ABOUT THE BIGGS PICTURE
The Biggs Picture is a film and digital media company, founded in 2016 by father and son, Charles and Cameron Biggs.
ABOUT CHARLES BIGGS
Charles Biggs started photography as a schoolboy in the seventies, after which he spent two years at Central Photographic Training in the SAAF, where he learnt about the highly technical world of aerial and reconnaissance photography. His formal training was at Art School in Port Elizabeth, where he completed a three-year diploma in photography. From there he spent eighteen months at film school in Pretoria, leading to a five-year stint in the film industry. Here he worked as an assistant director and stills photographer on feature films, also directing his own full-length feature. He then took a complete break from the visual arts and went ostrich farming in America and then mixed farming near Graaff Reinet.
He moved to Stellenbosch in 2004 and held a very successful photography exhibition. Apart from freelance work, he has also lectured at Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography. Charles and his wife, Melony, are owners of Karoo Classics.
ABOUT CAMERON BIGGS
Cameron Biggs followed in his father's footsteps, with a keen interest for work in film and videography. After studying at Stellenbosch University, Cameron went on to work in the film industry, working in the production department of South African film La Bohem, and in direction on Uitvlucht and the international feature film Samson. He worked in the art department on the 2018 installment of the Tomb Raider franchise. He also interned on the set of the ABC's Of Kings and Prophets.
He then left the industry to become a freelance videographer and podcast producer.
