Why Travelling Namibia?

As a documentary photographer I am often offered the chance to shoot in locations other than my own town. These often include lodges and guest farms across Namibia. With a tourism background, I decided to combine my skills and my knowledge in tourism and share the wild and explosive beauty that is Namibia.

Until fairly recently I had no real aim or plan with Travelling Namibia. I knew I wanted to share my country with travelers from across the globe – from a Namibian perspective. I just didn’t quite know how. Then in 2017 I was offered the opportunity to travel with a tour operator as photographer. It forced me to re-think my blog, my strategies and life in general.

For 2018 I have come up with a plan. A strategy. Will it work? Well, I don’t know. I sure hope so as this country has so much to offer and I want to share it with the world – all from one platform – Travelling Namibia.


Feel free to join the ride by Following the Blog or if you feel the need to contact me for one of my services – please do!

The Photographer

Namibia is one heck of a beautiful country. Imagine getting married here? There is no place more raw than right here to seal your love.

If you are looking to elope in Namibia – look no further for a local photographer who not only knows the country for local travelling advice but is also a wedding photographer.  (
