Eugene Naude Photography is a Family and Lifestyle Photographer.
I am an accredited member of the South African Professional Photographers.
Photography is an art form that requires not only skill but also passion. I am involved with young photographers that learn from me. Some of them have tremendous skill and technical knowledge but lack the passion. Others have the passion but still require the necessary skill. Skill can always be acquired by studies and experience but a passion for the visual is compulsory. I always say: “There is no substitute for passion”
Photography and people have always been my passion. Whether it is a wedding or a studio shoot. If a moment is captured, it becomes a memory. Interaction is fun. I have the ability to create a special moment with humor and fun.
I have been a photographer as long as I can remember. From my early childhood I have seen everything in images. Whether it is a special moment captured or a nature scene, the visual always made more sense. “A picture is worth a thousand words”
Painting with light became a passion when I got my first film SLR camera; a Pentax K1000. Each picture was carefully planned because of the film and development costs. In those days there were not any auto focus and automatic (idiot mode) settings to make photography easy. Trail and error was an expensive hobby. This was the perfect way to learn photography.
Eugene Naude Photography make use of Nikon’s very advanced i-TTL technology. Although still shooting in manual, photography is so much more user friendly. Now I can shoot an action shot at 11 frames a second and delete 99% to get that “perfect image”.

Architectural Photography is an art that is not mastered by all professional photographers. Architectural photography requires a certain “creative eye”. I also requires specialized photographic equipment; camera bodies with a very high resolution and wide lenses with large apertures.
Many of the pictures seen on bill boards and magazines are taken in that “golden 10 minutes” after the sun set. The twilight is best time to take these type of pictures.
Developers often ask for corporate pictures of their building that is used for marketing brochures and websites. The photographer must make certain that the perspective of the building stays the same on the picture as seen with the naked eye. Wide lenses tend to warp the perspective and create a visual illusion that the building is “lying backwards”.
As seen in this picture below the composition was made to enhance the visual. It also was taken at exactly the right moment. The sky still shows the deep blue and the lights of the building show the it is already night time. This picture was taken with only ambient light. With a structure this big it is not possible to use any lighting equipment like flashes or studio lights.
Interior photography is also an art. Space is limited. Interior architectural photography can also be performed with ambient light transmitted through windows and skylights, as well as interior lighting fixtures. Slow shutter speeds and tripods are always used to make the pictures as sharp as possible.
Different architects have different design styles. As a experienced architectural photographer I can immediately recognize a certain architect’s work. Some architects have a unique ability to utilize small spaces to their advantage and make it pleasing to the eye but also effective and practical. There is always a fine line between the esthetical and practical. Not all esthetical beautiful spaces are practical.
Pretoria Wedding Photographer
Wedding Photography forms an integral part of any wedding. Every girl dreams about her wedding pictures from the day that she is born. Some girls even cut out pictures from magazines to make their own dream journals. Some brides come with definite requests of what type of wedding photography she requires. The many years as a wedding photographer taught me to listen carefully what the bride wants. That made me a successful wedding photographer, giving the wedding couple exactly what they ask for. Every photographer has his own style of wedding photography. That is main reason why the wedding couple made their initial choice. Wedding Photography doesn’t only consist of the technical skill of the photographer. A great part of the success of a wedding photographer consists of his interpersonal skills. On the wedding day the wedding photographer spends more time with the bride than the groom. How does he make the bride feel? Does he increase her stress level or does make her at ease. Remember that pictures don’t lie. You can see exactly in what state of mind the bride is. A nervous and forced smile can me seen on a mile. My excellence does not only consists of the brilliant way I capture every special moment of the wedding day, but the way I make the bride to be her best “self”.
