Thabang Moalosi 

Thabang, a Joburg based photographer specializes in the realms of fitness and fashion. The majority of his work transpires within the confines of the studio, a realm he favors due to his affinity for controlled and deliberate lighting techniques.

His genesis in the realm of fitness can be traced back to his sporting roots, a trajectory that led him to embrace the challenges of the fitness industry, regardless of its demanding nature.

Fashion photography, an unexpected turn of events, found its way into Thabang's journey and swiftly nestled itself in his heart, birthing a newfound passion he hadn't actively pursued but now ardently cherishes.

Under the banner of "Crispy Juice Box," his brainchild company, Thabang's studio finds its abode in the heart of Joburg, specifically within Newtown Junction Mall. Within these walls, the alchemy of creativity and amusement consistently unfolds.

As he delves into the realm of videography, the saga continues at Crispy studios, promising even more enchantment and artistry.
