About me

Bruna Mentrup-Nortje  -  Wildlife Photographer


Taking a photograph is a creative process, as photographers we need to consider many influences that stem from the environment we find ourselves in at the time of capturing the image, to ensure that in the end it is the visual synopsis of the story been communicated.

My passion for imagery is driven by my wish to record the events and special instances in a manner that places the audience in that moment when the photograph was taken.

Whilst you browse through my website, I hope I am able to convey to you my deep passion for nature.  Capturing the soul and essence of both wildlife and landscapes, is a privilege for me and every time I press the shutter, it takes me one step closer to Mother Nature.  I work at keeping my photography diverse and interesting thus travelling to some remote destinations. I am always looking for the ‘road less travelled’ so endlessly seek horizons and places to visit. In Nature, one very seldom feels lonely – hours feel like minutes and days… like hours – good for the soul stuff.

Coupled with my underlying belief to do justice to wildlife photography, my work is now gaining rapid recognition around the country and is proudly displayed in prestigious lodges in Botswana and Namibia. Should you wish to update your images in your working place, Lodge, Home, Website, or, have the need to have Drone footage taken of your Establishment, please fell free to contact me directly on +27 82 809 1918 for a quotation.
