About

Magnetic Photography is a full service photographic studio situated in Knysna, at the heart of the Garden Route. We offer personal, streamlined photographic and printing services to our clients. We aim to create an experience that’s fun and relaxed for everyone involved. A good photograph should capture something of who you are, smiles should be real and pictures should be natural, even if they are taken in studio.

The Team


Marissa

I qualified at the Stellenbosch Academy of Graphic Design and Photography in 2004, and have been taking photographs full time ever since.

I love the personal element of photography and always try to capture that little sparkle that reminds a mother of who her child really is; captures the essence of a relationship or the spirit of a place.

I strive to create the “wow” factor with my photos that brings people back again and again.

My end goal is amazed and happy customers, which is why I don’t have a favourite genre of photography. Whether I am photographing children at school, families in the studio or taking pictures of your home, you should walk away with something of value and a smile on your face.

Savannah

Savannah joined the team in 2016 as a creative and administrative assistant. She has a keen eye for photography and photo editing.

She can take professional photographs, is proficient in photoshop and knows all the other little tricks of the trade. She is dedicated, talented and an asset to the team.

Please know that if you are dealing with Savannah you are in very capable hands.
