California Galleries


Francois Swart


For me photography is all about light. The photographer that is skilled enough to use the available or controlled light to his advantage is the person who will capture the best image. I have developed the skills to adapt to light. Therefore in all my work you will find that all the detail that should be visible, that should transform your understanding of the subject. Re-creating beautiful light and finding it naturally takes a lot of skill and doesn't happen by accident in any contemporary photo.

Everybody states that they have a passion for their work and it becomes kind of a cliche. Failing another expression for this cliche, I must also state that I have a passion for photography. But not only that, I also have a passion for working with people and reflecting life. And that reflects in my work.
