A beautiful boudoir shoot, makes for a great gift – either for yourself or something it’s commonly used for: the groom-to-be’s wedding gift. The bride-to-be comes through either to the Loci Studio in Pretoria for a moody look to their images, or the boudoir shoot can be done on location at the client’s home, a guesthouse or venue of choice. Boudoir photography is usually done with beautiful pieces of lingerie, underwear and even sleepwear. For those not so comfortable with the process, help with posing and general guidance throughout the whole shoot, will make you feel flattered and comfortable in the knowledge that you are in capable, professional hands. A stunning printed book makes for the ultimate gift and keepsake after your shoot.


Fitness photography shoots make for fun times, done either on location at the client’s gym, or at the Loci Studio. Fitness shoots are usually done for clients who follow strict eating- and training regimes, and many times, right before competitions they look their ultimate best, and would like that captured professionally. With well-lit setups that show off good lines and curves, the Loci Photography fitness shoot product is of very high quality, and done in such a way to make sure the client’s body, muscles and shape is shown off well. Fitness photography shoots are mainly done in Pretoria as that is where the studio is based, still – I get to work all over and Gauteng is a wonderful stomping ground.


Being a family photographer in Pretoria, makes for meeting the most amazing families. People who let you be a part of their unit, in a memorable and visual way. Working all over Gauteng, even as far as Rustenburg, Middelburg and Vereeniging, means that Pretoria and Johannesburg aren’t the only client base I service. Family shoots can be done both on-location as well as in studio, it always depends on the family’s style and ultimately, if perhaps they would like for it to be printed. Children, babies – all family matters, and doing fun family shoots, and building connections, makes for Loci’s success.

The maternity shoot is a special shoot to celebrate a very special addition to any family. The Loci Studio does most of its shoots in the studio, and the maternity shoot can have a moody- and emotional look and feel in the studio where we showcase the arrival of your bump, and soon to be baby. The Pretoria studio is equipped with some special garments from the Nicolassi range, also owned, designed and created by Loci Photography photographer Yolandi Jacobsz – making sure the maternity shoot done the Loci Photography way, is a superb quality product for a very special time in a mother-to-be’s life. Shoots in the studio are either for just mommy, or with a partner and any other children, or we can opt for a stunning location maternity shoot as well.  Not too long after the maternity shoot we’ll welcome the beautiful newborn shoot in studio, still staying true to Loci Photography’s moody, modern style.


Most new models start of with a good test shoot and portfolio. Existing models usually need fresh images, often for their test book and their online portfolio through their agency, and it’s good to get new experience and a new set of images done from time to time. Portfolio images can be done either in studio, or on location for a new look and environment. With a professional photographer, you get help with posing, and that guidance gives you amazing experience for future reference. Music album covers, book covers or shots done for something more specific such as for chefs or any sort of entrepreneurs, are also welcome and done either in studio or on location, whatever suits the brief.


Matric dances are a special moment to capture and a wonderful event- and moment in a young student’s life, and it marks both the end- and the beginning of eras. It’s an exciting evening where they get to dress up for an unforgettable event. The matric dance shoot is usually done later in the afternoon to utilize the best light during the most romantic time of day, and I have been privileged to do matric dance photoshoots for couples all over Gauteng. Especially because it’s the end of a school career, we make sure that there is a special product we capture, especially this evening and its exciting prospect. Matric dance photos usually includes some with a few family members too, and if we’re able to get a lovely venue to shoot at, the late afternoon light makes for a lovely, magical backdrop for a gorgeous and special end-result


The corporate image photoshoot should always be professional and well lit, so that the image and end-product is a great representation of a very professional person, business person, political leader, CEO’s, etc. Loci Photography had been able to serve corporate clients for many years already and some of it’s most well-known clients include Sanlam, FNB, Samancor, Bowman Gilfillan, the Presidency and various other smaller enterprises for a variety of product; event and headshot services.

Help with posing is always provided, and some standard editing to make sure the product is of highest quality is done as part of your paid service, making sure your best corporate foot is put forward.
