    There is something special about the places and people that we spend time with. It has to be something to do with the time because, as our most precious personal commodity, we give it freely, either directly or indirectly, to those who occupy the spaces around us and we only like to share our precious commodities with those that we care about. This is what makes the schools we go to, the places that we visit and the towns that we fall in love with so special to us. Every day we plant a piece of ourselves here, in uMhlathuze, in our community.

    So what better way for you to celebrate those moments, days and experiences than in your very own glossy, stylish community magazine that sings the praises of Zululands people and places by sharing their great stories and memorable pictures?

    This is why we have launched your very own glossy magazine, The Bay. We love the community and we love celebrating everyday life there. At FabMags weve been publishing community magazines for a while now (check out our website www.fabmags.co.za) and we have a deep appreciation of what people want to see and read about when it comes to where they live. We know that its stories about local people doing great things, special

    places to visit and experience, new ways of looking at the things that we see every day, celebrating our kids and, most importantly, giving you loads of pictures that you can relate to and have fun looking at. That is a community magazine and that is what weve wrapped up in this very first edition of The Bay just for you.

    We hope that you enjoy the mag. Keep it on a coffee table or next to your bed. Flip through it a couple times and share it with family and friends. The Bay is something to enjoy and boast about because its your magazine about your part of the world and its a celebration of that way of life.

    You are also invited to send us ideas, facts and bits about Richards Bay, Empangeni and Zululand in general, so dont be shy to share photos with us that you think are worthy of appearing in the magazine. Wed love to hear from you and we promise to keep covering good news stories about the Zululand way of life!

    Welcome to The Bay magazine.

    God BlessJustin & the FabMags Team

    We truly live in an amazing part of KZN, one that is characterised by unspoilt beauty stretching

    from our pristine coastline to abundant forests and rolling green hills! Richards Bay boasts

    one of the only beaches here with shark nets and blue flag status something that is hard

    to come by these days. It also offers a number of beaches that cater for the varying needs of

    different beach users and activities.

    We take a look at what some of the beaches in The Bay have to offer.

    PHOTOGRAPHER TO LOOK OUT FORLOCALKIM STEINBERG

    PHOTOGRAPHERS PROFILE

    Theres something about a good photograph that captures the imagination and enchants the eye, whether its because its a memory that will be forever frozen in time, or the fact that you can capture the most precious moments in someones life! I have always envied the way in which photographers view life how they can find something aesthetically pleasing in even the most insignificant or (to the rest of us) less-than-attractive thing. We are so blessed in our small town to have some truly amazing photographers right here, all unique and different in their own way, but with one common underlying factor they are all brilliant!

    With this in mind, we have decided that during the next couple of months we will profile some of Zululands best photographers, people who we think that you should look out for when thinking of capturing that next special moment!

    In our first edition, we are profiling Kim Steinberg, a photographer who is known for her absolute passion when it comes to her craft. With a natural flair for creativity and a background in design, she has become a photographer to be reckoned with. As well as being a kick-ass photographer, Kim also heads up the art direction for a local travel magazine and is also one of Getaway magazines online bloggers, which takes her photography to all sorts of weird and wonderful places. Specializing in weddings, hotel and family shoots, Kim Steinberg is this months local photographer to look out for!
