Nicolene Potgieter

Johannesburg, GP, South Africa

Summary

I studied photography at the Pretoria Technikon School of Photography. After that I started my own business in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga and worked in all sorts of genres, from beauty/model photography to products and corporate events. My real passion lies in nature photography but I cannot resist the thrill of a studio set where you have control over your lighting. I love meeting and shooting interesting people and often my clients walk away as friends. Photography is not just a job, it is a lifestyle.
