Featured Contributor Johan Swanepoel


We're proud to announce that Johan Swanepoel is this month's Featured

Contributor. Hailing from South Africa with a background in engineering and

construction management, Swanepoel pursued his passion for photography as 

young man in the era of manual cameras and darkrooms.

We love his intimate wildlife photographs-powerful additions to the Veer library.

While he claims to value modern digital equipment and techniques, when asked if

he is a wildlife photography "purist" - Swanepoel says: 

"No, cropping, healing, cloning, composites, etc., are part of the tools in order to

create the image I have in mind. The final goal will mostly dictate the rules. When

looking casually at images, I rarely question the processes involved, but rather

appreciate the message or beauty of the subject."
