|Hello! My name is Hannes Uys and welcome to my wedding photography website + blog. For a living I take photographs of beautiful people and cool industrial things. I am currently based in the city of Johannesburg, South Africa from where I may be editing my last project or busy planning the next trip. Like so many photographers I can probably write many a word about how much I love this visual medium or how wonderful my job is, but in reality for me it is not like that. It’s worse, it’s all that I am.|
As a wedding photographer I am honoured to have been selected by Admired in Africa as one of Africa’s best wedding photographers and some of my edgiest work was chosen by Kat Williams to be featured on the world famous Rock ‘n Roll Bride. Apart from digital media my work has also been published quite a few times. I am also a member of SAPP.
My eye is always on the lookout for great light and that short fleeting moment. My favourite quote of Walker Evans puts it so well: “Stare. It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long.”
I love my Nikons.
