Our Canon SNAPSHOT regional winner is…

We had a phenomenal response to our Caxton Snapshot of the Neighbourhood competition. The judges – our Canon professionals – had a tough time selecting the winner, but here’s our winner, who so happens to also have walked off with the overall prize!

Hailing from the leafy suburb of Umgeni Park, 39-year-old David Fritz is a salesman at Tafelberg Furnishers in Umhlanga, who relishes any opportunity he can to get into a green space, and relax with his two dogs. He loves Durban for its amazing beaches and parks, and a regular treat for him and his Jack Russells is a visit to the Durban Botanical Gardens. Always armed with a camera of sorts, his winning photo was, in his words, a stroke of luck.

“My dog was sniffing the butterfly when it flew up and landed on the post, so the timing was perfect and I was able to quickly capture what I felt was an image that highlights the beautiful and diverse nature that exists in the middle of a bustling city. Winning this means so much more to me that just the prize alone, although I cannot wait to get to grips with this incredible camera. All I really wanted was put to forward an image in the hopes that others too would be able to appreciate the beauty of our city’s hidden gems, just as I do. We all need to take a moment to focus on the smaller and often overlooked details in nature. I’m so thrilled, thank you for this great opportunity and the great news that followed!”
