I am a Commercial Architecture Photographer, Interior Photographer, Real Estate Photographer and Headshot Photographer / Portrait Photographer.
Hi, my name is Jacques du Toit and I am more than just a photographer, I am the person that looks out for your best interests when it comes to how you are viewed online or in a book.
I love photographing architectural work as well as headshots, these are my main areas of study in the photography genre, with architecture real estate plays a part as well as interiors as interiors done right to match the architecture is an amazing combination of all different creative fields.
I started playing with a camera in 2010 and in 2012 I started taking my work more seriously, starting with attending workshops and courses and following other photographers to see how they work and what they do. In 2015, I won 3rd Place in the Prix de la Photographie, Paris Open competition and in 2016 I received my Diploma in Professional Photography Level 4.
My aim in photography is to make you or your premises look as presentable and approachable as possible. My goals became to understand this better and therefore I started doing more training and learning. Learning headshot work through two of the best in the business from the United States, Peter Hurley as well as Dylan Patrick, this way I had an understanding of Studio style headshots as well as on location headshots, so that I can offer more of what you would need. I have been an avid follower of Mike Kelley and his work and been through all of his training tutorials as well as shooting natural light for myself. This way I can take on a project and do as needed, be it just the natural light being used or doing complex lighting on a property to make it look different without it looking artificial.
I do have at times a witty sense of humour and having grown up with Black Adder and Mr Bean, it can add a little dark humour there as well. This helps lighten the mood when needed and to make sure people are having a bit of fun. I am a firm believer in enjoying what you are doing and try my best to let others enjoy themselves as well, giving you an experience that you would be able to remember.
