Gus Van der Walt

Cape Town Photographer

For me, it’s about photographing humans and their story.

Photography for me is an opportunity to tell stories, capture a moment in time and to share this with the world. This is why my focus genres are portrait and street photography.

These genres allow me to tell stories, human stories, that are real and authentic.

I am based in Cape Town, South Africa where I get to play in some of the best streets and natural settings.

I couldn’t decide what genre of photography excites me most to focus on it solely. Then I realized it’s not so much the genre that excites me. It’s the subject. People. Humans.

This is why I’ve focused on streets and portraiture. I get to photograph what I am passionate about most.

I know what you thinking, what about landscapes? Well, I need a break and a way to test my creativity. It is also why I have these projects.

A Reflection

  More often than not, we ignore those who work to keep our streets clean. We just walk by not seeing these people. That is why I wanted to capture this photo. The gentleman was walking down [...]
