Tilanie Grote


Family and Personal branding photographer Durban - I love taking beautiful photographs and specialise in family, personal branding and corporate photography. I pride myself that I can get my subjects to feel relaxed as quickly as possible, and then I work my magic in a no-fuss photoshoot. I prefer classic, clean images. I keep the shoots casual and relaxed and don't take myself too seriously.

Photography has been my passion for as long as I can remember, and in 2012 I decided to make it my official career. I truly love being creative, and my long-time hobbies have fostered this creativity – scrapbooking, in particular. It means I’m always on the hunt for stunning photographs.

I am married to fellow photographer Anthony Grote, who specialises in architectural and sports photography. We have one daughter and three dogs. We live in the coastal city of Durban, South Africa.

Family and Branding Photographer Durban

What I photograph...

I photograph families, children, pets, events, and parties as well as corporate photography (headshots, events, products, branding and lifestyle images.)

I particularly love to do personal branding shoots, helping entrepreneurs with portraying their true unique self through a variety of appropriate images used on their social media and website. The importance of updated professional images can not be emphasized enough.
