Cathy is a photographer I met through the Facebook group Cape of Storms – essentially Cape Town-based amateur and pro photographers, mostly shooting urban and rural landscapes.   In the year or so that I have known her, her work has improved radically, signposted by her posts on Facebook, referencing photo workshops she has attended […]
