Cape Town Bucket list (Photography)

Cape Town is one of the best cities in the world when it comes to photography, I can say that Cape Town and Photography changed my life. My name is Craig Howes, I used to be an investment banker, and now I'm a full-time Travel Photographer and filmmaker based out of Cape Town. I have spent the last 10 or so years photographing and filming almost every aspect of Cape Town. Give me a follow on Instagram: @CraigHowes

Cape Town Photographers Bucket list

Lions Head

Lion's head is my all-time favourite spot in Cape Town. For me should be at the top of everyone's Cape Town bucket list! The hike takes about 45-60 minutes from the bottom depending on fitness.
