Early days

The Photographer

Well it started in small town Tzaneen, Limpopo in 1992 where our first studio opened named “The Photographer”

The goal was simple, provide great photography and unique product that will last for generations.
Our signature product, traditional canvas, is still today one of a kind in South Africa. It’s fade-resistant, water-resistant finish will last a lifetime and then some.
Traveling to all corners of South Africa soon became a weekly affair for the team as there were very few professional photographers around in the good old days of film photography, especially in rural and small town South Africa.
Pretoria became the new home of The Photographer

The Photographer

All grown up

Our little family business had grown up.

We opened another studio in Sandton City Johannesburg, and still provided our photography services all over South Africa as even today, with the recent boom of digital photographers, the need for experience and quality products are greater than ever.


The Photographer

More then 2 decades on, we still love what we do!

Traveling around South Africa, from major cities to small towns, we will bring The Photographer to you.

We are still based in Pretoria, but after almost 17 years in the retail industry, we decided to go back to our roots and reduce our retail footprint. In doings so we are able to get to more places more often, and provide you with the personal touch required to ensure excellent photography.
