Jana Marnewick


I would like to work in Pretoria more than Cape Town at this stage in my career. Broaden my horizons a bit in South Africa and the rest of the world. I am willing to travel anywhere I have a passion for traveling, meeting new people and discovering new cultures.


A Short Bio of Myself and my Business
A bit about how I work
I love the in between moments. The imperfect and unposed moments. I try to capture that spontaneous moment whether it be a giggle or a kiss. Natural light is my absolute favourite. I love how light can set a mood in a picture.
I can honestly say that I enjoy every single shoot I get to do, because there is no routine in any shoot. The one factor that makes me love my job so much is the people I get to meet and the moments I am privilege to capture. So in short… I love photographing people!
I still learn every time I pick up my camera or browse the internet… yes the world is my platform for knowledge and I intend to learn as much as I can, as far as I go.
A bit about me
I often wonder how to describe myself in a few words:  So this is my attempt to make you understand me a little better. I am quirky, adventurous, friendly, spontaneous, creative, energetic and sporty. I absolutely love animals and all beautiful things God created. I have an undesirable passion for traveling and meeting new people of different cultures.
I was born in the Jacaranda city in lovely Pretoria and moved to the Mother City, Cape Town 16 years ago. But be assure wherever you live, I will gladly travel to capture a special day or event.
And here is for the nitty gritty stuff. Okay a few things about me that you may want to know is that I have a degree in Photography and studied for 3 years to become the best photographer that I can be at Stellenbosch Academy.
When I am not taking photos, looking at other work on the web or editing photos. I am a sporty person and love being in the outdoors. I play netball, cycle (I call myself a weekend warrior), cook and love making videos of my adventures.
I enjoy good wine with friends and family, seeing as we only have one life, I intend to enjoy it.
