Mark Booysen – Photographer

I am a Cape Town based photographer and nature enthusiast who simply loves Africa.

My genre covers Landscape, Avian and Wildlife photography and when not in the office you will find me behind my lens!

My passion drives me to get out of bed at insane hours as photographers always chase the light. It is therefore not surprising that I am often the first car in line waiting for the gates of National Park to open and the last to leave before they close.

There is nothing quite like the African Bush, the thrill of not knowing what lies around the next bend becomes obsessive and leaves me wanting more.

When I think of one thing that inspires me with photography is the opportunity to capture a “moment in time”! Few feelings in life are greater than capturing one of your “bucket list” images – it’s intoxicating!

National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen’s quote sums it up perfectly: “When the vision in your head becomes the lump in your throat, that’s photography!” 

My love for photography not only allows me to capture these special moments through my lens for everyone to enjoy but hopefully also to inspire people along the way to create memories of their own!
