School Director / Lecturer
A husband, a filmmaker and a follower of Jesus, Jeremy leads Ready Aim Fire with a desire to see the Kingdom of God break out in people's lives.
He studied film & media in Cape Town, which allowed him to work on a feature film in the mainstream industry. From there he worked for 5 years at a production company called Rooftop, that allowed him to travel to 25 countries, creating films for companies such as UNICEF, Coca-Cola and the Global Fund. It was a call of God that saw him leave the industry to pursue education. He desires to see young people equipped while their identity remains firmly planted in Jesus.
Guest Lecturer - Photography
Samantha lectured photography at Nelson Mandela University’s art department for six years, having previously graduated Cum Laude from that institution.
She started her own freelance photography business, working for multinational corporations, doing editorial work for magazines, conducting studio portraiture for national brands, capturing lifestyle photos for the advertising campaigns of various eco-estates, and utilising her documentary-style for many weddings.
Samantha has always had a passion for both the personal and technical sides of art - to not simply teach students skills, but to help them grow.
Beyond seeing people advance in their photography ability, she wants to see them established in the love of God and walking in the call of God on their lives.
