Zoom in on the creative mind of Jacques Naude’ (aka Jack Blu). I grew up as your average Afrikaans boy just cruising through primary school and high school, not really knowing what my passion or direction in life would be.

Around this time (2009) is when mobile phones started becoming more advanced and I had some of my first experiences with taking pictures (although they were badly pixelated).



Fast-forward two years, I finished my diploma in tourism and started working for a tour operator. The job allowed me to develop my people skills and my love of making others happy. One day an opportunity arose. I bought my first camera and decided to do a course in photography. It felt natural.
