About David Papenfus

Growing up in the scenic surroundings of Pietermaritzburg, I took an interest in cameras long before my parents could teach me to understand the cost of film and processing. Since then, photography has been listed high up on my long list of hobbies & interests, and I have never looked back.

After studying Science at the University of Stellenbosch, my curiosity took me to London where I eventually found myself climbing the corporate ladder, pushing myself up in the world of Investment Banking IT. My career also took me to New York, Zurich & home again, whilst time away from work allowed me to practice being a professional photographer in some of the most amazing parts of the world. Interesting and less frequented remote parts of the world were always my first choice travel destinations, and my camera remained my most important travel companion.

During my most recent banking stint in Switzerland, I began to get a better idea of what I was after as an individual. This is where I began to spend my time studying & expanding on my photographic skills and talent, whilst returning to the country I call home. Now I’m living a life where I do what I love, bringing out the beauty of your special events and producing a set of memories which you can keep forever.

I enjoy a multitude of photographic genreā€™s, most of which are highlighted in this page. I’m an also an experienced wedding photographer, and have enjoyed being part of celebrations around the world. Please click here to see more of my work

Cheers for now & go well.
