Deon & Sonja Photography was born from my love of photography and getting together with Sonja

Late in 2010 I started shooting motorsport professionally as a registered media photographer with MSA. During 2011 I was involved in an incredible motorsport accident and was out of photography and work in general for 6 months. My return to motorsport photography was short-lived as the injuries I had sustained prevented me from doing what I loved.


My trusty camera, which survived the accident, mostly collected dust for a few years. Until that fateful day that Sonja entered my life in 2016. She had previously had some involvement with small productions, acting, modelling, TV presenting, etc. When we got together, and she saw my FaceBook friends list and my love for photography she started modelling again.


My camera came out, got dusted off and went for a service. I then started doing modelling photography. Sonja spurred me on and pushed my boundaries and Deon vd Merwe Photography soon became Deon & Sonja Photography with Sonja as my editor and test model.
