Koos Badenhorst is as passionate about photography as he is about art. With his photographs, he documents memorable moments in action and increases the recognition of artists. Working with chefs, opera singers, musicians, and dancers, he skillfully captures live performances. In the visual arts, he has documented a range of media including paintings, sculpture, functional and art pottery, glass, fiber art, jewelry and mixed media. His work is widely published in art and craft magazines, technical handbooks, billboards, and advertisements.

As a former business analyst and project manager, Badenhorst helps visual and performing creatives build their portfolio and evaluate their work through his viewfinder. He promotes artists on his own website KoosPhotos.com, as well as TeachinArt.com, an online school of art, founded by he and his wife, Antoinette Badenhorst.
