Based in South Africa & mainly working the Johannesburg area. Photographer Roland Woon & his work is often complimented on and described as Talented & Professional.

“I have always found joy in working with cars, I started out physically working on cars in an Alfa Romeo workshop. I eventually felt that this wasn’t the correct career choice for me. I still however wanted to work with cars as that was still my main passion.
This is when I decided to take a different approach and used photography as my next career path which would still allow me to work with cars.”

Roland has shot some of the world’s most iconic and prestigious car brands such as Ferrari, Mclaren & Pagani to name a few. Roland has also worked with brands and institutions such as Lamborghini, Bentley & The University of Johannesburg within South Africa multiple times.

Some of Roland’s work has also been featured in well known digital publications such as Zero2Turbo. Roland’s stock photography has also been used in TopGear Magazine SA advertisements as well as a number of agencies internationally.

Roland is a total perfectionist and always delivers the highest possible quality to clients while doing his best to fulfill clients desires and requirements to ensure they receive photography with the right look and feel for their projects.

I enjoy working with light, it plays an important part in ensuring I get the right shot. Light can be formed and almost moulded in a way to aid my creativity.

Roland is entirely devoted to making each shoot a success.

“I strongly believe in doing what you enjoy for a living, you need to enjoy what you do, life is too short not to.”

“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion.”

-Roland Woon

Roland is utterly professional and organised. The entire process relating to the organisation and execution of the photoshoot was extremely simple. His work is top-notch and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone after some high quality content for their business, website or social media platforms.


My name is Zadie Becker; I am a lecturer at the University of Johannesburg’s Department of Jewellery Design and Manufacture. We made use of Rollin Photography’s services to photograph our student work for the annual FADA Year-End Exhibition. Roland worked with the utmost professionalism, making the experience pleasant and convenient. He catered to all our needs, providing us beautiful quality images within a small time-frame at a very reasonable price. The printed photographs received amazing feedback at the exhibition. Roland’s work has an artistic quality- he creates beautiful compositions, has innovative ideas and has the ability to achieve wonders with models. We will definitely make use of his services again in the future and would highly recommend Rollin Photography to anyone in need of a quality jewellery/fashion photographer.


I’ve worked with Rollz on numerous occasions and have always had a first class experience. Not only is he professional and affordable.. he goes the extra mile. Will always recommend and use him for any photography requirements.


“We had the privilege of hosting Roland at Scuderia Johannesburg, he approached us with great willingness and enthusiasm to do a photography session with some of our vehicles.

His time spent with us was great, his skill with camera’s and lighting is incredible and the final product amazed us all.

We recommend his photography to many!

We really wish that he gets more opportunity to shoot many more cars in future and we look forward to inviting him to shoot some of our newer cars in the near future.”

5 Stars for sure! Roland captured images according to our brief perfectly and was VERY patient. Being in the logistics industry, time is a precious commodity but Roland was understanding and willing to work around some challenges. 100% committed and professional at all times. I can highly recommend Rollin Photography for any shoot.
