Something about myself…


I have been doing photography work for more than 10 years.

I am a passionate landscape and architectural photographer. I love doing landscape photography and I spend as much as possible time in the open looking for unique landscape and seascape photography opportunities. I regularly do photography work for lodges, hotels, companies, commercial and mining companies and I also do wedding photography on request etc.

“When we received all the photographs, we were blown away! The colours, contrasts and quality of your work are truly amazing and we could not be happier that we asked you to do the photos of our lodge.
In short, we would most definitely recommend Des Jacobs Photography to anyone.” Buhala Lodge – Malelane


Hi Des. Thanks for the photos. Our web designer is already working on adding them to the site, they are great and much appreciated. Regards. Kjell Bismeyer. Naledi Lodge.


Thank you for the superb photographs that you have taken. It was an absolute pleasure to see our workplace through the lens of a true professional. Excellent quality and outstanding service. We would most certainly make use of your services in the future.



We’re speechless! You have such a talent, especially with us. You did it the first time and you have done it again. You do more than just take photos, you capture emotions and moments in time. There are no words to thank you to you. You are a gem!

Hello Des, Just a quick note to say thank you very much for taking the photos on our wedding day. We were very, very happy with the shots. Thanks for the DVD as well…we’ve used it a lot to show our friends back in Australia what the day involved. We really couldn’t have asked for anything more and will certainly pass your details onto anyone looking for a photographer.

Thanks again Garren and Catie Australia
