TROMPIE VAN DER BERG
Hi its’ great to meet you. I am so glad you found your way here and are enjoying the eyecandy on my site! Here are a few things about me!
My name is Trompie Van der Berg and I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Gauteng, South Africa. Being an avid sportsman for most of my life I did not give much thought to the creative arts, but photography came and found me! I bought my first camera to impress a photographer girl I was courting at the time and something that started out as a “chat-up prop” grew into a lifelong obsession which also allow me to pay the bills!
My photography style has a fashion edge and I specialize in using on-location lighting which gives my work that magazine look. It is a skill not many photographers possess and it allows me to capture colorful, three dimensional images that is not otherwise possible with using just natural light. It also allows me to create near perfect light in the worst conditions and makes you look good! Apart from my photography skills I have a true talent for connecting with people and making you feel comfortable in front of my lens. Most of us do not come from a modeling background so it is up to me to get you looking and feeling like a million dollars!
My other passion which involves photography is teaching. I am a part-time tutor at one of the largest photography schools in the country and yes you guessed it, I specialize in lighting and wedding photography.
Enough about me from me, I believe that my previous clients are the true and impartial voices that really matter. Be sure to have a look at the testimonial page. Hope to hear from you soon!
