About Frances Peacock

I am Frances Peacock... with a surname like that I should be hard to forget.

I am a professional photographer, based in Cape Town. I do a range of shoots from family and baby shoots to weddings and corporate affairs. Recently I have been lucky enough to work with some great clients like Standard Bank, Vodacom, Standard Chartered and am the Cape Town based photographer for Kaelo Stories of Hope.

My most exciting shoot has been taking pictures of Sir Ranaulph Fiennes, the world’s greatest explorer, before he headed off to Antarctica to walk across it in the dead of winter.  He is a man with courage and craziness that shine through from the depths of his eyes.

I spent 10 months travelling from London to Cape Town in 2010 and 2011 and it was through this experience that I honed my love for capturing little moments through my lens. Each image I have from that trip will forever bring back the smell, sights and sounds of our astounding continent.

I believe that as a photographer you have a duty to your subjects to allow them to show their character through the reflection in your lens. It is for this reason that I try to keep my shoots natural, un-posed and relaxed. You will not find me putting you in front of a white background and saying cheese.

Enjoy my site and get in touch. I would love to capture moments in your life or of your event.
