| Zanri Du Plooy |

I’m Zanri, a professional visual storyteller & chaser of light. I specialise in Product + Content photography. I'm based in Stellenbosch, South Africa, but due to the nature of my work I can shoot products from my the comfort of my home studio and let local + international clients just courier their products to me.


I started my business at the young age of seventeen with an entry level camera and just one lens. I was given the opportunity to work with some very talented who helped set the foundation for me. Fast track a few years, I went on to study my BA Degree in Visual Communication Design and graduated in 2018 at the Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography, where I majored in Art Direction. 

I have a Mediator personality type; I'm introverted, intuitive and all about feelings. Having this personality type it's not easy finding a career that satisfies you, and a corporate job definitely didn't make the cut. I needed a career that not only challenged my creativity, but also impacted people in a positive way, and that lastly made me feel like I had a purpose. In my starting years photographing, I never thought of photography being a career until I really saw how being apart of a wedding day had so much meaning.
