Photography has always been a part of Nathalie’s life. Her father was passionate about photography and he gave her her first camera when she was seven. She has been taking pictures ever since and has been working as a professional photographer starting in 2006.

Nathalie specializes in corporate events, portraiture and lifestyle photography and is passionate about teaching and community-building. As the founder of the Tame Your Fujifilm workshop series designed for new users of the FUJIFILM system, she offers one-on-one tuition for photographers wanting to master their craft.

She runs her own YouTube channel where she talks about a variety of photography-related topics in the live broadcast series “Photo Chats with Nats”. She is also the co-founder of SOOC.Live – a creators’ community and collaboration between her and Fuji X-Weekly. During the monthly live broadcasts they take a first-hand deep dive into the exciting world of using custom film simulation recipes that help to achieve gorgeous results straight-out-of-camera.​​​​​​​

Nathalie is based in Johannesburg, South Africa and is the first woman to be appointed as an X-Photographer in Africa.
