Commercial Photographer in Cape Town

Pictures Tell the Story of Your Brand

Since 2007, I have been creating pictures to tell my clients' stories.

I grew up with a camera in my hands and since yearly years set my focus on becoming a professional photographer.

I started working as a freelance photographer for a local newspaper while studying at university. In those days we still photographed on film, which taught me valuable lessons that I apply to my work today.

Now, that I work exclusively digital, I benefit from my experience to get as much as possible right in camera and can focus on other things in post production. For many of my portraits, I use film simulations, which emulate the look and feel of images shot on film.

People Focused

I love working with people

Over the years, Iearnt that most people don’t like to be photographed.

In a professional context, it is often not your choice to have portraits taken for your business, but it helps to add personality to your brand.

With many years of experience, I grew a deeper insight into body language and how you can present yourself in front of the camera to bring out your best side into the frame.

Where possible, I work with a makeup artist for a polished, but natural look. 

I keep traditional face retouch to a minimum, as I believe that it is important to show who you are.

Commercial Photography

When I started my business as photographer in Cape Town, I did not focus on commercial work.

I transitioned into commercial photography and enjoy what many might see as limitations. Brands have their own identity and I love learning the visual language that those brands represent.
