Kim likes a creative challenge. This has led him on a journey from fashion photographer to director. This drive and creatively inquisitive nature afford Kim a solid balance between compelling narrative and commanding imagery without sacrificing either.
It’s his attention to detail and concept that has led to him consistently being featured at award shows around the world, winning Gold at Cannes, the Clios, One Show, the Loeries and many others – he’s been featured in both Ad Age Global and Shots’ Top 100 Directors and the Gunn report.
His spot ‘Selinah’ for Topsy was South Africa’s first Grand LIA at the London International Advertising Awards, as well as numerous other international awards, making Topsy the most awarded commercial to come out of South Africa in 2010.
Kim has developed a strong local and international clientele and has shot projects for several agencies around the world including Arnold, Crispin Porter Bogusky, TBWA Chiat Day, Pereira O’Dell, Saatchi’s, Fallon and Ogilvy Mather.
