About Basie Van Zyl

My passion for Nature with her raw beauty and fine tuned order drive me forward on my quest to capture special moments in nature.
Moments sometimes seldom or never to be seen again.
My drive is only nature's story, carefully and artistically crafted, telling it to those who choose to listen. I've been creative since a young age but just never realized it or had the opportunity to explore & experiment with it.
In 2007 I bought the best photographic equipment and software available and my journey started.
I studied photography and digital art intensely to acquire these skills as I already had the part you cannot buy. I compete against myself and know Nature's codes and patterns within it. Prediction and proper planning is everything.
My photography and art is my love & passion, my free time I give to Mother Nature to reveal, the journey has just begun.
