Marcus Jooste

In a few words I would consider myself a creative macro and amateur landscape photographer.
I was born and raised on a farm in Zimbabwe and from and early age developed an interest in nature, particularly butterflies and insects. It was in 2013 that I was inspired to pursue photography more seriously.
My macro photography is primarily of insects, spiders and snails. I make use of a variety of lenses, lighting set ups, props and mini sets (both in the field and indoors) to bring my creative vision to life.
I currently live in Cape Town and travel throughout Southern Africa for business, I own a commercial refrigeration company called Coldex.
My camera is always close to me, I strive to see the beauty around me and to tell a story through my images.
