From as far back as he can remember, Ed Blignaut has been captivated by photography and moving images. Born and raised in Johannesburg, he began taking photographs while in the Seychelles as a yacht skipper. Upon his return to South Africa Ed enrolled in a photography course and began assisting professional photographers such as Steve Carralis, David Prior, Mark Lanning, Lampost’s Ross Garrett and Warren van Rensburg, and Lustre’s Sacha Waldman. Through this Ed has gained exposure to a wide range of styles and approaches and has begun honing his own visual aesthetic. In 2015 Ed started exploring film and is deeply committed to developing his career as a video and stills photographer.
