Werner has more than two decades experience in aviation photography, from doing photography in the SANDF, to being a contracted photographer (for product catalogues & portrait photography)  and;  as a freelance aviation photographer. As a  visual artist, he also expresses his creativity in other visual art forms such as drawing, painting and graphic design.

While much of his creative work focuses on military aviation themes, he does photographic assignments for clients in the tourism, real estate, manufacturing, industrial  and retail/commercial sectors as well.

Experienced in ground-to-air and air-to-air photography, he offers the viewer the opportunity to get a personal view of the exciting world of aviation.

Aviation photography is the art of capturing images of aircraft, in flight or on the ground. Aviation photography requires knowledge of special techniques and of the aircraft to be done properly. There are different types of aviation photography, including air-to-air, ground-to-air, ground-static, and remote photography. Military aviation photography, especially air-to-air, requires additional skills.

He has formal education in PR/media liaison, photography, videography, fine art and visual media. His former Air Force career experience sharpens his flight safety awareness; an integral consideration for every aviation photo sortie or photo shoot.
