Welcome to Eugene’s Old Time Photo’s
We are based in George, in the heart of the garden route. We have been operational since 2010 and travel throughout South Africa to attend major shows and festivals.
Our highly rated, award winning old time portrait studio draws many customers from throughout south Africa and other countries from as far as the USA and Russia.
Visiting our protract studio is a fun-filled experience where families can have fun and take pictures in the old time costumes. It is like walking back in time to an era which has a long passed memory; everlasting memories are created within minutes. Great care is taken to produce images which are authentic looking compared to those which have been produced in previous centuries.
Upon arrival, you will be met by our assistants and photographer. Once you have selected a theme, our assistants will help to dress you in costumes of that time period. Howls and laughter can often be head coming from the studio as clients tease and laugh at each other while being dressed.

I am proudly South African and have a passion for our beautiful country, with its diverse population groups and their cultures. My aim is to capture special moments in a unique and lasting way. Nothing remakes constant in our daily lives. People grow older over time; families become larger or even smaller as the time passes. We gain new family members and sometimes we lose family members and loved ones.
Many of my clients return every year for a photo session, one can clearly see how the family changes as the time goes by. Children grow at a rapid rate.
I firmly believe those ones’ eyes are the window to your soul. There is a crucial aspect that I take into consideration when conducting photography, I travel to look past the props, costumes and various poses to focus on the eyes, thereby ensuring a perfect shot which captures the mood of the moment.
While the photo session is filled with fun, I strive for a portrait that reveals sadness in the eyes, as was the costumes a century and a half ago. I strive for perfection and find great joy in seeing people faces light up when they view their photo prints for the first time. I will not allow a photo print to leave the studio, unless I am 100% satisfied with it. Thank you for visiting our website. I hope to meet you personally in the near future to capture that special moment.
We travel the whole country and capture special moments at shows, expos and malls.
"Ek kyk vandag so na die foto's.. toe wou ek sommer net weereens dankie sê. Dit is baie spesiaal om so iets te hê... die foto's saam my Oupa is vir my só kosbaar!!!"
"Exceeded my greatest expectations, took my children back to the past with something unique, I would not have had. The kids LOVED the props."
