Cath is currently completing her MSc in Genetics at the university of Pretoria. Over the years, she has developed a love for many things ranging from outdoors and nature, to design and photography.

Henry is a Pretoria born and bred autodidact. He completed his matric year at Cornwall Hill College, Irene, in 2010 and went on to study Industrial Engineering at the University of Pretoria. He is currently pursuing photography full time. Henry has always been an outgoing, adventurous, people person and used the medium of photography to document many of these encounters. Of late, this passion for photography and people has turned into a love for portrait photography and it is this love that saw him in need of creating a project around it.
