We are Xander & Mariaan, a husband and wife team photographing the beauty of South African nature and reviewing the South African hospitality industry.

We recently decided to diversify and expand our freelancing services.

We now offer

  1. a photo shoot of your establishment;
  2. website design, creation and maintenance;
  3. establishment of social media presences;
  4. the development of SEO to promote your website;

and more!

We believe that man and woman were put on this earth to supervise and manage the Creation and as such, we strive to educate and inform people about the wonder of nature through our photography.  We feel that any effort, how insignificant it might be, can have a positive impact on nature conservation.  We also aim to showcase the beauty of South Africa by visiting most of the scenic locations that our country has to offer.

We identify possible partners that have nature related- and based establishments – in order to visit and through our services, promote what they offer.  Our target market is bush/game lodges, wildlife sanctuaries and adventure companies.

We operate within a 120 km radius from our base in Moreleta Park, Pretoria.
