“Jantjie Cloete is absolutely without a doubt, one of the best photographers I have worked with. Not only professional, but both him and Tania makes you feel welcome from the minute you walk through the door. Their kindness combined with a beautiful studio will definitely create beautiful memories for you to keep and treasure long after your photo shoot. I would definitely recommend them to all clients, family and friends.”

“Stuck in the daily rut with its usual daily stresses, I forced myself to find a creative outlet and try something new. The great unknown, strangers and new challenges added to my stress. But my very first day of dressing up and posing as a model, I met Jantjie and his wife, Tania. WOW! What a team!

Jantjie, photographer: sharp eye, open-minded, talented, professional. Totally calmed my crazy nerves and laid my worries to rest. Dare I say, even gave me confidence with his calm, friendly professionalism.

Tania: creative, sensitive, friendly, becoming, muse.

Jantjie and his wife carried me through my first day of a huge personal challenge. I appreciated and enjoyed it so much that I continued my hobby, cultivated my love for creativity, developed more confidence, and continued to work with Jantjie on numerous occasions and experimental adventures thereafter, like (a highlight in my portfolio), a night-shoot at the Voortrekker Monument where we tackled a brand-new innovative style of photography. I would support, promote and recommend Jantjie Cloete any day, anywhere!

Jantjie has an impressively comfortable style, top-class professional attitude, amazingly creative flare, and an awesome stable support structure that strengthens his brand.
If it’s your first time, no matter your desired theme, try this dude first. If you’ve done it before and want to try something new, try this dude!
I am a proud supporter of JJ Cloete Photography!”

“Words alone cannot express our gratitude for what you did for us. As this was our 1st birthday shoot we had no idea at all. But due to your advice, patience, excellent service & creativity the day was a total bliss. We could not believe what you made of our special day. We felt at home and were provided with an excellent service. The images themselves had more than 1 000 likes on Facebook within hours of uploading them. For you it’s a service, but for us its eternal memories. Thank you for being a part of our lives and surely you will be our family photographer. We will recommend you to anyone anytime. Thank you once again for an excellent service, being humble & very accommodating.”

“A picture is worth a 1000 words and with Jantjie Cloete and his talent everyone of them is positive. As a model I have shot with a lot of photographers, and he is a cut above. It wasn’t just some of the best photos of my career that came out of the day, but the entire shoot. From the moment I walked in the door and was greeted by his beautiful and friendly wife who made me feel like I was totally at home. Jantjie put me at ease during the shoot and was able to get the best from me. His eye for detail, his skill, his patience and his experience made for an effortless shoot that was both fun and confidence inspiring. I may sound like I’m gushing, I am, but I could go on all day about how amazing this experience was and the near obsession I have with the photos. If you want the best photos that you can get, hire Jantjie, you will be happy you have.”
