Since his younger years, Johan has always showed an interest in film, which saw his working for the SABC after his studies at Pretoria University. He very quickly learnt the tools of the trade and began planning a production of his own. His passion for travel, food and the African continent became his inspiration for the breath-taking show, Voetspore. Filming for Voetspore is done while on road and off the beaten track in some of the most gruelling environments, where quality gear is paramount to the success of the expedition. Some of these expeditions include; Gansbaai to Gabon, Aghulas to Alexandria, Cape to Kilimanjaro, Casablanca to the Cape, the Great Rift Valley and Madagascar.
Leaving the African continent, Johan and his team recently circumnavigated India on Royal Enfield Motorcycles, a journey which took 3 months to complete and produced some of the most fascinating television. The aim of this move from Africa is to slowly introduce South African viewers to other BRICS countries. BRICS being an acronym for an association of five major emerging national economies: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. Johan, we wish you many more successful adventures, near and far.
