Thuli Phongolo to photographers: Give me magic

Published on

Thuli Phongolo has come out against so-called experienced photographers that merely use presets as editing tools, but still charge the cost of a professional and skilled photographer.

Thuli Phongolo took to Twitter on Tuesday, 3 August 2021, to share a thread which lambasted unskilled photographers who masquerade as professional photographers. The club DJ and actress has created a stream of income for herself as a content creator for multiple commercial brands as an influencer or brand ambassador. Phongolo has worked with many photographers, and has seemingly learnt to tell skilled ones from the unskilled.

In her contentious thread, she wrote, “Some photographers need to stop this thing of adding presets to pictures then calling it ‘final edits’, honestly, I can do that with my phone. If I hired you, it means I want better quality than what my phone can produce. Work on skin, make colours pop…etc. Give me magic. Skill!”

Phongolo took to Twitter again on Wednesday, 4 August 2021, to share a post which suggested that her aforementioned post was prompted by her looking for a photographer for four different photoshoots for her brand work. It will be of interest to find out which photographer she chose for the shoot.
