a little about me

My philosophy is to partner with my client in the thinking behind the requirement of the image and then to shoot it perfectly.

My name is Johnny de Gouveia, I was born in Johannesburg South Africa. I have over 30 years of photographic experience from assisting various South African and international photographers on advertising, editorial, and commercial shoots both in studio and on location including Michael Knight, Des Kleineibst, and Massimo Cecconi amongst others, working in South Africa, the UK, and Portugal from 1988 to 1991.

I returned back to South Africa in 1992 and started my freelance photography business. Through the years I have gained several prestigious clients including DHL, Nando’s, FNB, ABSA, Nedbank, Coca Cola, Peermont Group, Cosmopolitan, Habitat, Nestle, Sun International, and The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund amongst others.

In 2014 I began a degree in fine arts and in the process began working with M studio community. Through them I have participated in various group shows and had my first solo exhibition ‘CANdour’ in October 2016.

In 2017 I also featured at the group show of The Firehouse Inaugural Art Exhibition, and Participated at the FNB Art Fair. 2018 participation in a group show ‘talking To Deaf Ears’ at the ABSA Gallery in conjunction with August House Artists, and featured at the FNB Art Fair.

My philosophy is to partner with my client in the thinking behind the requirement of the image and then to shoot it perfectly.
