Professional Photographer, JOHANNESBURG-based entrepreneur Chesty Wolfaardt is the backbone behind Double Vision Photography. He opened the Kodak Express Shop at the Douglasdale Shopping Centre in 2010 and the adjacent Double Vision Studio was launched a while later.
Chesty cut his teeth in insurance, packaging and printing and is an enthusiastic racehorse owner. He’s a true people’s person on top of that, a family man who conducts his business with honesty and integrity.
With his love for people and places, over the years Chesty developed a keen photographic eye which has become an expert’s eye and he tells: “When I started exploring with cameras there was no computer software like photoshop (or computers for that matter) to make your pics look good. I learnt the old school way by experimenting with light and various pieces of equipment but it brought invaluable lessons and skills which I employ today.”
