MEET DU WAYNE
“I have found that the most captivating of art forms is honesty. I view the world for what it is, not what it’s pretending to be, mesmerized by the beautiful brokenness that transmutes a mere moment into a memoir.” – Du Wayne Denton
I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. Growing up in a country filled with diversity of cultures and with such majestic landscapes, fills my inspiration to always seek something different in my photography work and my love for landscapes in my work. After my graphic designs studies I started my own photography work in 2005.
I met the love of my life in while I was sitting in my design class. She has been my rock and my biggest chearleader. Being a father of two beautiful children and husband to a wonderful wife have given me a deeper connection with people.
Travel is the fuel of my creativity. I have been privilege to have documented travel to 16 countries in the world and to document some beautiful destination weddings. From discovering hidden local gems in my neighbourhood to traveling to far away lands, I love any excuse to get out of the office on a regular basis. Cities, Deserts, Rainforest, Countryside, Islands, Coastlands.. you name it. Photography has given me the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and to learn about their cultures. The world is too small and there is only such little time to see it all.
