I’m Gena D, a Johannesburg based photographer, but will happily travel within South Africa and abroad.
I specialise in wedding, portrait and lifestyle photography and very evidently, I LOVE all things photography – faces, expressions, emotion, light, shadow, moments (in fact, I’m a moment freak!).
I am inspired by the smallest or simplest of things – a smile, a look, pretty detail, colour, texture, lines, space, light, landscapes…
I’m addicted to capturing real moments, images that tell real stories…
I think photography all the time, and capture images in my mind wherever I go – occupational “hazard” I guess.
Capturing moments, making memories – is the vision from which I work – images that tell a story, capture real interactions, that recall a moment, share an emotion, make you smile, bring a twinkle to your eye. I don’t endeavour to capture perfectly posed images – life is not perfect, we live real, at times, crazy, lives – I aim to capture the real people, the happy faces, the expressions, the spontaneity, the personalities and the real moments.

And for those who want to know …. after spending 20 years in the corporate world, the last 15 of which were in a large international IT company, I left to take a “break”, only to end up following creative pursuits, starting with garden design and interior design& decor projects, and inadvertently moving into photography. It was the realisation, that I felt the most exhilarated when out capturing faces, things, moments, and watching people’s reactions to those images, that led to the start of Gena D Photography.
Thinking back, I have always had a camera of sorts with me, have always enjoyed snapping away – in fact, my first recollection of photography was when, at the age of 5, my father handed me his Kodak Brownie, which he had purchased to take the first baby pictures of me with!!! I just never thought that this would be something I’d love doing as a profession … so I guess, I’ve come full circle …. life is truly amazing!!!
