Lizane Louw

Photographer + Multimedia Journalist + Designer

My name is Lizane. I am a multimedia journalist and photographer specialising in stories on travel, culture, and the natural world. My long-term projects focus on the environment, the human condition and the pressing issues of climate change and global warming.

My extensive travels through Asia, Europe, and Africa have inspired me to document the impacts of human activities on the environment. In sharing stories on these topics, I want to foster awareness and encourage dialogue around environmental preservation, sustainable travel, positive cultural practices, and sustainability.

Studio Stories. A Social Journey.

CURRENT PROJECTS

SOLO PHOTO EXPEDITION, INDIA

I will head back to India in February to explore Rajasthan's textile traditions, experiment with and learn about the pottery traditions, and revisit Jaipur, Bagru, and all the villages known for block printing traditions.

My journey will also take me to West Bengal, the Himalayan foothills, and the tea plantations of Darjeeling and Assam for the first tea harvests of the season.

I look forward to epic sustainable travel explorations and testing my design for a sustainable travel and expedition app.

Join me on my journey exploring local communities as I share stories of the region's heritage in art and culture.

ABOUT ME AND MY WORK

MY WORK IN MULTIMEDIA AND DESIGN

I am an independent multimedia and creative professional, working as a photographer, multimedia journalist, multimedia editor and digital products designer in multimedia.

I was born in Cape Town, South Africa, but I have lived and worked internationally as a photographer and journalist for over 17 years.

As a designer, I work in digital design at the intersection of journalism, communication, design and technology. I provide product design that creates visual and immersive experiences.

As a multimedia journalist and photographer, I cover travel, culture, environment, and sustainability stories when on the road in Europe and Africa. In addition, I write about photography, photographic work, art, and exhibitions when I am based in Berlin.

As a travel, culture and nature photographer, my work in photography focuses on the environment, sustainability, and the human experience. My long-term visual projects investigate how our daily activities impact the environment due to climate change, global warming, and natural habitat loss. I also document events that visually portray the changes in our oceans, the atmosphere and soil.

From Tealeaf to Teacup.

MY BACKGROUND

My career started as a photojournalist for Media24 publications in South Africa in 2007. I have since spent a decade in Asia, travelling, exploring and continuing my studies in visual journalism. I studied multimedia journalism at ACFJ, Ateneo de Manila University and graduated with a master's degree in journalism in 2019.

My work in journalism shifted from hard news and investigative journalism to topics on the environment and sustainability after a story I did on marine debris and pollution in Taiwan.

I moved to Germany, got married, and now my written work as a travel journalist focuses on culture, travel, eco-tourism, sustainability, culinary arts and exotic retreats. My photography focus on unique outdoor adventures to remote and unusual destinations.
