Photography for me is an enigma. I fell into this career by a fortunate accident. Statistics will tell that only 13% of people worldwide will find the job that they love. Photography is my passion. This is my purpose. I strive every day to become better and I love the journey.

Photography has allowed me to travel the globe sharing pivotal milestones and personal events with people who entrust me to capture these priceless memories and allow me to tell their story my way.

Mr Carson from Downtown Abbey once famously quoted, “The business of life is the acquisition of memories,” but even more so are those memorable moments and events captured on film for print for ourselves, family and friends to re-live!

That’s what I live and strive for: to capture that fleeting moment that may be lost in time but can be relived on film. It’s with this commitment that I have remained a classic portraiture and photojournalist at heart for more than two decades of photography. My love of line and form recently opened a new career path in the form of Architectural photography and winning the Steel and Construction Award’s Architectural Photograph of the Year was an unexpected accomplishment.

“blah blah blah, I’m a passionate photographer, blah blah blah”. You know the deal, so I won’t bore you with that stuff. The bottom line is that telling your story is what gets me excited.

I’m also super passionate about teaching others how to take great photographs, so I occasionally teach and do talks at various photo schools and expos. I run my own workshops around the country for photographers as well.

I’ve photographed weddings all over the country, but I’m not limited to South Africa.

Martin Osner

South African born photographer, Martin Osner (1963), favours a more expressive vision that accords with his visual understanding and spiritual appreciation of the world. After growing up in Johannesburg, Martin soon began to establish a solid reputation as a professional photographer and artist, opening his first photographic studio in 1985. From here, Martin went on to co-found the National College of Photography in 1993; an establishment that today has gone on to become a premier photographic training institution in Southern Africa.

As a multi-award winning artist and being voted the best contemporary international artist 2008 / 2009 by ArtequeArt Volume 3 (Masters of Today), Osner eschews “straight forward” photography. His work is characterized by an urge to explore, with the willingness to experiment. He bears out his belief that simplicity is the cornerstone of successful imaging, by concentrating closely on elemental form, pattern and shape, paired with a necessary sense of restraint.

Today Martin is based in Cape Town, South Africa, where he specialises in a contemporary portfolio of fine art photography, sold through his own signature gallery in Green Point, Cape Town. His collection consists of ghostly abstract renditions, moody landscapes and social documentary imaging, offered in limited edition Gicleé and traditional black & white vintage prints, in a collectors’ market.

Peter Morey

From capturing an intimate off- screen moment of Robert de Niro; to Nelson Mandela laughing at his birthday celebration; from innovative images of Emperors Palace to Tiger Woods’ triumphant whoop at the Million Dollar Golf challenge – these are the type of events that acclaimed South African photographer Peter Morey has been excelling at for over 21 years.

It’s no secret that for Peter, photography is both his profession and his passion. And it shows in the broad range of powerful images in his photographic portfolio.

 After joining the Pretoria News photographic department in 1981, Peter went on to become its chief photographer, a position he held until resigning in 1990.

A year later, he channelled his creative expertise into his own business venture, Peter Morey Photographic.

Since then his Pretoria-based business has grown steadily, boasting an impressive array of clients that rely on Peter to deliver perfect images on time, every time.

Years as an award winning news photographer have not only enhanced Peter’s photographic expertise, but also honed his visual eye, timing and ability to anticipate the action even before the camera starts clicking.

Despite an enviable reputation in the industry as one of South Africa’s leading corporate, event and celebrity photographers, Peter remains refreshingly humble, down to earth and matter of fact about his achievements.

I’m an Aussie living in Africa but working wherever the wildlife calls. I’m a passionate wildlife lover and conservationist at heart with a need for technical excellence in what I do.

What is it that I do? For the last 15 years I’ve worked as a wildlife photographer and cinematographer for clients such as NatGeo WildWildAid, United Nations as well as various wildlife NGO’s and non-profits along with commercial campaigns for Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Bvlgari and Converse among others.

I’m a published author with three books under my belt and more to come. I sporadically make videos about wildlife and photography to share my passion and some tech advice.

I also run photographic expeditions all over the world and would love for you to join me!

As much as I dreaded public speaking as a kid, I actually now thoroughly enjoy it, especially because I get to share my passion for wildlife with people as well as all the wild adventures I’m lucky enough to experience as my job. I present internationally so please get in touch if you have a speaking engagement you’d like to discuss.

I’m most active on Instagram, where I post almost daily and include photo tips, settings and behind the scenes.
