ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Roger Sedres

Founder, Photographer

E-mail: roger@sedresmedia.co.za

Roger is an award-winning photojournalist, whose career has spanned 28 years – taking him on assignments to 16 countries around the world. He has worked at four newspapers based in Cape Town, most notably, Chief Photographer of Die Burger (a daily newspaper), where he photographed former president Nelson Mandela’s presidency, as well as the State visit by the American president Bill Clinton. His images have appeared in newspapers and magazines around the globe.

Roger has photographed some of the most newsworthy and unimaginable atrocities that occurred in Cape Town. At the height of an urban terror campaign just before the turn of the millennium, Roger was driving past the Planet Hollywood restaurant in the V&A Waterfront when an improvised explosive device was detonated inside the restaurant. He was awarded a Fuji Press Award for his image of an injured woman being carried to safety. The following year, in 2000, he won two Fuji Press Awards for his image of then South African cricket captain, Hansie Cronje, bursting into tears after completing his testimony at the King Commission into match fixing. This was one of the last images taken of Cronje in public.

Since starting his own business in 2004 Roger focused on international sporting events, most notably covering his second Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 216 where he captured iconic images, such Wayde van Niekerk’s world record in the mens 400m, for a host of South African and international clients.

Roger is currently a part-time lecturer in Photojournalism at the University of Stellenbosch, and for the past two years, a judge of Media24’s Legends journalism competition.

In another commendable feat, two of Roger’s sport images have been included in a sought after book entitled “South Africa’s 100 most famous sports Photos” published by SuperSport and Gallo Images/Getty Images.
