    PAUL VAN SCHALKWYK PHOTOGRAPHY

    I have seen vistas opening up beneath my airplanes wings, a valuable and treasured experience which, in photographing, I hope to communicate the need for appreciation and protection. Paul van Schalkwyk, October 2013

    The late Paul van Schalkwyk is one of the worlds most celebrated aerial photographers. His solo adventures over the Namibian landscape have set the benchmark within this photographic genre creating a lasting legacy of images, which display a deeply concerned and emotional connection to the land he called home.

    FINE ART

    An exquisite collection of landscape & aerial photographs are available as fine art prints, depicting the unspoiled beauty and splendour of the Namibian landscape.
