I’m Jandré Germishuizen, and for as long as I can remember, my passion has been the great outdoors.
I’ve spent most of my life in the south of Namibia, where I was introduced to one of the most beautiful places on earth – Sossusvlei. After matriculating in South Africa I realised I had no choice but to follow a career that would allow me to spend most of my time in nature.
I spent some time back home and then returned to South Africa to study nature conservation and guiding, my compact DSLR never leaving my side.
After graduating I accompanied small private groups to Sossusvlei as a guide and later led groups all over Namibia.
I soon realised that photography is my passion. With the help of some great mentors I gradually worked towards accomplishing my dream of becoming a professional photographer, which now is my everyday life. Currently I am a full-time photography guide.
Photography is part of my being. I constantly have the urge to capture what’s new and different. Luring viewers into new worlds, experiences and possibilities gets me excited and motivated to keep doing what I do.
We live in a highly visual world, with the constant opportunity to draw viewers into images. If I can inspire, amuse and entice through what has been a massive presence in my life, nature and images, then my mission is accomplished.
