About Us

Passionate Photographers in Pretoria and Gauteng

Who we are...

Quantum Photography is professional but fun Photography Studio based in Montana Park, the North Eastern Suburbs of Pretoria, close to the N1 and N4 Freeways, first opening our doors on 1st September 2010. Even though our Studio is based in Pretoria, we nonetheless travel throughout South Africa for assignments. We strive to apply our accumulated knowledge of photography to create special memories for our clients. Luring them back to our studio time after time.

This is very much a family affair with myself – Kobus van Dyk – doing duty as Photographer. My wife – Nadine – as second photographer. Nadine also oversees the album design and post production editing. 

Then there is our awesomely capable office manager – Linet Nagel. She is in charge of the actual post production of your photographic 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.

It is our belief that “a picture is worth more than a thousand words”. Therefore we will try virtually anything to tell your story with our photography.

Our photographs are subsequently not merely a “let’s get the job done” affair. No – rather a burning passion for excellence and perfectionism in photography. From an in-studio photo shoot, to a 12 hour wedding – the same standards apply. Resulting in our photographs always seem to come out just fabulous!! The saying goes: “If you love what you do, you will never work another day in your life”.
