From the KZN Midlands to Ballito and beyond

Hello and welcome, my name is Colin Browne. I'm a wedding videographer and photographer based in Hillcrest, KZN. I've been doing videography and photography since 2006 and have been involved in over 300 weddings. I aim to capture all the priceless moments throughout the day in the most unobtrusive way. I record in HD across several cameras, with special emphasis on capturing  all the natural moments as the day unfolds.

Thomas & Nicole Wedding – Giants Castle

I always love shooting weddings in the KZN Drakensburg, partly because my family spent most of our holidays there when I was young, and also because it’s just so difficult to take a bad shot anywhere. I had a flash storm on my way up, it came down so hard plus I was on the…

Family photo shoots are very popular amongst holiday makers in the greater Durban area. I often do family photo shoots on the Umhlanga beach and surrounds as well as in Hillcrest at Summerveld. I aim to capture both portraits and fun photos with an emphasis on capturing the natural interaction between the family.

Ritson Family – Umhlanga Beach

The Umhlanga beach will always hold a special place in my heart, because my family and I used to go there when I was a child. This was before the big walkway and the pier, before all the development and before all the hotels had locked gates leading on to the beach. Not that I’m…
