Gareth Pon shares how finding your innocence helps with creativity
About the speaker
Gareth Pon is one of those people you see online but have no idea what he actually does for a living.
Born and bred in Johannesburg, South Africa. Gareth is a filmmaker, photographer, creative consultant and Africa’s Top Instagrammer (named by African Blogger Awards in 2014 & 2015) – He has been featured by CNN, MTV & Instagram’s Official Blog. Gareth is absolutely stubborn about keeping his head in the clouds and dreams of one day fulfilling his ultimate dream of going to space and capturing a photo of the Earth’s curvature in zero gravity. In addition to his creative practices, Gareth is also a passionate believer in community and founded one of the first Instagram communities in South Africa. He has since travelled extensively in the USA, Europe and in Africa, worked with numerous brands and agencies and pioneers the use of Digital Mobile Content and Instagram as mediums for creative expression in branding, marketing, and documentation. He currently makes his living from content creation, Instagram influence, and creative consultation.
Until Gareth can one day fulfil his dream of space travel, he will continue making pixels and refusing to live a mediocre life, while keeping up the hope of one day meeting a girl whose dreams are as ridiculous as his.
