ABOUT

Ciao. Bonjour. Goeie dag. Howdee. Hola!

My name is Hannes Uys and I am a photographer based in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa.

My focus is on industrial imagery, but have also photographed quite a number of weddings over the years. Documenting weddings has always been purely a labour of love. To be honest, I really don't know what the perfect photograph looks like, but do I know what looks good to me - and how to capture it. People and companies hire me for that. 

When I am not photographing a few beautiful weddings per year, I create cool photographs of cool industrial things and people. Where weddings are about quick events and fleeting emotions, industrial photography is the polar opposite: technical and calculated.

Names in my industrial portfolio include brands such as: Mylan, Scaw, FDC, Schneider, Wahl, I4C, M&T, Novo Nordisk, Life Health, Remax, Joe Public, Dräger, SAB AB InBev, CCBSA, and Ford Foundation.

What kind of clients book me? The out-of-the-box people. The non-average. The non-traditional. Those inspired by the greatness of life. The dreamers and the doers. People who love. And love some more.

As a wedding photographer I have been selected by Admired in Africa as one of Africa's premium wedding photographers. My work has been published a few times and has been featured on Kat William's world famous Rock 'n Roll Bride. My wedding photography style is photojournalistic reportage documentary

On the other side of my life you will find that I am always in discovery mode. It gives balance. 

It's great to have you here. Salute for stopping by. Love and rockets.

    Hallo Hannes

    ek val sommer in met die deur in die huis! Hoop jy is afrikaans. Ons woon in Vrede in die Noord-Oos Vrystaat. Nou wonder jy seker waar de heng is dit? Dit is so half uur van Standerton, 1 uur van Newcastle en so 2 en half ure van Johannesburg af. Klein dorpie met ‘n klein fotografieklub. Ons doen die gewone klub ding so 4 tot 6 keer per jaar waar ons bymekaar kom, foto’s met ‘n seker tema ens inskryf en lekke kuier. Ons probeer ook om elke keer iemand wat baie weet van foto’s daar te hê!
    My vraag is of jy ooit so iets doen en of jy lus is om dalk in die Vrystaat te kom kuier.
    Dit sal lekker wees om iemand van jou kaliber te ontmoet. Hoop om gou van jou te hoor.
    Groete uit Vrede
