Hello, I am Charmaine Hoover
Welcome to my website! It is a real privilege to have you here. I hail from Durban, South Africa, except it doesn’t hail so much here but has glorious sunshine all year through. Some showers of rain, is a “Blessing”. Well I am sixty something and discovering myself through photography and all things creative. Yep!! Getting myself messy on a pottery wheel and creating images not so accurate on a canvas . Ha! not forgetting needling my way through crocheting and sewing. So I thought to myself, why not share my life through photography with the world, after all we are only here on earth for a short time and before you know its time to head “home”. Eek! Don’t want to think of that. Where have I been before I broke into this digital media world?
Working at a desk job from 9 to 5. Yes..done that for thirty five years. The most beautiful part of that life was bringing into this world three gorgeous children and sharing my life with them and my hubby. The three kids have flown the nest, leaving me with the big guy who is still working.
My love for photography began years ago when I won a camera in a tv competition. Saw my name roll up on screen. Wow! I thought I was famous. Nevertheless this passion grew and I always found myself behind the lens whenever we had family and friends at home. Since I love being in front of the camera too, you will see me in some of the photos. Blush! Please enjoy the numerous photos I put out there and you are most welcome to contact me. So Long:)
