Hermanus, nestled in the Overberg between mountains and the ocean, is a natural gem with many beautiful spots to visit. During this experience, we will visit some favourite spots for a relaxed photo shoot. Hermanus is a beautiful backdrop for family, individual and couple photos and the photos we take will be a great reminder of your time in Hermanus/ South Africa.
I’m a professional photographer based in Hermanus, South Africa. Growing up in this natural diverse town sparked my love for nature and in turn led me to obtain a degree as a conservationist. My surroundings also inspired me to enter the field of landscape photography. I later developed an interest in photographing people when I starting working in wedding photography. My co-host, Annie, also raised and based in Hermanus, is a full-time portrait artist. She assists me on photoshoots where she applies her artistic talents and eye for detail.
We will start at Fernkloof Nature Reserve where we will be taking photos in the small botanical garden, with its Fynbos and beautiful trees, at the beginning of the reserve. Thereafter we'll move on to the coastline where we'll continue our photo shoot under the Milkwood trees that form part of our natural coastal forests. We'll end with a sunset photo shoot at one of Hermanus' secluded beaches.
What a wonderful experience. Michiel and Annie were good hosts and made us feel very comfortable. The photographs were amazing and we were able to download within 4 days after the experience. Great value for money. Beautiful locations. We would highly recommend this.

Michiel’s Hermanus Outdoor Photo Shoot was everything we expected and more. Michiel and his assistant, Annie, did a fantastic job of not only capturing our family in a set of beautifully done pictures, but of also helping understand more about the habitat we were in and teaching us about the flora and fauna of the region. It was a well done experience and one we’d highly recommend to others. The shoot was carried out over three locales and my sense is that there are even more opportunities for great shots in Hermanus which is simply stunning in terms of landscape. Michiel and Annie did a great job of connecting with our family and especially our children and made them feel completely at ease. It was my son’s birthday and they even brought cupcakes to use as props and enjoy!! Overall the shoot was great, the pics were gorgeous and the turnaround was fast. Great job all around!!!

I greatly enjoyed my experience with Michiel and Annie. They were kind and considerate and made the photo shoot fun and tailored to me. I felt very special and was delighted when we took a coffee break and enjoyed snacks during the shoot. They had scouted out the area for ideal locations for the shots and took time to educate me about the land and plants and animals that are endemic to the area. I got much more than a photo shoot and I am excited to work with them in the future when I come back to South Africa.
