Profile Picture

Welcome to my site!

Hi.  I am Maria, full time photographer who perceives the world in “frames per second”, even when I don’t have my camera with me.  I am happy when I am behind my camera and I love being with people (and my dogs).  I have invested a great deal in my business, also with regards to training and self improvement.  Most of my mentors are fine art photographers and the best in their field.  I believe a bit of their magic has rubbed off on me… I shall never cease to learn.  

Photography can be used as a medium to tell a story, elicit conversation, evoke emotion and create mood and add drama.  I often add external lighting in my sessions to achieve this.  

Are you getting married? Let me tell your story and make it last a lifetime.  I am based in Upington, but nothing stops me from travelling when you decide on a destination wedding.  Call me!
