JOHAN BRITS

Biography

It appears photography has always been part of who I am. At first, I tried to paint, but I quickly realised that I was no painter. However, the urge to create kept burning inside me and I found that with photography, I could satisfy this urge.

I bought my first digital camera in 2005 and in 2006 joined Vanderbijlpark Photographic Society as well as PSSA (Photographic Society of South Africa).

In 2007 I joined the committee of the Vanderbijlpark Photographic Society as the PRO, a position I still hold.  For a few years I also assisted the PSSA PRO and Financial Director in identifying sponsors and negotiating with them to obtain sponsorships for both the IMAGE (PSSA magazine) and PSSA annual congresses.

In 2011 I achieved my APSSA honours (digital open) and in 2015 my FPSSA (fellowship).

I am an active judge at my local club as well as at clubs in the surrounding areas. I also judge National and International salons on a regular basis. I am part of a team that hosts an annual course for beginner photographers with the aim to motivate the students to join PSSA and a photographic club in their region.

I believe that photography is an art and I continuously try to build my knowledge in all the different genres of photography by attending courses, visiting art museums and reading articles on the internet.

I am a judge on PSSA honours judging panel that happens twice a year.

I am on the board of PSSA and have held the position of Regional Director for South Gauteng from 2017.
