- Tremayne WestEditor of Beauty By Trem
Beauty editor and Makeup artist
I’ve been in the hair and makeup industry for 5 years and have found my passion in beauty and editorial makeup. I find inspiration not in a picture, but in a person’s face. I have a passion for making people look beautiful, but mostly making them feel beautiful. I’m a down to earth unfussy party girl, that loves life, people and spontaneous experiences! Step in to my world, you’re bound to have a good time…

A lady of leisure, she loves getting dressed up for special occasions and strutting her fabulous Dog’s Life style. Her Hills diet keeps her slim and trim and always looking her best for those off-guard photo opportunities. With great admiration and love for her human Sophie has a soft gentle nature and brings a touch of french elegance and sophistication to the under5foot team.
- Gay Best Friend
It would be easy to believe that Devon was born with exceptional looks and style, but this would be wildly inaccurate. He was what you would call an ugly duckling and only really found his style and flair for fashion later on.
The last 2 years has seen my interest in fashion become a lot more of a way of life rather than just an interest for me. Its definitely exciting seeing the new trends being set and then again to see how people are emulating those trends.
Nobody is perfect and I am sure that I get it wrong from time to time. Its important to note that ones style does define who you are, and more importantly how others define you.
One of Devon’s key gifts is being able to tell it as it is. If you are looking for an honest opinion then look no further than you GBF.

- The Wine Gal
Tremayne is a Self taught wine connoisseur with a passion for bold wines. Her wine education began at the ripe age of 9, as her dad used to give her a sherry glass of wine at dinner once a week. Her dad believed she had an exceptional palette and it needed to be put to good. These lessons grew her love and admiration for wine and indulges in it often. Tremayne has an unfussy, unpretentious and light hearted outlook on the wine industry.

- Lady LippyEditor of Surviving Single
So a little bit about me. I am pretty much your average Sue, or whatever the female equivalent of average Joe is. Perhaps slightly broader in the waist area, but working on it I am perpetually single. I was very closed off to the whole dating thing for quite a while but decided to get back on the horse, so to speak, not literally, (horses scare me!!!!!!) and have been putting myself out there. You have to kiss some frogs before you meet your prince (or so I have been told) and, Honey, am I kissing them, Soooooo many frogs! All for your reading pleasure
- Michael ParrisPhotographer and Videographer
Apart from being a photographer I surf, I skate and I kite surf. That’s me in a nut shell and that’s all you need to know. I spend a lot of my time leaving my home in the Northern Suburbs to travel up and down the West Coast in search of waves and things to shoot. I spend plenty time out with friends and I’m always up for adventure and good time.
- Klee BarrisFoodie
Enthusiastically self-appointed foodie, wine quaffer extraordinaire, shower singer and qualified dancing queen, I share these appetites with family, friends and anyone who will jump on the band wagon with me.
As a daily practice I live by Mark Twain’s “Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right.” coupled with Virginia Woolf’s “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” So much so I went so far as to include eating as an interest on my CV.
- Dayne ShillawDesigner
Self-confessed weirdo with the ability to learn and practice just about anything if you gave him half a reason to do it. Tech-genius, thought-starter and a ‘rage against the system, if the system is flawed’ mentality which promises to be entertaining even at the worst of times. Bottom line, you want this guy on your team.

- Lyton Sibanda
“I always agonise over writing a short bio/introduction, it’s somewhat strange hence I don’t do well on Grindr. So here it goes. I like to describe myself as an occasional hippie, a tree hugger, a flower child and a kind rebel. I am passionate about writing, travel, food and all things digital with a side addiction to Instagram and sunglasses. Fun fact: I shout in Japanese when I’m mad.”
- Kelly-Paige Howell
My never-a-dull-moment life has led me to work in everything from music to food and wine, advertising, tourism, and writing.

Being a part of under5foot gives me the opportunity to start conversations with like-minded people, and that is freaking awesome!
