces images that are real and tangible but ignite the imagination.
Her camera, as an extension of her vision, pushes the boundaries of the digital medium and subject matter. Sometimes refreshing, other times fascinating but always turning what would seem mundane into its own unique expression.
She holds a National Diploma in Fashion Design from Pretoria Technikon, a Bachelor of Journalism and was awarded a Masters degree in Photojournalism, with distinction, from Rhodes University, in Grahamstown, South Africa.
She has worked as a full-time and as a freelance photographer for a variety of clients both locally and internationally. She was the senior photographer at Top Billing Magazine, a lifestyle glossy publication linked to a weekly television lifestyle show by the same name, for over five years.
“Photography for me is a moment; a creation; an expression for a lifetime.” – Angie Lázaro
