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.
