About the photographer/author:

Paul Bruins Photography

Paul Bruins is a Cape Town-based professional photographer, whose interest in photography was sparked off at an early age while completing a school project to build a pin-hole camera and to develop and print the results in a homemade darkroom.

Although he studied and qualified as a civil engineer in the early 1980s, he never went far without a camera of some sort. From cheap disposables to 35 mm-SLRs, and then to medium format, he has experimented with a large range of equipment and styles. Despite having a considerable amount of studio experience shooting portraits, still-life and close-up macro images, my love of nature and the outdoors saw me moving towards and specialising in architectural and fine-art landscape photography.

For the past ten years, he has taken great pleasure in exploring and photographing every corner of his home town and province. For him there is no better feeling than discovering another beautiful location, waking up and getting out before the first light of dawn, and then being ready and in position to capture a compelling composition in the best possible light. The thrill of pressing the camera’s shutter when all the conditions are absolutely perfect is something that is very difficult for me to describe in words. These are the moments that make me feel completely alive.

When it comes to photography, Paul says that he is a perfectionist. He is extremely critical of his own images, and is always acutely aware when he has captured a scene in a less-than-perfect way. His personal goal is to continue to improve his techniques with every photograph he takes, and he will return to the same location again and again, until he is completely certain that all the elements have worked in his favour, and that he has produced an image that cannot be improved upon.

His primary motivation for photographing beautiful landscapes is to share his emotions, experiences, locations and techniques with other like-minded photographers. This passion for finding and capturing the most picturesque locations and for sharing his photographic experiences has prompted him to organise and host a number of photographic exhibitions, workshops and tours, both locally and internationally. His images have won numerous competitions and awards, and have been published on calendars, in magazines and as book covers. He will continue to sell his work through fine-art photography websites and as stock images to international libraries such as Getty Images.

His favourite quote is one from Art Buchwald – “The best things in life aren’t things”.
