If there's one person in media and business who is truly a household name, it's Oprah Winfrey.
Called by some the "Queen of All Media," through hard work and perseverance, Oprah left behind the poverty of her youth to become a billionaire and one of the most influential people in the world.
I had the ultimate pleasure and experience in photographing her, whilst visiting here in South Africa. She is the most influential, humble,wise and incredible person
I had the unbelievable, probably once in a lifetime, privilege and ultimate pleasure, as a photographer, of photographing Oprah Winfrey whilst here in South Africa, Johannesburg, a couple of days ago...
What an amazing, inspiring, humble, human being she is.
She has always inspired me from her shows when I used to watch when I was younger, but to sit and listen to her speak in real life, was just so incredibly on a different level, all together.
Seriously......What an AMAZING woman.
One lady, all women should aspire to being....even if its just Grateful (like she mentioned and always talks about her "Aha" moments). Be grateful for everything and as she mentioned too....always listen to your "Gut"...its never wrong..EVER :)
I am grateful and blessed to have had the privilege in being in her encompassing aura :)
A few inspiring quotes from Oprah Winfrey:
"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."
"The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but on significance--and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning."
