“The go! family lost a good friend this weekend. Carlie Norval was one of our regular freelance photographers, a colleague and our Man in the Eastern Cape. Going through his photo archives this morning was a sad, sad thing. Were these his favourites? I never got the chance to ask. What they show is that he knew a thing or two about light. He will be sorely missed: his laughter, his professionalism and especially his enthusiasm for the road, for photography, for cars and for life.” ˗ Sam Reinders
“Carlie and I had just returned from a trip to the Wild Coast. It feels unreal to refer to him in the past tense. He was a brilliant photographer, very serious about his work and a special person: friendly, kind, witty and always accommodating. He loved his Black Labels and they loved him! It was a privilege to spend a week with him just before he passed away. We were both looking forward to many more go! trips together.” ˗ Erns Grundling
