Photography in Cape Town
Cape Town is a photographer’s dream – whether you are an absolute amateur snapping pics with your phone, or a world-renowned professional after that prize winning shot – Cape Town offers the location and the lighting to make any and all look like a pro. Inspiration abounds with every turn, be it on the streets of the inner city, boats nodding in Kalk Bay Harbour, flowers and fynbos on the slopes of the Table Mountain National Park or the craggy Cape Point coastline and the glorious sunsets over the ocean from Camps Bay or Lion’s Head.
Go with someone who knows
Cape Photographic Company (www.capephotoco.co.za) guarantees that after a standard, specialised or customised photographic day tour, your photography skills will improve dramatically. Tours are customised for beginners, amateurs and advanced photographers, and are conducted by a professional photographer and accredited tour guide.
Do it all in a day
Photographic day tours on offer include visits to some of the Cape’s photographic hotspots with a personal photo guide. Chose from Cape Point, the wonderful winelands, mountain passes, townships, the West Coast, or try a shipwreck and lighthouse tour. You will be taken to the quaint fishing village of Hout Bay, out to photograph the fur seals on Duiker Island or to the penguins Boulders Beach. Snap the iconic and colourful beach huts at St James Beach or the old, rusted shipwrecks at Cape Point.
You name it, we’ve got it
Cape Town is a veritable melting pot of different cultures and people all happy to be snapped going about their day. Rastafarians in their colourful red, green and yellow garb hang out in the Bohemian suburb of Observatory and always make for interesting portrait material. The Bo-Kaap, with its many colourful houses, lends itself to the observant photographer and is reminiscent of the Cape of yesteryear, while the townships resonate with the sounds of kwaito and hip-hop. The city’s many flea markets, such as Greenmarket Square, also provide great subject material for photographers, as do top-notch eateries, historical attractions and music venues.
The Cape Photographic Company is available to assist with all your Cape Town photographic requirements.
