Limephoto is a collaboration of skilled photographers, ensuring that we are able to create dynamic eye-catching imagery for you, wherever you need it photographed. We have created images for a diverse range of clients from medical to logistics to agricultural and transport. We have been called on to photograph artists, politicians, CEOs and performers. Cars, trucks and horses have also been part of client briefs.

Another long-term collaboration. We have been essentially embedded in the Cane and Rural Development unit at Tongaat Huletts since 2012 and have been documenting the rural agricultural development of the Zululand area in relation to sugar cane and food security.


The Mayeyi

The Caprivi

Emil von Maltitz's first project, and one dear to his heart; the Mayeyi are the Namibian counterparts to the well known Mokoro polers - a Botswanan people living within the Okavango Delta and its panhandle. Emil spent time living with the community while researching for a Master's thesis. The images here are part of his time spent living in the Caprivi.


Protec Voices

Kwazulu-Natal Province

We have recently been involved in a fine art project with the education intervention group, Protec. Limephoto was called on to create eye-catching and artistic images of some of the people who are involved and benefitted from the incredible work that Protec does. This was a project that was a pleasure and a privelage to be a part of.

Thoughts that inspire us

In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality

You don't take a photograph, you make it.

Great Photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field
