Born in Cape Town, raised in Gugulethu, it was Motheo’s love of imagery that led him to study at the National College of Photography.
His interest in creating powerful pictures and the drive to expand moments drove him to explore the possibilities of cinematography.
Having graduated with an already impressive list of achievements, Motheo has completed several feature films that made waves at some of the most highly respected film festivals around the world.
He has worked on a wide variety of formats, with a lot of different directors, including Africa’s 1st Netflix original Queen Sono, but one thing remains the same: Motheo’s gentle character and collaborative working style make anything possible, a formidable skill in an industry built on imagination.
Motheo has also had the honour of judging some of the top advertising awards around the world including D&AD, Loeries, Clios and Ciclope.
