About the Book
The Republic of South Africa is a country of immense beauty and diversity with many wonderful sights to be seen. Located at the southern tip of Africa, it is divided into nine provinces, with coastline on the Atlantic and Indian oceans.
This book is the result of a photographers journey starting in Johannesburg and traveling through Mpumalanga, Swaziland and KwaZulu-Natal to the coastal Garden Route in Eastern Cape and onto Cape Town and it's surrounds. Many of the wonderful and well known sights have been photographed along with less well noticed subjects. A particular interest of mine is the flora of South Africa, usually referred to as fynbos, and this was photographed along with other wildlife subjects whenever an opportunity arose.
To me the beautiful jacaranda tree picture on the front cover of the book epitomises the beauty of South Africa.

I am a freelance Travel and Fine Art photographer specialising in travel, nature, lifestyle and people photography and undertake commissioned work in any of these areas as well as contributing to photographic stock libraries. I have had work published all around the world in books, magazines and news media. Now self-publication is becoming easier to achieve I aim to prepare a selection of photographic books on various topics, mainly for my own personal satisfaction, but also to hopefully sell a few books and help fund my many photography projects.
