Videographer and Photographer | Brands, Companies and Individuals
Hello and welcome, my name is Colin Browne. I'm a videographer and photographer based in Hillcrest, Durban, KZN. Since 2000 I've been involved in hundreds of weddings, events, corporate and advertising shoots for clients all over the world. I've had everyone in front of my lens from world leaders to factory labourers.
Before I was a photographer I worked as a graphic designer at an advertising agency. I created printed and digital content for both local and international brands, and have recently completed a stint as a freelance designer for Barrows Global (UK) where I worked on brands such as Budweiser and Essity. Back home in South Africa I developed an intranet portal for Massmart and designed websites for many small to medium sizes businesses.
A particular interest of mine is motion design and animation, which I often use for social media advertising and websites.
Photography and video for brands and companies including marketing photos, headshots, explainer videos, social media content and more.
I've been the official photographer at corporate events ranging from thousands of people at the Durban ICC to small boardroom meetings.
I do photography and videos for hotels, lodges, B&B's, real estate, conference and wedding venues all over KZN.
I've photographed hundreds of families and couples on location at the beach and in the countryside.
From engagement shoots on the beach at sunrise through to proposals at the park, I've captured it all through my lens.
I've shot over 300 weddings at venues across South Africa, from sprawling weddings of over 1500 people to intimate elopements.

When I started doing wedding photography I never could have imagined that it was going to take off as much as it did. It's over a decade later and I'm still going strong. Weddings have taken me throughout South Africa, having shot at stunning venues like Babylonstoren in the Western Cape, Memoire in Gauteng as well as hundreds of venues throughout Kwazulu-Natal.
I've been privileged to get a glimpse into so many peoples lives and see them at their happiest and most vulnerable. Witnessing and capturing priceless moments never gets old, and many years of experience has conditioned me to anticipate all those priceless moments in advance.
Keryn wanted a photo shoot with her parents before they emigrated to the UK, so she called me up and we made arrangements. It was bitter sweet for her and family because their triplets have grown up with their grandparents nearby, but at the same time she understood that a better life awaits them across…Read More

Here is the photo shoot I did for Daleen Roodt for her website. She has a wonderful designated area in her house for her art with her easel, paints, bookshelves and other work surfaces. I took the main shot through the divider that separates her area from the rest of the lounge.Read More
