Louis de Jager Vorster (Freelance Photographer)


Louis de Jager Vorster
After receiving his National Diploma (Industrial Design) in Johannesburg in 1996, Louis moved to Cape Town where he received a Higher Diploma (Industrial Design) the following year. He taught part-time at the Cape Technikon for a couple of years before his design and visual communication background got him interested in multimedia design. After freelancing as a designer in the new medium for a year or two he took up a two year teaching post at the Dept. of Visual Arts & Design of the Vaal Triangle Technikon. This was where his interest in creating content for multimedia products led to the desire to become a professional photographer.

After honing his skills for two years and assisting top local and international photographers in Cape Town and Johannesburg he decided to pursue a career in photography.

Currently Louis is based in the Western-Cape after five years in Johannesburg, taking on a diversity of assignments from advertising to documentary photography, he has also been involved in a number of group exhibitions in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town.

Some of his most recent clients include: Saatchi & Saatchi, The Jupiter Drawing Room, FCB, The Salvation Army, Brainstorm magazine, food & home magazine, SL magazine, SAA, Business Connexion, Vodacom, K-Swiss, CISCO , Ghetto Ruff, The SPCA, Runner’s World(USA) and Urban Brew.

Recent work by Louis de Jager Vorster includes a cover portrait/article of Artist Belinda Blignaut for the second issue of Pangram, a new online art & culture rag. To check it out log onto

He also did some portraits for the March issue of Session magazine, some alternative portraits for friends Stef & Belinda and captured the day of his mothers funeral in an amazing unforgettable way. He’s always on top of his game with the camera handy to take a happy shot, as he did on their roadtrip. You can check out all of these on his blog
