Building Photography

Building Photography

Building photography is quite an overlooked element for many construction companies when it comes to their marketing strategy.  If your establishment created a piece of art, it should be treated as such. Just taking pictures with the site manager’s cellphone camera does not do these kind of projects justice. Documenting projects such as this exceptional building construction project in Cape Town professionally, immortalizes the project and can be used to market to future clients.

Construction and building photographs can be used for social media marketing platforms such as Facebook or Instagram posts and is a good way to showcase to the world what you can do. If you offer professional services and products – why not showcase it professionally?

Even building processes can make interesting subject matter for online content, such as this roofing project.

SABGA

SABGA Golf Open 2014

The SABGA Golf Open  field included the three SA golfers who have Protea Colours, namely Garrett Slattery (the defending gross champion, and current International Blind Golf B2 World Champion), Leon Strydom (the defending stableford champion) and Johan Kotze (the 2012 stableford winner). Ernst Conradie (who performed well in the 2013 British Blind Open) as well as the up and coming Manie Blom and Morne Els made up the local contingent. The competition was boosted by the presence of top Irish golfer Wally Roode, playing in his first SA Open event.

The gross competition was divided into the sight categories B3 (for players with a visual acuity of below 10%) and B2 (for players with a visual acuity of below 5%). This is in line with international practice, and is done in recognition of the fact that as eyesight reduces to very low levels the game becomes increasingly challenging.

I had a great workout on this day, as I ran around on the course with the players to capture them in action. It turned out one can work out a sweat on the golf course!

Property Marketing – Realtors Durbanville

One of our latest projects we did was offering Realtors International Durbanville our visual property marketing services in the form of photos and a video to help them market one of their prize houses in the Durbanville area. As it may happen, a company may have the product or service and the sales in place, but then lack certain essential marketing tools. If one can apply these tools accordingly it may have a positive effect on your sales. Please have a look at the photographs and the video and see how we went about visually displaying this property.

Fashion Photo Shoot – Roots & Fiction

Chance brought this talented fashion designer from the Netherlands across my path. After discussions, location scouting and a drink we came up with the following photo shoot for her new fashion range called Roots & Fiction. This line consists of exclusively designed, double-sided miniskirts, for the ‘flamboyant 21st century femme’. These skirts are wearable inside and out, outside for happy colours and a more naughty vibe on the inside. A big thank you to the support team who made this photo shoot possible – we had a lot of fun! Have a look at Devina’s webpage for more info: www.miauwww.com

 

 

 

 

Shameeg & Ni’shaat’s Wedding

Once upon a time there was a princess so beautiful, and adored by a handsome prince who asked her to marry him. They had a dream wedding on a sun filled day and shared their happiness with family, friends and some very cute and beautifully dressed up children. Believe it or not, we were there to capture every moment of this fairy tale wedding. Inspired by the natural grace of the couple in front of the camera, we whisked them off to different locations to show the radiance that only a newly-wed couple knows. Have a look and you’ll see what we mean.

Special thanks to Yolande Kotze from YSP who did the second shooting.

Architecture photos -Studio ABM

I had the privilege to spend a very interesting architecture photo day with the 2 architects from Studio ABM. Driving around the Boland and surrounding suburbs to document some architecture photos of work that they were involved with in the past.

Ranging from private homes to a spectacular music hall, we visited all the sites and took architecture photos for them for their architect portfolio. This is a great way to immortalize one’s work for easy showcasing to potential clients.

You can be sure to see some more brilliant work from these two architects in the near future.

Have a look at some of our similar work done for other architecture photo projects.

Blackstoneradio Durbanville

Blackstoneradio Video Launch Durbanville

Sweet Mary Jane’ is the second single of Blackstoneradio’s debut album, Out of Rock. A noticeable step away from their signature groove rock style of music, the hip-swaying, southern folk song lends a fresh new perspective into the band’s musical ingenuity. Following their national search for a leading lady in the video, Blackstoneradio found a script-perfect candidate in the form of Jacqueline Roux. As a talented singer/songwriter herself, Jacqueline performed six of her own compositions at the official video launch event.

Set in the leafy northern suburbs of Cape Town, Altydgedacht Wine Estate played host to the event with great food and drink on offer by the Eat@altydgedacht restaurant.

It was an absolute pleasure to photograph this band at this venue and I had a great time with all the lekker people and beers!

Snacks and Darling beer on tap were served to a select group of fans on a lovely spring evening on the wine farm. Jacqueline Roux is the star in the music video, but she also proved to be a promising singer/songwriter when she opened for Blackstoneradio! Next was an impressive performance from Blackstoneradio. Be sure to follow them so as to not miss their next performance!

Have a look at the video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YuyOx6vvw4 and download the song on iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/sweet-mary-jane/id683657361?i=683657480

The Pot & Spoon Pop-up

Ever heard of a pop–up restaurant?

It’s a new growing trend that started overseas and made its way to Joburg and Capetown. And now even Durbanville has its very own pop-up restaurant scene. I found myself invited to the Pot & Spoon pop-up restaurant, held at Café Ruby on the Klein Roosboom winery just outside Durbanville.

What it basically entails is that the pop-up chef moves into an established restaurant for one evening, bringing his own flair, ideas and skills to the table, while using the facilities of the venue.

The evening brought us a stunning six course meal that left the taste buds tantalized. Particularly memorable was the deconstructed cheesecake. It was accompanied by the best of Klein Roosboom’s wines, and set in a cosy and stylish atmosphere.

If you like good food, ambiance and a good time (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t?), visit The Pot and Spoon on Facebook to find out about their next event.

Namaqua

Namaqua Flowers in Bloom

My most recent project brought me to Clanwilliam close to the Namaqua region. Between work, I was lucky enough to spot some of the flowers in bloom in the region. The Namaqua land and surrounds are world famous for the lavish carpets of radiant flowers that change the entire landscape into an ocean of colours. It is truly an unbelievable sight for sore eyes and a must see for any nature lovers or travellers. The season isn’t in full bloom yet, but already the air was heavy with the fragrance of these floras. Sit back and relax and browse through these photos.

Studio ABM Photo shoot

Studio AMB was founded by two creative and professional architects who decided to team up and enter the market. Andre and Bendery combine old school with new style as their creative powers merge to form Studio ABM. Any new small business needs to enter the market with a unique image.  That’s why I visited their studio to do a photo shoot that they can use to promote and market themselves in a professional way. Andre and Bendery are spontaneous and always ready for a good laugh and we had a great time taking the shots.
