Travys Owen is a director who is known for his graphic, bold and colourful aesthetic. 


Having started his career in design and illustration, Travys has forged an illustrious career as a photographer, and more recently, as a film director. Pulling from his design experience, he constantly works to find ways in which to bring the arresting aesthetic of his photography into film, incorporating off-kilter visual effects and bold lighting choices to create striking visual and narrative content. 


When he's not directing big brand campaign work for Adidas, Superbalist and Woolworths or music videos for some of South Africa's biggest names, you'll likely find him floating down various African rivers with his fly fishing rod in one hand and video camera in the other.
