About me

“Photography is all about light, Composition and, most importantly Emotion”

In my mind’s eye, I visualize how a particular …Sight and feeling will appear on a print. If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good Photograph. It is an Intuitive sense, an ability that comes from a lot of practice and passion. A Portrait is not made in the camera, but on either side of it.

Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and Everything to do with the way you see them. The camera is my tool, through it I give a Reason to everything around me.

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…
It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything. When People look at my pictures, I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.

Thank you for taking the time to browse through my website. I am based in Swakopmund Namibia and love new born, Maternity, family and wedding Photography. Please feel free to contact me for a wedding Quote or Price list.

I took the liberty to ask a few clients in short what they think of me as a photographer and person, as it's not very easy to describe oneself, well...not for me.


Here goes: 


Driven; committed / focused; fun and playful, yet professional; accommodating, yet serious; energetic with a positive outlook on life. Thankful , appreciative, always striving for perfection, eye for detail, ability to see beyond what's in front of the lens and capture the soul of a subject or moment. 


Very casual, loveable and caring nature, you have a warm and inviting smile that makes a person feel at ease. You glide with taking pictures, everything is smooth and natural, it never feels that one has to act in front of your lens. The sparkle in your eyes shows interest in the person and family that you are photographing, you immediately creep into a person's heart and become part of the shoot...part of the family. You are genuine and even the kids pick up on your fun and adventurous spirit always looking at new ways to capture that special moment in a very unique way for each individual or family. 


Someone that not only have a passion for photography, but born with a God given talent. 

your personality click's so well with your clients , one feel's immediately as if we known each other for years. 

You settle for nothing less than perfection in your work, you capture precious moments so beautiful that can be

looked at for many generations to come. 

Hoping the descriptions from these awesome and beautiful clients gave you an idea what I am all about :)
