Klarese Nel’s Blog - Klaresdesign
“I am a second year student with a drive and a optimistic view on life. I am studing CSP ( costume styling and photography) and MSP ( makeup styling and photography) and i an loving it! It allows me to think creatively, to make characters come to life on screen and pleasing the viewers aesthetically is what drives me. CMS chose me… and with the help of the best Lectures namely Miss Stephani Esterhuisen and Mr Micheal Ivy that are always eager to teach us and help us individually with things it allowes for our ideas to transform to reality. CMS is not only make up, costome and photograhy, but phychology and learning life skills in how you can always create oppertunities and grow not only in a personal way but in a proffesional way. I live and breathe CMS..then, now and forever..” - Klarese Nel
Catharine Basson’s Blog - The arrival of the birds
“I’m just a fun-loving person and like my blog says we need to keep exploring. I love the idea that there is so much out there that we can learn about and you can always gain new knowledge and that’s why I’m always posting about absolutely everything. CMS at AFDA isn’t just about all the classes and bizarre yet awesome assignments, it feels like we are a family. Everyone helps everyone and Miss Esterhuizen and Mr Ivy are always there to help and provide guidance.” - Catharine Basson

Johan Hager’s Blog - It is only a smile away.
“I’m from the Northern Cape. when I finished school, I received a degree in photography. Was on ships for a year and traveled the world, from Hon-Kong to Alaska. I love to travel and to meet interesting people. I like all types of photography.
Photography is a big part of me. I’m currently at AFDA studding Cinematography and MSP. When I capture images I want my subject and viewer to feel that the experience was only a smile away.” - Johan Hager
