I and my passion for arts grew up together. Which helped me discover my love for photography. I started photography when I got my first 5 mega pixel digital camera in 2007, but I started taking keen interest in taking photos when I got my hands on DSLR camera in late 2012. Since then, photography has just become a larger than life thing for me. Now wherever I go, I see things differently and before looking through the viewfinder, I mostly try to make the picture in mind. Photography has also become my career and most of my earning comes from it. Photography means a lot to me. It has taken up most of my life. It helps me see the things that I might have overlooked had I not be a photographer. I can’t imagine going anywhere without the camera.

I enjoy taking all types of photographs be it architecture, landscape, portraiture or the documentary photography – I find myself really fascinated by all of the genres. I can say that Ansel Adams’ amazing work in landscape photography has always inspired me to go out there and shoot the beauty of nature. Along with him Steve Mecurry’s captivating documentation of people’s lives and Ryan Brenizer’s beautiful photographs have a big role in my decision of taking photography as career. I think making up the scene in mind prior clicking the shutter is the most important in getting best out of the subject. This helps understand the subject better.

Henrie Snyman | Photography

My name is Henrie Snyman, I am a automotive photographer from South Africa. I live and breath car photography. I started taking photos of cars when I was a teenager but never thought of it as a profession. After school I went to study graphic design and one of the compulsory subjects was photography. This was where I learned most of the technical skills of photography. I did my internship with a music video company while studying but kept at shooting cars. I built up a portfolio part time and hassled pro photographer for tips and assisting opportunities. This was where the biggest brake through happened and I am still very grateful for the hand up they gave me.

My work has been featured around the world by manufactures social platform and I am currently shooting for two local car magazines. I am currently working on a personal project with the Mercedes AMG GT S that was supplied by Mercedes South Africa. My advice for the youth of today would be to follow your passion because that is what comes natural to you. Find a way to make a living out of it. It might be tough but in the the long run it will be a rewarding life.

I’m just a normal girl from Pakistan who loves taking photos and likes to play around with them. I’m currently studying International business from London and I’m loving it (loving London, not the study part). I began taking pictures about 4 years back. My sisters would dress up and I would take their pictures. Since then I’ve experimented and have grown in my love for photography and pictures. I did it for fun earlier, but then I started sharing my work with people and I got a really positive response which led me to be offered professional services. I absolutely love portrait and wedding photography. I love being surrounded by pure joy of celebrating all the different forms of love which I get to see at wedding or family events.

I want my viewers to say ‘Wow, I wish I was there too”. I want them to be able to actually feel whatever has happened while taking the picture. If they get the feeling, it means I am doing my job right. Other than that, I really want to be able to show a positive and happy side of the world. I do this by mainly capturing happy moments and letting everyone know that if there are tensions in life, there are happy moments too.

Having traveled extensively around our planet my interest in becoming a landscape photographer has come from an obvious source, recording the myriad of fascinating places I’ve visited. Since moving to Australia some 15 years ago my passion for landscape photography flourished. Focusing on the Australian landscape has enabled me to capture the beauty that surrounds us which is often simply passed by. That is why it has become a part of my philosophy to open up these new worlds to others.

Persistence and a keen eye for detail are all part of a landscape photographers makeup, but the philosophy of ‘keeping it real’ has always been at the forefront of my work. Let nature set the scene and with a bit of patience and luck, great images will follow.
My journey so far has taken me the length and breadth of our country. I now run photographic workshops and photo tours within Australia and abroad. To be able to see my clients capture nature in all its glory and to the best of their abilities is a buzz for me and is something I hope to continue long into the future.

I believe we all have a creative side to us and if we can find an outlet for that creativity it can really benefit us whether it be on a personal or social level. Photography allows to me to express my inner feelings with a hope to bringing others along with me for some or just part of that journey. Through photography I’ve not only met many people who like and admire my work but I’ve had the privilege of meeting many other photographer who share this passion. This not only serves to spur me on to greater heights but gives me a sense of belonging. Something I believe can help us all.

I’d define myself as a pure landscape photographer. Put me on top of a mountain with a stunning vista at my feet and I’m a happy man.

My influences have been from more modern Australian photographers like Ken Duncan and Peter Lik. These photographers have been at the forefront of landscape photography now for over 35 years and it’s their styles of simply capturing nature at its best is what defines my photography. I think their styles have taught me that its persistence and the will to get the best from a location that has influenced me the most. There’s no better traits in landscape photography than an iron will and a large dose of patience.

A crucial element to capturing the landscape in all its glory is the use of light. Shooting at sunrise and sunset is essential in capturing photos that are seldom seen and rarely repeated. Working with different formats is inevitable when trying to capture these varying scenes at their best. That is why I employ both panoramic photography and traditional aspects of photography.
