3 Top South African Destinations To Photograph That Will See Your Photos Flying Off The Shelf

Top Photographic Destinations

It’s never been easier to get into photography and to share your passion with others. Whether you’re approaching it as a side hustle or want to make the most of a part-time hobby and turn it into a living, you’ll wonder what the best way to sell your photos online is and which photography selling website you should trust.

The amount you lay out in time and equipment for your photography means that you should be getting well compensated for it, which is why you need to make sure the site where you upload your photos online to sell them is one that won’t try to steal your artwork or underpay you for it.

To make sure that your work is in demand by websites that sell photography/artwork, you might want to focus on the following South African destinations, which have proven popular for both home and business owners looking to decorate their spaces.

1. Maboneng, Johannesburg


Central Joburg has been undergoing a steady renaissance over the past few years, and the number of galleries and clubs popping up in the area are a testament to its popularity with the hip. Combine this with the area’s many historic buildings, and you have a juxtaposition of new and old that’s begging to be captured on film. Venture further into the CBD, and you can also photograph Museum Africa, Johannesburg City Hall, and Constitution Hill.

2. Bo-Kaap, Cape Town

Few areas in South Africa are as instantly recognisable as the Bo-Kaap. Thanks to recent activism, it’s likely that this colourful neighbourhood will receive Heritage Status, making any photos taken of it more in demand than ever. Heritage status will prevent commercial development, preserving the area’s architecture for years to come. Other highlights include the Bo-Kaap Museum (which was built in the 1700s) and South Africa’s oldest mosque.

3. The Golden Mile, Durban

Durban Golden Mile

If you want a chance to photograph everything from people to wildlife and other sights and sounds in a single trip, you can’t go wrong with taking a stroll along Durban’s Golden Mile. Here you’ll have a chance to photograph swimmers and surfers on South Beach, local vendors hawking beaded arts and crafts to tourists as well as the nearby Suncoast Casino and heritage hotels and skyscrapers along the coast.

Why You Should Consider Buying Printed Artwork Online.

A bare wall is unwelcoming, whether it’s in your bedroom or your boardroom. Thankfully, you have unlimited options when it comes to decorating your walls.

The challenge comes when you try to purchase artwork for your home or office that stands out from the rest. You don’t want a run of the mill, mass-produced print, but at the same time, you don’t want to have to traipse from gallery to gallery to find something suitable. Thankfully there is another option, and it involves buying photography or printed artwork online.

Get Inspired With Social Media

For most people, finding inspiration for decorating their homes or offices comes from social media. There are no shortages of hashtags and accounts you can follow that give you a sneak peek into millions of beautiful spaces all over the world. This approach has its drawbacks though, as being located in South Africa means we often don’t have access to the same stores that international markets do – or that we have to pay prohibitively high shipping costs to get what we’re after. The solution to this is PicFlick. You can browse an endless array of beautiful imagery, and if you find one you want, you can have it printed and delivered to your doorstep, without any import fuss or hassle.

Support Local Photography

Hardly a day goes by where you don’t hear about a major company using designs, photos or images from another person, without permission. They then go on to mass produce the art in question, and its creator is forced into an uphill legal battle to get compensation and credit. With PicFlick, you get to directly support local talent, giving them full credit and compensating them fairly for their photography.

As a result, you can hang a wide array of unique artwork in your home that wouldn’t look out of place in an art gallery or upscale boutique.

Upgrade Your Home Or Office Today

It’s never been easier to give your workspace or home a much-needed makeover or upgrade using beautiful artwork. You could browse PicFlick’s social media pages while filling up with petrol or queuing in a shop, and once you’ve found what you like and paid for it online, it will come straight to your door. Whether you’re looking for a stark black and white image of the bushveld in the style of Ansel Adams or a striking portrait of Sandton’s skyline after a thunderstorm, you’re bound to find something you like.
