Hello! We are dna photographers. dna for Desmond ‘n Antonia, just like Rock ‘n Roll.

We are location photographers and shoot editorial, weddings, portraits, automotive, fashion and whatever else comes up. We are open to any creative work.

Our photography style is authentic, natural and alternative with a photojournalistic approach. Our mission is to surprise you and take you beyond traditional photography.

We are a husband and wife team, based in Cape Town, South Africa but we travel anywhere our photography takes us. Every year we spend a couple of months in Germany (that’s where Antonia is from) and the rest of Europe to shoot.

We {Desmond Louw and Antonia Heil} have been working together since 2009. We are two photographers with a simple idea: we want to make you happy with awesome pictures. We have high expectations for what we do. Our goal is that both you and us have fun.

 Magic happens when you bring like-minded people together.

Give us a shout ( Nice to meet you.

P.S. We speak English, German and Afrikaans.
