Romy was born and bred in Switzerland with a Swiss father and an Indian mother. This cross-cultural richness prompted her quite naturally towards travel and, after finishing her business studies degree, she roamed the world for a year before settling in Cape Town where she met her husband Bruce.
Over the last decade - through sheer persistence and passion - she has been a director in a photographic lighting rental company, which serviced the stills and film production industry; run a well-known photo studio; and helped establish the largest lighting rental company in South Africa.
Romy’s interests are family, triathlon, nature, fashion, property and, of course, every single home in the Location Gallery collection.
Originally from Jo’burg, Theresa moved to Cape Town 17 years ago to pursue a lengthy career of educating South Africa’s youth.
Eventually leaving behind her a wealth of cherished memories as an educator, Theresa decided to pursue her keen interest in the more creative fields – which, serendipitously, lead her to Romy and Bruce.
The intervening years have seen Theresa in the position of photo studio manager and assistant co-ordinator, learning very quickly on the job. Focused specifically on advertising and marketing, Theresa discovered that she not only had the patience of a saint (see educator experience) but also an obsession with detail, a meticulous work ethic and a real talent for the artistic side of the background which she hopes to bring to bear in her work at Location Gallery.
