Hetty Zantman - Photographer


I'm a commercial, corporate, lifestyle and travel photographer based in Cape Town. I started my photographic career as a photojournalist in 1984 working for newspapers, news agencies and magazines. I currently work with international and local clients doing both editorial and corporate work. My portfolio ranges from celebrity portraits and annual reports, to stills for TV commercials. I also love shooting food and will gladly sport a safety helmet on industrial sites. I have images in galleries in the USA and France and in private collections in South Africa.

I bring to my work a keen aesthetic eye, great attention to detail, flexibility and a large dose of passion.

When not on location you will find me on the beach or hiking Table Mountain.

I'm available to travel anywhere.

"Photography dwells in the strange dimension between fact and fiction. I live happily and insanely immersed in both. I feel an unrelenting need to connect with beauty, and weird, imperfect things everywhere, and still believe in the inherent goodness in our world." Hetty Zantman
