Nitty gritty:

I’m a Cape Town based South African photographer.Julian Goldswain


I’ve been photographing professionally for leading local and international brands since 1998. Along the journey, I’ve imparted that passion to the next generation whilst teaching at Stellenbosch Academy of Design & Photography, School of Light, Vega, Cape Town School of Photography and City Varsity.
