Grant Leversha

Shortly after starting his career in sports photography in 1992, Grant soon became the Springbok Rugby Team’s official photographer and covered every Bok game in South Africa and abroad from 1993 to 1997. He found his passion in golf course photography in the mid-nineties and established himself as the country's most esteemed artist with a string of awards to his name and his work is now showcased in almost every golfing corner of the world.

Most, if not South Africa's entire body of highest-ranked golf courses use his material in promoting their resorts and establishments. Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Ernie Els use his work in marketing their respective design businesses.

In 2013, his self-published tome on golf courses in South Africa, entitled Within an African Eden, scooped most of the major international art-book publishing awards hosted in the USA, an unprecedented achievement for a work on golf.



In the face of stiff competition from thousands of excellent entries submitted by publishers, printers, museums and university presses from around the world (including New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Getty Museum, Los Angeles), Grant’s work won the gold medals at the Benjamin Franklin Awards, Gold Ink, IPPY, Creativity International and the Canadian Print.

His landscape photographic art, using the larger format camera systems has seen his work displayed in an ever-increasing number of select galleries. His works are displayed in many collectors’ homes around the world.
