After spending 17 years in the corporate world working for SAGE VIP Payroll, Wianelle chose to follow her true life passion – Photography. She completed her BTech Photography degree at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) in 2012 — cum laude.
Wianelle has always had a keen interest in architecture and decided to do her fourth year specialist study on Architectural Photography. She focused on award-winning South African architecture with cultural, political and aesthetic significance. Her study explored the essence of architectural concept at three award winning sites - Freedom Park in Pretoria, Red Location Cultural Precinct in Port Elizabeth, and the Ubuntu Community Centre in Zwide – Port Elizabeth. Wianelle’s book “Spirit of Place” , is the final result of her specialist study at NMMU. The book can be viewed online under “Publications”.
