Township Rockstar X Puma

By Jay Carson ~ Township Rockstar

We have started to give photographers an experience of working with Puma's visual content for social media. Township Rock star is giving the photographers an experience of working with global brands that Township Rockstar is in collaboration with to help them build their experiences as photographers, to get jobs easy after their qualifications, since there's no experience there's no job. Take a look at the Photoshoot series that we just done with Puma, In courtesy of Sean Steenkamp for the pictures as a photography student from Vega School of brand leadership.
