Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Jacques du Toit, I am a professional commercial photographer based in the West Rand, South Africa but I do love to travel.
My main interests are: Architectural, Headshots, Food, Fine Art, Landscapes and Seascapes. However, I have a wide range of experience that covers: Product, Wildlife and Travel. Having this experience allows me to broaden my view of photography. I strive to keep my clients happy.
Being a photographer allows one to meet people and travel as much as possible. Looking for something attractive, waiting for the right light and exploring forgotten places is what I love about being a photographer.
I have received a Diploma in Professional Photography from Blackford Centre and have attended numerous practical and theory photography courses and workshops to keep myself up to date on new aspects of photography.
One of my greatest accomplishments so far is coming third at an international Photography contest in 2015. The Prix de la Photgraphie, Paris. And being published in their annual book.
The best part of photography is being able to show others what you saw and the way that you saw it. Visual impact is so much greater than only words can describe, adding a picture to those words really helps others to be able to imagine what you were experiencing at that point in time.
