My name is Hannes van Eeden. I’m a photographer currently living in Cape Town, South Africa.

I tell stories with my camera.

What is an Ambivert? It is a person who has a balance of extravert and introvert features in their personality.

My goal is to break down the complexity of photography and share everything I know and learn along the way, and most importantly, to inspire your creative journey through words, photos and films.

I live my life by Seeking Discomfort.

My anthem is High on Life.

I believe in enjoying the small things.

I live to inspire.

“The best camera for photography is the one you have with you.”

“Start every day with a smile. When you smile, for me, it represents gratitude. It represents that I’m alive. I celebrate the fact that I’m alive. You know, what a concept to celebrate the fact that you have another day of your life which is the greatest gift you can ask for.

Another day to create whatever it is you want.

Another day to pursue your goals, your dreams.

Another day to experience life to the fullest and to experience all the gifts and joys life has to offer.”

Become the best version of yourself. Be kind. Spread the love.

  1. What a beautiful blog! I love your desire to bring happiness, hope and appreciation of beauty with your photography.
    Before I read your explanation of ‘ambivert’ I had made the guess -‘seeing the green on both sides – rather than thinking the grass was always greener, more verdant, elsewhere’


  2. Ha. I always told my kids the secret to life was to stay slightly out of their comfort zone all the time. A step out. And I would consider myself an ambivert. Never heard that before. Nice photos; my daughter is a photographer.


  3. Dear Hannes

    You’re a beacon of hope. Your photography captures your beautiful eye for the most exquisite of beauties in the world. Most visionary.

    Thank you for sharing your visions and your love for the world with us.

    Wishing you all that you touch turns gold.

  4. The more I learn about you and you share your gift of art, the more excited I get and inspired I get to share my streams of consciousness with the world! If we all took what we have been blessed with and shared it with humanity, this world would be as God intended! “To those that have been given, much is expected”!


  5. Very inspired to see your thoughts and resources in your site, I am still on the process of correcting my eye’s vision that I lost due to wearing glasses on an on. Best of wishes for you and for all of your family members.
