An accomplished Dubai-based, interior, design and architecture photographer, with over 10 years of experience.
She started her photography journey in South Africa when she won an internship at a well respected wedding photography company. Her talent was soon noticed and only after a few months became one of their lead photographers. After moving to Dubai her horizons where broadened by the incredible design and architecture that UAE has to offer. Natelee Cocks Photography was born, and she quickly earned the reputation as one of the most sort after photographers in the region.
She has a clean, minimalistic style and attention to intimate details. Her love and focus is incorporating natural light, interesting lines and textures. Natelee has been commissioned by some of the biggest names in the architecture and design industry and her award winning images have been featured in numerous international publications. Her talent has seen her work in some exotic locations, which is a perfect marriage for her love of traveling and exploring.
Quietly yet deeply expressive, her photography captures the essence of spaces, places, objects and moods.
Working with Natelee is effortless. Her natural ability to capture the best moments of a space through her camera lens makes everything so easy. Her keen eye for the minutest detail is what makes the difference between a good picture and “the money shot!” Its always a pleasure working through a shoot with Natelee!
I had the good fortune to meet Natelee through the referral from a fellow interior designer who researched a lot of photographers before selecting Natelee to shoot her projects. Natelee has since shot 7 of my projects in addition to my professional portraits all with incredible attention to detail. I can really say that this investment has paid off; prospective clients have placed confidence in me on account of a professional first impression and Natelee's photos have so much to do with that. Her eye for composition and framing the shot is very unique and always bang-on. The way she captures the lighting in a space and edits the photos imparts a natural, yet dream-like quality that elicits an emotional response in the viewer and elevates the effect of the design. I always look forward to Natelee capturing my future projects!
Natelee is a talented and professional photographer who we have worked with often to capture our room installations and photo shoots. She allows creatives like us to do what we are good at and manages to capture our passion and dedication on camera every time, just in the right Scandi kinda way we like it. A big plus: she always quickly delivers an end product that we can be very proud of.
Right from my first enquiry, to the photoshoot and receiving the photos, it was a smooth, pleasant process with Natelee. Working with heavy abstract furniture collection is not easy on a hot summer day, but Natelee supported me with setup, took charge of life styling and produced a great set of professional photos for TAM's first catalogue. Highly recommended!
I have worked with Natelee since the very beginning of creating my brand White Moss and I can honestly say that her eye for amazing composition, unique editing style and styling powers have truly made the brand what it is today. Natelee has accompanied me on two trips to Bali to photograph my products and has always gone above and beyond to ensure we get some beautiful imagery that perfectly captures my unique brand and style.
