My lifelong passion for photography was the reason for me to quit my job and follow my dreams. Photography – to me – is the art of capturing special moments in life through my lens.
The art of photography is the ability to create images that stand out and have some type of special connection to the audience. Behind my lens I feel more like a carpenter than a photographer – constantly creating images to share the way I percieve the world. I love to photograph people due to the fact that every scenario is different and presents the ideal moment to create someting special.
I get inspired when I spend time on the road, traveling the world, and when I am in nature. I also find inspiration from various artists such as Ansel Adams with his impactful black and white landscapes, Paul Nicklen with his award winning National Geographic images, and Brassaï together with his very unique night scenes.
If anyone is looking for an excellent photographer, it is Monique. A beautiful person which makes a lot of effort, sometime too much such as laying completely flat in the sand to take the perfect photo for her clients. She loves detail and turns a photoshoot into a fun time. Well done, you're better than the best.
Oscars were given for a job well done, I’d nominate you! Thank you for the lovely photos, work well done , i wil recommend you to any family, wedding , kids bdays. You really have a eye to capture every special moment in you're work well done monique de beer.
Monique has an eye for colour and light that brings a vivid life to her work. The most obvious example is the recent Gordon's bay fire shots, however, it is evident in all of her shoots. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a lifestyle photographer.
This girl has serious passion for what she loves, we were very fortunate to win a free family shoot with Monique and yet she took her time with us , literally found every little spot she could to get the best shots. Kept us informed after the shoot and spoiled us with sneak peaks (those are the best) and within 3 days we had our family photos.
Cannot wait to frame these special moments ♡ Thank you Monique ♡
I was born in Johannesburg in 1991 and obtained a BSc Chemistry Degree, with an Honours in Medicinal Plant Sciences from the University of Pretoria. In 2016, I decided to follow my lifelong passion for photography.
