Shooting in Paradise

OV&P Team Shooting at Cloud Nine in Sedgefield

Have you been to Knysna – jewel of the spectacular Garden Route here in South Africa? If not, allow us to introduce you to a taste of the magic that’s in store for you when you do! We had an exceptional experience shooting a special portfolio of images and videos for Visit Knysna, to help promote tourism to this enchanting region, which is a paradise for bird enthusiasts.

From Fynbos, estuary and riverine to montane and coastal environments, each setting offers a unique glimpse into the avian world, and a host of activities for nature lovers. You can explore hiking trails through ancient forests, paddle along serene waterways, go golfing, cycling, surfing, boating or whale watching, relax on the beach or simply bask in the beauty of this natural wonderland.

It was a treat for our team to create this captivating video, which we hope you enjoy as much as we enjoyed creating it:

Our second video shares a delicious array of culinary delights in and around Knysna, including inviting restaurants and coffee shops to suit all sorts of tastes, local markets, as well as beer and gin distilleries, amongst breath-taking views and laid back settings:

You’ll see that we’ve combined awesome aerial perspectives with inspired ground-based filming and editing to showcase enticing places and experiences that convey the essence of Knysna and surrounds. Special shoutout and thanks to all the wonderful people who feature in these videos, starting with Mark Dixon in the birding video, who is a highly experienced and knowledgable local guide.
