SA Photographic Blog of the Year

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.

Thinking Picture

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 Flickr. Thanks Coda

  1. LOL. Did you list them via preference? The top 3 is frightfully similar to my choices. Click on to Ross’ site now.

  2. I did state: “In no particular order I present to you”. My preference order is slightly different to this 🙂

    We both have an eye for good photography Gideon 🙂

    Ross has some great shots I’m sure you’ll love his work.

  3. Thanks for that Damien 🙂

  4. oi – yeah… it’s obvious that i dont read when im distracted by these images. Quite sad that I don’t spend as much time taking photos as I once did. Will have to make time to do that again and add it to my page.
