industrial engineering, Stellenbosch

Industrial Engineering US

Industrial engineering – an exciting field of study at many a worthy university and in this case Stellenbosch University. How do they market their course? How do interested people and potential Stellenbosch students know what to expect or who’s involved? Well, they have their own website and pamphlets and student prospectus etc. But one crucial element that’s needed to spice things up is photographs or excellent graphics.

This is why this photography project was commissioned in order to provide them with a whole stock library that the Industrial Engineering department can use in their various marketing and communication mediums to showcase visually.

Such photographs make a handy tool in the arsenal of any establishment’s marketing, public relations or media department. Click here for another example of stock library photos for an establishment.

roofing project

Roofing Project

When I photographed this Cape Town roofing project, I soon realised that this construction project is probably the most impressive school building I have ever seen and will see in a long time. The company that does the work on the roof has done an excellent job as you can see for yourself. It was a photographer’s dream to capture all the lines and angles that is evident on this site, where photographic opportunities presented themselves around every corner.

These photos are part of a visual documentation tool that documents the progression of this fascinating construction project and keep it on the record for their portfolio and as a tool for any visual marketing needs in the future. Here you can see a similar project we photographed for another roofing company and another approach to construction / renovation branding projects.

 

endoscopy, knee

Knee Endoscopy Procedure

In this video you can see amazing endoscopy technology being used in a knee procedure performed just outside Cape Town by these skilled doctors.

The patient’s knee is being fixed by the doctor only making two incisions where the high-tech camera and tool penetrate to clean up the knee. This technology allows for high definition image management that puts the doctor in complete control of what is happening inside. The doctor can oversee the entire procedure by just looking on the screen that links up with what he’s doing inside the patient.

WESSA

WESSA Birthday celebrations intro

WESSA is the oldest nature conservation organisation in South Africa that was founded in 1926! Wessa stands for Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa. They aim to ensure the long-term preservation of South Africa’s fauna and flora.

Thus it was with great joy that they celebrated their 90th birthday last year and wanted to send a message to all their staff, supporters and the people of South Africa.

So we helped WESSA to create a short message to the people and herewith is the creative photo slideshow that we helped put together to serve as an intro for the messages.

This example is a creative way in which to showcase photos or archives for interested viewers. Add a voice – over and a song and that’s it!

Happy Birthday!

Stock Photos ADA

Stock Photos – unique to your own establishment

There comes a day when the generic stock photos on the internet just doesn’t make the cut for the branding material a company needs to showcase what it does or liven up their marketing material. The everyday person nowadays, can spot a generic stock photo from a mile away.

This is when it makes sense to capture a company’s own stock photos that portrays your own establishment and that is unique to the company.

Such photos can be used for quite some time and can be used across a wide range of marketing material. For example – website visuals and branding, posters, booklets, pamphlets etc.

Professional photos will show your potential and current clients that your establishment is serious about their own brand and are proud to showcase to the world what they offer via their own uniquely applied stock photos.

Lifestyle Galaxy Banner design

Lifestyle Galaxy – a Professional showcase!

It’s once again time for the annual NSBC business expo at the CTICC in Cape Town where The Pixel Revelation was asked to design the Lifestyle Galaxy  Bitcoin Mining banner for the business expo where Andre and his team could now visually showcase their products and services to interested delegates. We worked closely with Andre and incorporated his ideas and message into this banner design.

A well designed banner that consists of both visually striking as well as informative content is a killer–combo that will draw the attention of potential customers at business expo’s and sticks out from the rest of the banners and stands. Banner design can also make room for extra’s such as TV screens and shelves for alternative display add-ons for bigger impact.

We are proud to announce that the Lifestyle Galaxy banner stand won the award for the best stand at this expo.

If you don’t believe me – have a look at the photos I took there and see what we can do for your brand or product.

Property photography marketing

Property Photography Marketing

Today, the importance of visual marketing, by means of integration with professional property photography are paramount to making the sales you want, when you want as well as showing your clients that you are serious about your professional brand.

Some estate agents still manage to sell their houses with cellphone cameras and underexposed photos. But what damage is being done to their brand? Remember, the estate agent’s “shopfront” (the first interaction a brand has with a client) is the print add or website that will list the property to potential buyers. Thus what harm are you doing to your brand, when you have unprofessional photos hitting your client square in the face?

Professional photographs are step one in marketing a property for sale or for rent. And bad photos will equate to a bad start. And remember, the more bad it looks with regards to the condition/look/feel of the property – the more you need a professional approach to capture the property in the best way possible.

deep sea trawling stock photos

Deep Sea Trawling stock photos

As an adventurous man, I could not turn down the opportunity when asked to go out on a deep sea trawler and capturing stock photos of the life of the fishermen and their work environment. One really gets a lot of respect for them when you witness first-hand how it is to live and work on the deep sea trawlers. Although commercial deep sea fishing has come a long way with regards to the technology used on the vessels, it still is an arduous job that comes with its set of dangers around every corner. Deep sea trawling is not for the faint hearted! Thanks to the captain and the crew for their hospitality and for their willingness to be documented.

Stock photos like these are ideal for a company to have in their arsenal of marketing material. The reasons are that the company can use these photos on their website, brochures, banner and even in the foyer to show clients and customers what they do and how they do it.
