About Artist

Des Kleineibst

I am a photographic artist living in Sedgefield on the Garden Route, South Africa. I have spent the past 40+ years honing my craft specializing in Automotive Photography for the Advertising Industry, leading to numerous local and international awards. In between my commercial assignments, I have always photographed seascapes, landscapes, textures, and abstracts for my personal pleasure. Backlighting and side lighting are my preferred lighting directions, often combined with cloudy weather to add drama and excitement to the scene. These fine art images do not necessarily reflect what was actually there to be photographed - a camera is a machine that captures the image but my interpretation of what I felt and wanted to express at the time of capturing the image and thereafter working on them in my digital darkroom. I am intrigued by really long exposures (up to 15 minutes) and multiple in-camera exposures as this is where I can only imagine what the final image could look like. I love the fluidity of movement of all the on-static elements in the image, particularly water, and clouds, and actively search for locations and subjects that are conducive to this shooting technique. My camera of choice is my Canon 50 Mega-Pixel Camera System. My goal is to achieve an end result that reflects my vision and intention at the time, not necessarily reality, and in doing so, to bring pleasure to the viewer.
