“a photograph is forever”
Most photographers take pictures, I tell stories.
Whether it is immortalizing moments for families and generations to come, or making a woman shine the brightest as a bride; you can be rest assured that your in the utmost capable hands as I am committed to excellence in whatever I do.

Being Married myself, I understand the importance, of having your wedding day be captured perfectly, it is a day to celebrate your love.

Daniel started his photography career during his time in Brazil, South America, where he was introduced to the arts of film photography; hand developing his photographs he took, in the dark room.
But it was only after his high-school career that he pursued the photography seriously, where he assisted world renowned fashion and commercial photographers in Cape Town. He then completed his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Visual communication in Pretoria, focusing mainly on Photography and Film. During which, Daniel worked in the Fashion and Commercial industry as a main shooter for over 4 years. But his heart was stolen by the beauty of love, real emotions, and the stories of each couple he met with. His focus shifted to capture the aesthetics of weddings.
Honoured to have a few international awards and accolades behind his name, he remains humble and is proud to be a member of international associations; Fearless photographers, ISPWP, and WPS. Daniel loves to travel, and explore the immensity of the world, and his passion for photography shines through.
