Desmond Louw is a location and automotive photographer in Cape Town, South Africa and in Berlin, Germany. He collaborates with Antonia Heil as dna photographers.

Desmond has been doing photography for 14 years. He started out shooting skateboarding for Blunt Magazine and spent hours and days getting lost in the darkroom.

Today Desmond’s focus and passion is automotive photography. He believes a good car photographer needs to be creative and technically brilliant, needs to understand artificial and natural light and have a passion for car design.

When Desmond is not shooting, he’s downhill mountainbiking, skateboarding, kiteboarding and hanging out with his wife and dog Piccolo in Cape Town or Berlin.
