Hey Gorgeous!

Keen to shine on camera and make it count?

I’m Naomi and I’m here to help, as a pro photographer, videographer, trainer and multiple SA Best Photographic Blog winner, blessed with some wonderful media features too.

What you'd never guess at first glance:

I'm an identical twin, born 10 minutes after my sister
Her name is Ruth. We have the same laugh and I love her to bits. There's one distinct physical difference between us. I have a severe squint and she doesn't. You won't notice this now as I wear contact lenses and have learnt to control it, but it's why I didn't keep a single photo of myself before I turned 25, and why I'm passionate about my work!
I met my ex-pro superbike racer husband Dave at gym
Incidentally, that was never going to happen. I figured all that guys did there was check out your body and fancy you for the wrong reasons. Never say never! We've been very happily married since 1995 and he's played a major part in helping me to accept my squint. He says it makes me that much more human and lovable. Bless his beautiful soul.
We've had great adventures in this awesome world of ours
. . . such as scuba diving with sharks, manta rays and a leatherback turtle that Dave saved, camping with lions, leopards and an elephant that bumped our tent in the night, bungee jumping, snow skiing and motorbike riding (at pace!). Dave is so heart racingly comfortable living on the edge that I'm constantly reminded to appreciate our love.
Our studio is based at Devonbosch, between Stellenbosch and Cape Town, where we provide photo and video shoots amid breath-taking natural beauty!
Yes, I’m Sagittarian

Given all of that outdoor adventure, you may have guessed. Dave is Aquarian. We co-founded our company Outdoor Video & Photographic in January 2001 and are proud that our website has been voted SA Best Photographic Blog, as well as runner up twice (before I turned my attention to this website and won the award again). We’re grateful for all our leading corporate and commercial clients and that we share 40 years of valuable experience working in the corporate world.

My passion comes from pain

As mentioned above, I have a squint, which caused me to hate the camera until completely transforming my relationship with it, through personally experiencing the power of truly shining in photos and videos, and helping so many others do the same. This led me to create my online BRAND STARS ACADEMY. If you’re a visionary woman with a message to share, who is the face of your brand . . . and would love to be the STAR of your brand, then follow that link to find out all about it.

I have a magical muse

I’m blessed with grown up step-children, Michael and Terri-Lee, who has been my primary muse. My business began as a result of wanting to bless her with an understanding of how beautiful she is, by booking a photo shoot for her in 2003. That inspired us to play in the studio we’d just built, and I followed up with advanced photographic training then launched the studio side of our business.

How can I help you?

Photographing and filming people has completely transformed my life and my relationship with the camera. Now I use this amazing gift to help others share the best of who they are and what they offer with the world. I’d love to do the same for you! Take a look at how you can Work With Me and be in touch if this resonates with you. In case you’re sitting on the fence, consider how powerfully sharing your message visually can impact your life. As an example, I won a scholarship to Marie Forleo’s phenomenal B-School program, after submitting my 90 second entry video.

Your time to shine!

The world is your oyster once you claim your power and show up fully in your photos and videos. My online course can help you do this wherever you are. I also offer photo and video shoots around Stellenbosch and Cape Town and my blog shares plenty of insight and tips, so follow that link to browse around.
