Janek is a talented professional photographer and designer who has had more than 45 printed books published, and has contributed to many more.
Born in the United Kingdom, he has lived in South Africa for most of his life, and has a wealth of experience that spans a wide range of different media types and styles. He quit a successful career in the pharmaceutical industry to follow his heart, working first for daily newspapers, and then on magazines, photographing everything from wildlife to exclusive elegant homes, pools and gardens.
Self employed since the 1980s, he launched his first give away advertising-powered publication, Home Care, which had a circulation of 100,000 copies and was distributed free in metropolitan areas. He was co-publisher of a national swimming pool publication for eight years where he gained a wealth of knowledge about pools and spas, which he can now pass on to the visitors to poolsprofessor.com.
Into the 21st century, Janek’s focus has changed, and today he builds websites, including several of his own and is co-owner of Pools Professor.
