Rose & Thorns is voted Photographic Blog of 2018!


I’m incredibly thrilled, and grateful, that this lovely little blog of mine won in the category of Best Photographic Blog 2018 in the SA Blog Awards!

The SA Blog Awards is the official showcase and recognition platform for the very best of South African blogs. The process works through public opinion, blogger opinion and social media expert’s opinion.

We’ll all admit that we’re doing what we love for more than public affirmation…but sometimes it’s really nice to receive an accolade like this.

Thank you to everyone who voted – your support helps me to continue to do what I love.

These quotes pretty much sum up my thoughts on photography and winning Best Photographic Blog:

“When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.” Robert Frank

“Take photographs in the wood, run alone in the rain and sing your heart out high up on a mountain where no one will ever hear
and your very existence will be the most hypnotising scar. Make your life be your art and you will never be forgotten.” Charlotte Eriksson

“Photographers tend not to photograph what they can’t see, which is the very reason one should try to attempt it. Otherwise we’re going to go on forever just photographing more faces and more rooms and more places. Photography has to transcend description. It has to go beyond description to bring insight into the subject, or reveal the subject, not as it looks, but how does it feel?”  Duane Michals

Oh, and to be totally shameless, if you want to book a shoot just give me a shout 😉
