Oyama Maz Mahlamvu

My name is Oyama Maz Mahlamvu I was born in Lusikisiki, Eastern Cape and now I call Durban home. I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer who absolutely loves his job and everything that comes with it. I appreciate the people I meet, places I go and the spontaneity in every shoot.   I appreciate the raw reality of every day life, the fleeting beauty of those in between moments, and I do my best to take every photo with that in mind. I want my viewers to relate to my photographs through recognition and familiarity with the situations, emotions and the energy so much that they wonder if they are looking at a photo of someone they know.
