I am a Namibian surf, lifestyle and travel photographer, videographer, content creator and adventure seeker capturing beautiful moments while searching for exotic beaches, surfing tropical islands or going on African safari’s.
Who is Yana?
Born and bred in Namibia, a country with endless gravel roads leading through a picture perfect landscape, where camping is part of a normal lifestyle, wildlife is addictive, braaivleis is a tradition, where sand dunes meet the ocean and where I’m a local at one of the longest barreling wave in the world.
Donkey bay. Namibia.
Besides living in the desert, I am addicted to the tropics. I’m a full-on beach addict and gadget girl! I love spending the surf season hopping along surf camps or resorts offering my photography and videography skills by challenging my creativity and fiddling around with my camera.

You can see all my photos I sell and my production videos on my Makalani Productions website. My photography is based on surf, outdoor and wildlife subjects, whereas my videography covers not only surfing but wedding and promotional productions too.
The ocean is my playground!
My place of happiness, sunshine, adventures, feel good and dreams!
I hope I can inspire you to travel and live your dream!
