Who we are..
Quantum Photography is professional but fun Photography Studio based in the Moot area of Pretoria that first opened its doors on 1st September 2010. We strive to apply our vast knowledge of photography to create lasting memories for our clients – luring them back to our studio on a regular basis.
This is very much a family affair with myself – Kobus van Dyk – doing duty as Photographer and my wife – Nadine – as second photographer, Album Designer and Post Production Editor of your awesome memories. Together we will make your memories last forever – not only the actual photographs – but also your experience in our humble but fully equipped studio (my wife thinks I have got too many toys in my studio!!).
Quantum Photography believes that “a picture is worth more than a thousand words” and therefore we will try virtually anything and everything to tell this story with our photography, so you can enjoy it years from now. Our photographs are not merely a “let’s get the job done” affair – it is a burning passion for excellence and perfectionism in photography with having absolute fun thrown into the mix. From an in-studio photoshoot, to a 12 hour wedding – our aim is always to relax our clients and having fun with them no matter what. In this way our photographs always seem to come out just fabulous!!
We are two serious extroverts, and therefore have to be around people – maybe that’s the reason why our small and humble company has grown consistently with repeat client bookings on a regular basis.
As the saying goes: “If you love what you do, you will never work another day in your life”
This is what we do:
Quantum Photography only make use of High-End cameras, studio equipment and post production / editing software, computers & monitors to ensure the best possible quality photography. Various studio props are also available to really pump up the fun.
All the above will not make a better photograph, if the photographer and editor in charge of your memories are not dedicated to excellence at all times.
We would love to be your photographers of choice!!
Kobus & Nadine
