Johan Opperman initially studied Electronic Engineering at the then Vaal Triangle Technicon in Vanderbijlpark. He eventually ended up working for a plastic piping company, where he advanced to the position of Sales Manager, responsible for the company’s Mining Division. After 20 years with the company, a most fortunate thing occurred: the company went bankrupt and closed doors. Whilst most will see the loss of a job as the end of the world, for Johan this gave him the chance of a new beginning – the chance to start his own company and turn his love for photography into a career. As the old saying goes: “Choose a job you love and you never work another day in your life”.
