Hi and welcome!  I am Sue, the photographer here at Sue Tatham Creative


My home and studio are centred around the living and breathing passion for art.

I have been in the creative world since I was a tiny tot. I earned my National Diploma in Art and Design at TUT, and with so much passion for art that I went on to complete my BA Honours - Fine Art at UCT in South Africa.  My award-winning photography and art has been represented in several collections, exhibitions and publications through the years with a notable selection as finalist in the SPI National Portrait Awards in 2013.

My favourite mediums of art are photography, oils, charcoal, pastels and printmaking.  I am multifaceted to say the least.  I love working in the field of art and my general focus leans more to the female figure and portraiture.  Working from life ... this is a passion.  


I bring art to life with my distinctive products and artistic services; certainly not your run-of-the-mill artist right here.  I bring out my client's style with flair and an individual touch


Art in all its forms is so completely personal, which is why I choose to offer custom design packages and commissioned packages built just for you; distinctive memories to cherish for a lifetime. Each frame is created individually.  I am not your ordinary photographer.  I am a photographer with a unique and creative touch.


Since 2011 I have been a full-time photographer and artist


Although teaching and lecturing was most rewarding, there is no longer the time for it.  I have run my own Art School with a driving passion for the field of art. I have lectured for 18 years in fashion design and other design courses at universities such as Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Stellenbosch University and other private universities. We reside in Stellenbosch, formerly in Cape Town and we have two beautiful adult daughters.

As you can ascertain from this short synopsis of years of experience, I live and breathe the art world as does my husband, artist and graphic design lecturer Pienaar van Niekerk. 


Life is a living and breathing work of art and I love every moment of capturing its beauty
