My name is René Maritz. I am a lifestyle photographer living in Cape Town, South Africa.  I have a passion for photography and love building relationships with people. My love for photography began six years ago. I started going to shows,  taking photos of musicians and telling their story through my blog,  Soul Sessions S.A.

My work featured on DSTV, Sunday Times and some other local newspapers, as well as Cape Town Magazine. A thought came to me back then, if I combine my love of telling stories with my photography, I could really capture the essence of  my passion. An online music magazine approached me a couple of years back, to write for them on a month to month basis, which I consistently did, for 2 years. There after, in 2014, I launched my official website.

If you would like to hire me, for any photographic job,  review, or story,  please contact me. I would love to meet over a cuppa and chat about what your specific needs are. People, are my driving force, and I love to capture those special moments in time, thereby creating memories to last a lifetime. For me, photography and writing is a form of art.

Thank you for reading about my journey…one that continues with great excitement and fulfillment!
