Grethe


I AM a nationally and internationally published conceptual, fine art and fashion photographer based in Somerset West, South Africa. My studies in graphic design led me to photography in 2006, which I eventually ended up pursuing full-time well after obtaining my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Design in 2008.

My aesthetic is polished, meticulously crafted and I strive for technical excellence in my images, having had the pleasure to have worked with and be mentored by some of the industry’s finest, from fashion designers to makeup artists to fellow photographers and retouchers.

Even though my main focus is fashion and styled shoots, I also do love shooting products and advertising campaigns. A typical day in my life is filled with copious amounts of tea-drinking, working, not sleeping and being a nerd.

When I am not a photographer, I am an illustrator and I would be happy to do art commissions – you can view my art here: fenyx.co.za or email me at grethe{at}fenyx.co.za!

I LIKE tea, cats, red wine, glitter, travel, Germany, classical music, not-so-classical music, Russia, languages, superheroes, airplanes, mythology, nuclear science, history, random facts, Tom Hiddleston, winter, rain, comic books, fighter jets, cheese, England, Top Gear, Black Books, The Lion King and bright colours.
