About me

I am an ambitious and passionate Cape Town photographer

Photography and people are my absolute passion. 😍

My work mainly focuses on lifestyle, portraiture and some fashion but I'm always expanding and trying new things.

Through my travels I went on a journey of self discovery. I wanted to find my passion in life, one that I could turn into a career for myself but yet would not feel like a 'job'.
I can confidently say that I've now found it.

Working with people I am given the daily opportunity to not only build into people's lives but to encourage them. The world around us can often be quite a harsh place and so I feel privileged to be able to do what I do.

My daily desire is to create an environment whereby I can try to capture their inner beauty, natural smile and the hidden core of who they really are. Sometimes life throws us a lot of curve balls ... but we are ALL beautiful and photogenic.
We just need to be given a safe place, one of non judgment, inclusion, time and patience to open up. 
And of course been shot at the right angle helps a lot as well.

It's amazing how an experience of feeling empowered and believed in can truly change us.

After high school I attended the Waterfront Theatre School and then soon after, joined a model and acting agency. So I have literally been in this industry as a model and actress on and off since my teens. 

On the off periods I studied graphic design and went onto work as a graphic designer for many years. Please check out some snippets from my graphic design portfolio here. I'm available for all of your design needs as well.

For bookings please contact me.

Well all I have to say is If your looking for the right photographer who knows how to showcase your best sides Tanya is the gal for you! She makes you feel so alive and brings out your best in every photo. I was blown away by her dedication to detail and energy she brings to the shoot before and after. These photos took my brand to the next level. Thank you again Tanya for great pics. Looking forward to our next shoot on Friday. Many more to come. Cheers.

Tanya took photos of my husband and I at the beach and we were highly impressed. She made us feel so comfortable the entire time. It was all very natural as we played around, danced, and laughed with each other while she took our shots.
The result was amazing!!!! The pictures transpired love in the most candid way. 
She is full of energy and doesn't mind throwing herself in the water or the sand to get the best shots! 
I will treasure our pictures forever ❤️
Thank you Tanya!!!
