Personal Passionate Professional
I am Stephen Cruickshank, owner and chief photographer of StephenC Photography.
I live in Noordhoek, a semi rural suburb of Cape Town, South Africa with my wife and two daughters. There are also two hamsters, a dog and some goldfish who make up the rest of the family.
I have been taking photos since 1984 and have been a professional for more than 11 years. I am passionate about making images and passionate about Cape Town and South Africa and all that this great country has to offer.
I am an internationally acclaimed photographer having shot on locations as diverse as New York, Zanzibar, Greece, Dubai Mauritius and in June 2013 I will be travelling to Paris for a 3 week shoot. My clients include top corporate multinationals and this 3 week assignment to a Paris will have me me photographing close to 4000 European delegates over the 3 week period.
As a professional, I am always extremely focused and prepared. My years of experience allows me to anticipate what is going to happen next helping me to capture those unique moments.
I like to believe I have an unassuming, calming nature which helps bring out the best when I am photographing people and groups in all situations. I have a number of years experience of working in the sme/corporate environment which has given me the familiarity and understanding of the demands, and time constraints, prevalent in the business world. Event photography goes far beyond just pointing a camera at a subject and I use this corporate experience to good use by offering a professional and efficient service to all clients.
My “A” list of commercial clients include:
Sony International (Fifa World Cup Finals), MTN, Grand West Casino, National Geographic Magazine (Sony advertisement), Top Billing Magazine, Hospitality Affairs, RMB, The Blue Train, Shakira (2010 FIFA World Cup Finals), Gerry Ranseli, Timamoon Lodge, Liberty Health, McKinsey & Co., Seven Oaks Winery, Tarsus Technologies, The Channel Magazine, Comztek, PetroSA, Nina Monda PR, Publicity and Events
I enjoy building long lasting relationships with all my clients – my greatest compliments are appreciated when I received referrals and repeat business.
Please accept my invitation for a chat and a cup of coffee to discuss your photographic needs. I look forward to meeting you.
