My name is Storm Balchin. I am currently a student at the University of Cape Town. I am majoring in Organisational Psychology and Film and Media studies.
Before university, I attended SACS Junior and SACS High school. I was an accomplished sportsman with great emphasis on rugby. Rugby is a huge passion of mine and through this wonderful sport, I learned how hard work and dedication can help me achieve my goals and dreams. Playing 1st team rugby and representing Western Province I understood the competitiveness within the sport which had a major impact on me. It taught me to strive to be the best in whatever I put my mind to. I am currently injured and unable to play for the UCT Ikeys rugby team.
This setback was actually a blessing in disguise. With more time on my hands, I got to focus on my many other interests, namely, photography. I am a major film buff and love the concepts of cinematography, editing and mise en scene. This along with my creative nature helped me develop the skills needed to capture beautiful and memorable moments on camera. I have assisted Jessica at weddings, portrait shoots and commercial shoots. This has helped widen my knowledge and broaden my interest in photography.
Well, that’s me! Hope this little bio gave a bit of an insight to who I am and where I am from. I love capturing special moments through the camera lenz.
