DLPHOTO started in Cape Town as a Photography School in 2009, offering a casual and comprehensive approach to the discipline. Our goal has been to help people find the rewards of photography as a lifestyle and profession. Our aim is to make photography accessible to all. With a practical and conversational approach, with all cameras and gear supplied, we make it easy to start learning. DLPHOTO is dedicated in helping a new generation of photographers discover their skill and passion.

DLPHOTO soon diversified, providing a one stop shop to education and training, as well as providing professional photography services.

In 2015, DLPHOTO introduced the studio, a fully functional professional space for rental, equipped with top end lighting for both stills and video clients alike and packages to meet the requirements of all our clients, photographers and videographers alike utilising this space. As an additional service, we provide on hand assistance with your lighting set ups to ensure goals are met.

In 2023, DLPHOTO introduced optional Photography, half and full day tours, realising the potential in sharing great visual landscapes and immersive experiences to local and international visitors alike. Making new friends in pleasant and picturesque environments is something we have only dreamt about… now a reality.

Our mission has not changed, and will always remain, to be there for the needs of everyone.
