Who we are...
Quantum Photography is professional but fun Photography Studio based in Pretoria, 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”.
We are – Passionate Photographers in Pretoria and Gauteng
This is what we do:
Firstly – at Quantum Photography we only make use of High-End cameras, lenses, studio lighting and equipment. Secondly – we update our post production and editing software on a yearly basis. And thirdly – our computers & monitors are also upgraded regularly therefore ensuring a faster and more effective post production workflow.
In conclusion – we don’t spare any effort to ensure the best possible end result to you our valuable client. In addition to all the above, we make extensive use of carefully selected studio props so your photo session will be a unique experience.
All the above will not make a better photograph, if we as a team in charge of your memories are not dedicated to excellence at all times.
We would love to be your photographers of choice!!
“Only the Best is Good Enough”
