Chashish Photography was started as a passionate hobby in 2011. My focus was photographing bands and artists - Capturing people expressing and loosing themselves in the music was fascinating.
Within a few years, I had photographed major South African bands including; Bastille, The Parlotones, Prime Circle, Jesse Clegg, Watershed and many more. Each photo-shoot was exhilarating.
By 2015 I had gotten numerous enquiries for family photo-shoots, I finally took the plunge and have loved every second. Family photo-shoots evolved into maternity shoots, newborn shoots, milestone shoots and more. I love interacting with different families and portraying their uniqueness.
When the pandemic hit in 2020 and the country was put into strict lockdown, I found I had time on my hands and developed my brand even further; I started designing again, something I hadn’t done in years, but something so close to my heart. I also somehow became a children’s author and illustrator-something I never imagined I would become. And thus By Chashish was born. So welcome to my website! Here; we photograph love, we capture stories, we represent new beginnings, we encourage children, we inspire creativity and we make things pretty...all By Chashish.
