Shane Doyle completed his university studies in the natural sciences and then worked
at Mala Mala game reserve, where he spent five years capturing images that slowly
cultivated his own expression of photography. He has travelled extensively since
then - firstly to Dubai (where he spent 2 years flying falcons and capturing the
essence of desert life on film and experiencing a lifestyle quite different to South
Africa), Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Mozambique, Lesotho, Swaziland, the west coast
of the U.S.A, the Canadian Rockies as well as to Slovakia and Malaysia.
Upon his return to South Africa after Dubai, Shane spent time developing and marketing
his own range of inspirational postcards throughout South Africa, Namibia and Swaziland.
These are available at various outlets around the country.
He has also been applying his imagery to canvas, marketing this product through
select game lodges as well as doing commissioned work. Mashatu private game reserve
has recently upgraded their accommodation and has furnished their walls exclusively
with Shane's imagery - the theme being local culture and wildlife. The medium has
been a limited edition of signed black and white prints.
Shane's love for the outdoors has also led him into polo photography. He has assisted
BMW South Africa in documenting their International Polo Series for the last four
years. This has resulted in various commissioned projects including the decor of
an exclusive polo clubhouse as well as an upmarket restaurant in the Natal Drakensberg
area with large canvas images of wildlife, zulu portraits and polo imagery.
Weddings are another offering that Shane has in his quiver. His angle on weddings
is unique. Firstly, he will see and take the photographs of those special moments
that need to be captured on such an occasion. And secondly, his ability to able
to maximise the energy that he puts into each wedding. This is due to the fact that
he does not commit to more than 2 weddings per month. So book well in advance.
Shane's travels have followed his heart and his photography merely serves as an
outlet for his expression. To visualise is merely an attitude toward photography,
hence Shane's work is a total freedom of expression and is no way restricted by
others ideas of the art.
We trust you will enjoy your cyber travels through Shane's art, appreciating it
for its simplicity and variations. Please don't hesitate to contact him for any
information regarding commissioned works or any of the works in the product category.
