I am a full time photographer based in South Africa. I studied BA Visual Communication with photography as my major.
I started Marsel Roothman Photography in the beginning of 2013
and I simply love my job!

I splurge my talent onto food & interior photography (my obsession), lifestyle portraiture, weddings, couples, corporate and commercial photography.

2015 MARSEL ROOTHMAN PHOTOGRAPHY   |   hello@marselroothman.co.za

I am a lifestyle, editorial, portrait & wedding photographer living in South Africa. I love photographing pretty things with a minimalistic & editorial approach.

A few of my favorite things to photograph are food, décor, details & portraits.


I studied BA Visual Communication with photography as my major at The Open Window for three years and have assisted & worked with many editorial & commercial photographers in the industry, currently still working with photographers Leana Clunies Ross and DOOK whenever I have the time. It has been a very exciting journey so far I am so excited for everything still to come.


My free time is invested into Johannesburg City Blog, a blog my friend and I started early 2013. I am also part of the contributors’ team for an online magazine called The Pretty Blog where I get to photograph all sorts of pretty things and places. Furthermore, my work has been published in magazines like Taste, De Kat, Platteland & Lééf Magazine.

I want to travel the world with my work, own a charming little eatery, photograph a cookbook, take a pottery course and publish a book. Which ever comes first.
