So, after an extended leave of absence from blogging (work, work, and yet more work), I bring you: the ABC of photography, named because this blog post is about three people I know who are brilliant amateur photographers, and those of the initials of their first names (yes, I know, it’s a freaky coincidence).
First up is Adam Barta – a very old friend of mine from my 2003 UCT days, now globetrotting in the US. I’d got a glimpse of what he was capable of via photos that he’d occassionally stick up on his Facebook profile; I recently learned that he set up his own photography site, so I went off to check it out the other day. Words cannot describe the photos that are up there. You have to check it out for yourself.
The other two are both members of the PCFormat forums: Bertus Ras (WiK1d) and Cathy Brookes (Tribble). Bertus has his own site located here – I must say, this kid has talent. Lots of it. Take a look at the close-ups there and you’ll see what I mean. Cathy doesn’t seem to have a website of her own – to find her stuff, you’ll have to sift through this monster of a thread over at PCF, but the search is worth it – so too is the sifting, as there are many other talented photographers that lurk there; Knuckles is one that comes to mind.
There’s other talent I know of out there – if you have your own photography site and want to mention it, let me know – Palu, I’m referring to you here!
EDIT: It appears that Cathy has a deviantART page, so it’s getting a link. 😉
