image commissions and
Hi, and thank you for visiting my site. My name is Teagan and I am a freelance lodge photographer and travel photojournalist based in Cape Town. I create high-quality, travel-orientated photographic and written content about Africa and its islands.
Wilderness spaces and authentic journeys inspire me, and I’m fortunate to work with divine lodges and concessions that care about their people, conservation and environmental impact. I want my work to spread awareness of their stories and support marketing efforts. The photographs that I take are of the guest experience and of the staff involved in making that happen. I try to humanise the lodges that I visit, and showcase reality in a more refined, appealing way.
The resulting images can be used for websites, editorial publications, to create photo albums, for on-going social media updates and hung as artworks.
Ultimately, I want to encourage others to visit and experience it for themselves.
Born in Durban, I completed a BCOM in Marketing through UNISA and subsequently joined a commercial photographic company. I decided that travel was where I wanted to be involved, and luckily this decision coincided with a job opening at Getaway , South Africa’s oldest travel magazine. Over four years as the Photo Editor I photographed and wrote about off-the-grid campsites, pilgrimages, new adventures and upmarket lodges. Working here was challenging, formative, and a complete blessing.
One of my greatest joys are journeys through beautiful landscapes; the more remote the better. Multi-day hiking, 4x4 trips and horse riding? Yes please.
You'll find more about the latter at Cross the Lands, my website dedicated purely to horse travel around the world.
I’d love to hear from you and, bearing in mind I’m sometimes out of internet range, will get in touch as soon as I can.
