Welcome to My Adventure

I'm Peter Krainhofner Professional, Portrait and Wildlife Photography Expert in Cape Town, South Africa

I have been on a roller coaster ride over the last ten years. I gave up the corporate world ten years ago and took a chance and went on this crazy-beautiful and, at times, scary ride. I had to get out and finally follow my heart.


Now I want to take you all with me to enjoy this incredible journey. These unprecedented times have forced many of us to rethink our careers, our life’s philosophy, even our future. Amidst the turmoil and insecurity that we’re now living with daily, I hope this will not only be a pleasurable distraction but will inspire and motivate you, enrich your mind and expand your horizon as well as make you think outside the box and if not for anything else, enjoy the ride.


As Bob Marley put it, “Though the road's been rocky it sure feels good to me.”


I needed to be free and the gipsy in me finally came to the surface. I’ve always been a gipsy and have never settled down. I got that from my dad. I’ve travelled and worked all over the world from London to Los Angeles, Koh Tao to Kuwait, Berlin to Dublin and Joburg to Cape Town.


I would also like to introduce you to My Virtual Tours In these video clips, you can find the first few videos here, or on the pulldown menu above, I will take you on many varied adventures throughout South Africa and beyond. 

My overriding passion is photography and I have a variety of unique subjects that I’m truly passionate about such as Wildlife Photography and Videography, Pet Photography, Portraiture, music and, of course, Travel Photography. You can view a few of these images in the Portfolio section.

I became a tour guide out of a love for this country and this is my adventure. As a South African Tour Guide, I am now forced to rethink my career, and even my future and I saw all these opportunities in front of me. I’ve always jumped into the deep end but I’ve learnt to swim a long time ago.

Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.” Henry Ford - 1863-1947 - Industrialist - Founder of Ford Motor Company


Many thanks to everyone who helped me get this package together, especially Tanya Vaish from Pearl Organisation. Without her help, I would have been like a fish on dry land. Her design and layout, as well as technical editing skills, have saved me months of unnecessary struggle.

To everyone else who gave their support and encouragement. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Please sit back and enjoy the world through My Lens and Story.
