About The Artist: Eugene Venter

My name is Eugene, flower & nature photographer from South Africa, currently living in Pretoria with my fiancée, our twins (a boy & girl) and our rescue dog, Gypsy.

I'm mainly a self-taught photographer. It's only later in my career that I could afford to complete a diploma in photography.


In my pursuit of a photographic career and dreaming of becoming a full time photographer, I’ve done it all, just about.
Like most photographers new to the craft I started with Wedding Photography.
I photographed events and concerts, actors and Opera singers, models and bodybuilders and a DJ or two.
Head shots, product shots and a photograph for a billboard, a CD and a book cover too.
A few photographs were published in magazines and newspapers and even a nude calendar.
I also photographed dogs. My last gig was as a pet photographer, specializing in dog photography.

My passion has always been nature and still life photography and in 2019 I decided to slow down the photographic race I was trying to run and also needed to reconnect with Mother Nature.

I've always loved nature and worshipped the Earth Mother but seems I've lost the connection to Her.
By photographing her gifts I seek to find my path back to the Goddess once again.

Photographing mostly flowers and the natural world around me, celebrating Mother Nature and Her cycles, her fragile & fierce nature and sharing her beauty through fine art photography, I try to show that we are all connected... to each other... to nature... to Her.

Photographing nature and creating beautiful art for home or office walls, bringing the beauty of the Mother Goddess to any home.
