Guy set out as a press photographer in the mid 80s, covering South Africa’s transition to a fully democratic society.
A chance meeting with fellow photographer Shahn Rowe exposed him to the possibilities of commercial photography. Guy swopped riots, tear gas and rubber bullets for the more relaxed atmosphere of a photographic studio with its coffee on tap and piped music.
A move to Cape Town in ’91 had Guy open his own studio where he worked for a number of years before handing it back to the landlord: the open road and the challenge of location work beckoned.
Guy has won numerous awards at various international advertising festivals that include D&AD and Cannes Lions. His work has also been selected for the Lurzers Archive Special, ‘200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide’.
