I’ve been sifting through the large amount of South African blogs trying to find possible nominees for this year’s blog awards. There are so many great blogs out there it’s hard to decide who my votes will go to.
When choosing nominees for the Best Photographic Blog I urge you to take a look at a few photographers that I am considering to nominate. No, I am not being paid to promote these guys, I am just amazed at their talented portfolios.
In no particular order I present to you:
This is the photoblog of Jason Strachan. Living in Cape Town, South Africa he shoots his photographs with a Canon 350D, Canon 15mm fisheye, Tokina 12-24mm, Tamron 28-75mm and “other assorted junk”.
All of Jason’s photos have a great written description accompanying each photo. They really bring his works to life.
This is the photoblog of Grant Somebody (can’t find Grant’s surname), a visuals effects artist. Grant is a saffa who has been living abroad for 12 years and has now returned home.
Grant has obviously used his effects skills to create this mesmerizing photo. I absolutely love it.
Update: It’s Grant Legassick and his portfolio can also be found on Coda
Lorissa is a South African, living in Oxford, UK. She is a co-founder and creative director of a small design studio, dynamic vantage, and a photographer, currently rather interested in food photography. she co-created expressions which is the photoblogging system that powers her site and many others.
Ross is 20 years old and consumed by the art of photography. He is continually inspired by the world around him; Shapes of trees, light falling through a window, clouds, sunrise, colours, people, music, adventure. He hates to sleep. Taking photographs is his way of speaking to the world through art. Ross’s portfolio runs off Lorissa’s photoblogging system, and is published on numerous sites and in magazines.
