Photo Critic Shot of the Month: June 2015

The Photo Critic Shot of the Month goes to two photographers, Luke Brouwers with his photo “Trees in the Mist(Nature Category), and Marethe Grobler with her portrait “Old Soul Young Girl(People Category). Both photographers receive a discount of R600 for any photography courses with DPC. Their winning images will be automatically considered for the coveted Photo Critic Shot of the Year competition. 

They were not the only winners though since we decided to also include Ken Jennings’ impressionist landscape, “Gansbaai” as a wildcard entry for the Photo Critic Shot of the Year. Congratulations to all three of you! 


Registering for a photography course/workshop at DPC entitles you to free membership on our student network, Photo Critic. Members may upload up to two images per week for constructive critiques and join in other photography activities.

About the Author:

Danie Bester
I am the founder of DPC and Photo Critic. I am married to Jenna, my high-school sweetheart for over two decades now and have two adult children, Mia-Daniel and Minnette. We live in Centurion, Pretoria. I am proud, yet humbled by how far we have come and what we have achieved in such a short time. Today DPC ranks under the foremost photography schools in South Africa and we've build a healthy community of photographers. The road has not always been easy but through a leap of faith and the grace of God, we have grown a small photography business to a successful training institute. Working as a commercial photographer and teaching a wide range of photography subjects, including; Portraiture, Studio lighting, Fine-art, Architecture and Food Photography has kept me fairly versatile. On a personal level, I pursue fine-art, travel, and landscape photography. I have recently been honoured, with my work being included in the Collectors Guide to Art and Artists in South Africa.
