My name is René Maritz. I am a lifestyle photographer living in Cape Town, South Africa.  My family are such an ongoing support to me – thank you for your love and belief in me!

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 photography and blog,  Soul Sessions.

My work featured on DSTV – Voice SA and Kyknet, Sunday Times and some other local newspapers, as well as Cape Town Magazine. My photo of David Kramer was used for his brand new album, WAKKERSLAAP – this is truly the greatest honour and achievement for me!

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, namely Fanbase Music Magazine approached me to write for them on a month to month basis, which I consistently did, for 2 years. In 2014, I launched my official website. My clientele has been steadily growing and I am truly thankful for every opportunity that comes my way – I feel blest!

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 your specific needs. People, are my driving force; 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 and a part of your soul is captured and revealed.

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