Wedding, Property, Lifestyle and Events Photographer
The Essence of a Moment
Wedding, Property, Lifestyle and Events Photographer. I strive to create everlasting impressions in my goal to be the most sought-after choice for photography in and around Cape Town, the Western Cape and the rest of South Africa. Venture Photography is a photographic company that was established in 2016. My focus is property photography, wedding photography, event photography and lifestyle photography.
I have always had a passion for photography but more as a hobby. Capturing moments while I travel, landscapes, creative homes and moments between people. This has led to a whole new direction as people started to request my services and Venture Photography was born. The idea of travel, exploring and capturing led to the slogan: The Essence of a Moment. That is exactly what Venture Photography is looking for.
The challenge of capturing special moments with a passion for people and framing moments that will last a lifetime. My interest in property, led to an opportunity to capture creative buildings, new developments and newly decorated homes. This has led to various hotels and guest houses requesting the services of Venture Photography. The art of showcasing space, design and flow, is deeply rooted in the essence of Venture Photography.
I have always had a strong connection with sport. Growing up a love of sports and the outdoors. For me, photography has given me the opportunity to hunt for those special moments, while out in nature taking part in a big sport event. From the creative moment, the interaction between team-mates and the expressions on people’s faces. The highs and lows and ultimately, the success, is what Venture Photography strives to capture.
I have manged to overlap not just my passion for photography but also my interests in life, to combined and offer a professional service. I will always strive to be more
creative, explore more and showcase this passion as we travel this world on yet
another adventure. This is where I will find the Essence in every Moment.

Gerhard is absolute outstanding photographer. He has the ability to capture the true nature
of people and the events as well as making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I would recommend Gerhard to any person looking for a professional photographer to capture their special moments. His images truly speak more than a thousand words!
Gerhard’s passion for photography was always evident in the images he captured, first just
as a hobby and eager to share these moments with friends. Slowly it became more of passion than hobby and he began to build a social media following. I was lucky enough to
ask him to capture my sisters engagement and wedding, those images speak more than the
proverbial 1000 words. With an eye for detail, spotting unique settings and an ease and calm
about him that make his clients at ease he delivered better than what we could have asked for.

I wish I could get married once a month. For all the obvious reasons but also to be surrounded by the amazing key-players who were a part of it…and one of those people was Gerhard. I was a pretty relaxed bride but even if I hadn’t been, this is one person you want on your team for the day. I’d have forfeited hair and make-up to have him there! I can’t explain how fantastic it was to have Gerhard as part of the gathering the night before, as well. I have an incredibly special collection of photos to look back on. Some make me laugh, some make me cry, all make me thankful. We had a lost ring at one stage, an owl who misbehaved, we had a skew cake, doggies on the dance floor and we had the most amazing night under a Stanford sky. I have all these memories to look back on, thanks to Gerhard.
I want to acknowledge you as an amazing photographer, an expert in your field with a great
knowledge and experience in photography and a gift to teach and train someone else with your easy and warm personality. I salute you Sir! I am now also honored to be called your friend, and that is thanks to our shared passion of photography. Looking forward to many more out and about photo opportunities.
I went on a guided tour with Gerhard last summer and I cannot tell you what a wonderful experience it was. When you read the guide books you get an idea of what to expect but I can honestly say the trip was amazing. Our trip was listed as a trip to Cape point and to Boulders Beach, both of which are much talked about in the guide books. However, my trip was so much more than this and this was down to the amazing passion and local knowledge from our Tour Guide Gerhard. I was blown away by boulders beach and I was blown away with Cape point, but as spectacular as they both were, I have no doubt that the experience was made even more special by having such a wonderful tour guide. South Africa has always been one of my favourite places in the world but now I just want to see even more of it and there will be only one way and one tour guide I would want to see it with.
“Venture Photography provided a professional service from the get-go. Gerhard did a tour of
our venue days before the event to check the lay-out and the best lighting. His infectious personality allowed our staff to feel comfortable and at ease when taking their portrait shots
while at the same time enjoying the process. Our guests who attended our evening function were approached subtly for pictures and didn’t mind having many taken. This only displays more the high level of professionalism and experience that comes with working with Gerhard
and Venture Photography.”
Gerhard is always a dream to work with. He is a perfectionist and extremely detail orientated – a true professional! He has taken the photographs at both our daughters matric dances and we could not be happier with the results. Nicola loved working with him and is elated with her photographs. I loved the fact that he wanted a visual reference to the look
and feel she wanted beforehand and that he took the time and effort to find the right venue.
The results speak for themselves!
