Mike Elof

Mike was born in 1979, grew up all over South Africa, but settled in Cape Town in 2000 after finishing school and college in Port Elizabeth.

He is a self taught photographer that stumbled into the photography scene in 2009 when his girlfriend, Carlinn, started a fashion & beauty blog and needed someone to take photos of her.

Since they were both living in Malta at the time, they started traveling around Europe, which is where their love for Travel was ignited.

In 2014 he gave up his corporate job and became a full time freelance Travel & Lifestyle photographer with Carlinn.

As an avid Trail Runner and Adventurer, Mike loves any time spent in the mountains shooting the beautiful landscapes Cape Town and South Africa have to offer.

When he is not in the mountains, he is traveling the world with Carlinn, reviewing and creating beautiful content for Luxury Hotels and Lodges.

He shoots with a Sony A7RIII & 16-35mm f/2.8 as well as the Sony RX100VI to create some unique images and video content which is posted mostly to his Instagram account @lifeofmikza.

Mike also posts to his IG Stories Daily, where he showcases a lot of the work created and shot on his Sony Devices.
