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.
Over 300 Weddings and Counting | KZN Midlands, Hillcrest, Durban, Ballito
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.
It was lovely meeting and spending a bit of time with Grant and Alex at The Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga. They were smiling from ear to ear throughout the photo shoot, which is totally understandable considering Grant had popped the big question only a few hours before. We explored all the corners of the…Read More
I was one of four official photographers at the ITU Telecom World 2018 conference and expo at the Durban ICC. Even though the event took place over three days, I was hired to shoot for six days because of all the pre-events and planning meetings. It was an intense couple of days when the main…Read More

Lee-Ann and her family came to Durban to visit her parents, and decided to have a family photo shoot to mark the occasion. Even though they were staying in Ballito they decided Summerveld would be a good spot for the shoot. It’s always so much easier doing photos for a family who don’t need encouragement…Read More
As I was editing Melchior and Tarryn’s wedding photos, my wife Ruth when walking past my computer screen said that Tarryn looks like an adorable little doll. I couldn’t agree more, these are two wonderfully kind souls who were perfectly made for each other. They had a wonderful winter wedding at Insingizi, with their nearest…Read More
