My name is Izak Van Der Merwe, I am an Auckland based photographer with a love for the outdoors and connecting with people. My love for photography started with my parents and their love for the arts, sharing all their knowledge they have with me. Starting off shooting on my father's old Nikon FA camera I found my passion for the art of film photography. Shooting film for a couple years before finally getting a digital camera I got to experience both worlds of photography, finding how each medium has its place.

Through my craft my aim is to share with everyone the way I view the world. Hoping to show the incredible beauty of the landscapes around the world and the people that fill it. I enjoy sharing my experiences and knowledge that I have gained with anyone willing to listen, and even more open and willing to learn from others. My aim is to keep developing my style and to improve my craft to the best of my abilities.
