If you ever think “cinematography whisperer” then without a doubt, Tiyane Nyembe must be the next thing on your mind. His precision with lighting to create enchanting pictures, paired with his passion, ability to tell stories, and his calm and easy energy on set, is definitely the reason he is the youngest and first Black African to be inducted into the SASC (South African Society of Cinematographers), He is also a SAFTA (South African Film &TV Awards) nominee for best achievement in cinematography.
When he isn’t behind the camera creating mind-blowing visuals then he is judging for platforms such as the Oscars and the SAFTA’s. He has admirable experience in local and international drama series, short films and commercials. And he has only just started. Many of his finest frames are still in his head. But as he says – less talk, lets film!
