IamdifferentSA- Photography expedition by Paul Ramaema

Who is Paul Ramaema and What do I do? 
Paul Ramaema is a 27year old, Johannesburg-based creative, born in Bethlehem (Free State) and raised in Harrismith; Bloemfontein; Pretoria and Johannesburg.
I studied film & Motion picture production at the Tshwane University of Technology. I currently work as a creative researcher in the commercials (Film production) industry. I am working towards becoming an established director and writer in the film industry. Photography has always been a passion of mine and began from when I started taking behind the scenes stills for the ads
2) How would you define your style?  
My style is genuinely influenced by the content that I am working on at that time.  What I do know, is that I am passionate about character’s and people so I suppose indirectly they represent my style.
3) What inspires my work?
Anything that speaks to me on a personal level .
4)  What are you currently working on? 
I am in the process of marketing my expedition to as many people in different places as possible, I plan on taking the campaign further than where it is now. I have hopes of going to smaller untapped towns and the usual big cities i.e. Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria to highlight the uniqueness of individuals living in and around these areas. The photography expedition is titled “IamdifferentSA” so it wouldn’t be fair to only have it in Johannesburg and on a once off basis. Once the project reache’s it’s full cycle I will then host an exhibition either at a gallery or independently to exhibit the work and see how far the campaign will go.
5) What advice would you give young creatives looking to do what you do ?  
Work hard and believe in yourself.
6) What has been the highlight of your career thus far? 
This current expedition and the response it has received.
7) Where can readers follow your work ?
