Welcome to the online gallery of Gideon Fourie.
This site is a collection of some of my favourite photographs taken around the globe.
I can probably best described myself a photo enthusiast having been addicted to photography for more than 20 years
My earlier photographs were taken with a 35mm SLR Camera (it was a Minolta and I still have it well protected.) These earlier photographs are all still unedited, uncropped, un-photoshopped. In 2006 (it took a while) I made the jump to digital photography and also switched to Canon. My first digital camera was a Canon EOS 20D. I am now on the EOS 60D. I have also since discovered the versatility of the iPhone and pretty much everything on my Instagram feed is taken with my mobile phone. My first love remains my Canon SLR though.
Since I and my family love to travel the photographs on this website have literally been taken on 6 continents. If someone had asked me what my speciality is, I would have said architecture, but honestly, I shoot what I see. I hope you enjoy this collection as much as I do.
I was born in Pretoria, South Africa, and although living in South Africa most of my life, I am now based in Bad Homburg just outside Frankfurt am Main, Germany (although, and I need to stress this, I remain African at heart.)
Photography is my passion and I look forward to sharing it with you.
