Johan Pretorius is a Bloemfontein-based photographer who specialises in portraits of families and other interesting people.
Johan’s passion for photography, creative bent and perfect touch is visible in each one of his striking images.
Johan is ably assisted by the most stunning lady in the world, his wife Anneri. The couple has been married for 20 years, and have two beautiful children, Guinevere (14), and a son, Delarey (11).
Anneri’s contribution to the success of the business is immeasurable (just don’t tell her, she might ask for a raise!). Like all couples, Johan and Anneri sometimes disagree, but they never forget the blessing of working together and making life fun.
After 30 years of full-time experience as a professional photographer, the couple run the studio from Bloemfontein, in central South Africa. From here Johan regularly travels to photo shoots in other parts of the country and beyond South Africa’s borders. Johan has been fortunate to have worked in 30 countries, to have had his photographs published all over the world, and to have had the opportunity to meet the most fascinating people.
