Gareth Pon

Filmmaker : Photographer : Creative Consultant

Gareth Pon believes that everyone should have at least one ridiculous dream they believe can come true and since he can remember, his has been to go to space. Growing up, he maintained his dream of space travel and avoided it becoming a career, he opted out of becoming an astronaut and chose to be a film maker and photographer instead. 

Apart from his passion for filmmaking and photography, Gareth has spent the last few years pursuing the potential of Mobile Photography and developing the South African Instagramers community, the only South African Instagram community with international relationship and recognition. As a result of his activity and unique approach to creativity, he has been featured by various platforms including Huffington PostArt.MicMail & GuardianResource Magazine and Instagram's official blog.

As Africa's top Instagrammer, founder of the South African Instagramers Community and a passionate creative, Gareth thrives on sharing knowledge and is the leading mind in Africa in the arenas of mobile photography & Instagram. In combination with his knowledge of film, photography, community and brief dabbling in fashion and architecture, his experience serves to give a unique approach to creative innovative ideas. He provides creative consultation on maximising the use of Instagram, building communities, and expanding awareness of product and brand across digital platforms in a creative way, using Instagram, film & photography.

Until Gareth can one day fulfil his dream of space travel, he will continue making pixels, appreciating the simple things in life, inspiring others, occasionally blogging for Huffington Post, loving the colour yellow, enjoying delicious food and refusing to live a mediocre life, while keeping up the hope of one day meeting a girl who’s dreams are as ridiculous as his.
