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.
