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.

Dark chocolate cake in a parade

As a man who loves eating, I won’t say no to taking a few photos of food that I can eat afterwards – especially if it is this lovely dark chocolate dessert prepared by Chef Jaco from Yoco Eatery. He plated the same ingredients in different ways which we captured in the photos below. For you who are interested in perhaps attempting to make this yourself, here are more details:

Dark chocolate cake, salted caramel cream, yogurt buttermilk granita, candied beetroot, coconut gel, liquorice meringue, marinated raspberries. For the full recipe – visit Cook Niche to make your own dark chocolate dessert.

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.

Durbanville matric photos

Durbanville Matric Photos

Time flies – especially high school! This was once again the case with this group of matrics that had their Durbanville matric photos and got together for a few photos beforehand. I was asked to capture the photos for Louw and Carla who really seemed excited for the event. I’m sure they’ll agree that these photos are worth keeping and looking at for years to come.
