Welcoming 2024

Happy New Year to you and yours! As we wave goodbye to 2023 and embrace the promise of 2024 there’s a buzz in the air – a sense of vibrant possibilities and new adventures waiting to be captured. May it be a brilliant year for us all.

At Outdoor Video & Photographic, we’re reflecting with gratitude on the exciting journey of 2023. It was a whirlwind of creativity, technical advancement and lots photo and video shoots, including ground based and aerial, in our studio and on location.

Heartfelt THANK YOU to all our valued clients. Every shoot held highlights for us, too many to mention, but here are a few short videos to share a glimpse and to spark ideas for you to promote your products and services in compelling ways.

To start with, our Aerial Videography Showreel incorporates some of the stunning properties that we’ve filmed and photographed:

A few of these showcase the exceptional work of Rouan Theart at LTA Architects, such as this super cool restaurant in Paarl:

We loved creating a series of videos for Cape Aqua, to help promote their bottled spring water, one of the purest on the market:

It was a ton of fun to capture unique, high vibe exercise classes for DS Bungee Fitness, featuring their fabulous team and studio:

We were privileged to film the R/V Roger Revelle departing from Cape Town for Scripps Institute of Oceanography at UC San Diego:

And closer to home, we’ve been capturing the impressive progress of construction here at the visionary Devonbosch development where our studio is based. Stay tuned for our time lapse video on completion, but here’s a taste of building in progress:

In addition to many other wonderful shoots, we had the great pleasure of creating a special portfolio of images and videos for Knysna Tourism. The feature pic at the top of this post was taken on a sunrise shoot there. Watch this space for more about that!

Stepping into 2024, we’re filled with anticipation as new adventures beckon. To all our clients, associates, family, friends and fellow adventurers out there, here’s to a fantastic 2024. Let’s make it an amazing year to remember – one frame at a time.

Winelands Anniversary

It’s been a year since we moved from Johannesburg to the magnificent Western Cape Winelands and we feel so privileged to live and work here, especially when we get to film and photograph breath-taking properties, including farms, lifestyle developments, homes and historical buildings. Shooting property is one of our specialties, in part because Dave and I both certified as estate agents years ago, so we understand the requirements and have insight into what works to highlight key features of properties.

We love this work as it draws on a number of our core skills, including my diploma in interior decorating, which contributes to shooting interiors, and Dave’s extensive experience and skill as a licensed aerial drone pilot. In addition to recently filming and photographing the various buildings and vineyards on a beautiful wine farm, he captured a stunning time lapse sequence of the sunset from a spectacular vantage point. Here are a few behind the scenes pics to give you an idea of what we did:

Our interior and exterior, aerial and ground based images and video combine powerfully to create compelling portfolios that assist owners in showcasing their properties and promoting their associated businesses and services, or else support the sales objectives of appointed estate agents. Depending on the specific purpose of each shoot, the content can be enhanced with our product and lifestyle photography and videography too, shot strategically in our studio or on location in enchanting settings.

We’re also passionate about crafting impactful promo videos that leverage top quality, evocative content with captivating scripting and professional voice overs that convey the essence of our clients’ vision and message, while effectively demonstrating what they deliver, because ‘showing’ prospective customers what you do is so much more meaningful than ‘telling’ them. Contact us today if you’d like a no-obligation conversation to explore inspiring ideas to showcase your business or property.

Special shoutout and thanks to all our clients and associates who’ve contributed to our successful business transition to the Winelands, and to our wonderful family and friends for all they’ve done to help us establish our new home here!

Welcome to our New Studio

How has the first half of 2022 treated you? We hope it’s been meaningful, happy and successful. Here at Outdoor Video & Photographic, epic change has been underway, as we’ve moved our home and business from Johannesburg to Devon Valley near Stellenbosch. Having lived for 25 years in the same house, which included our home-based studio, we completely underestimated the upheaval associated with moving cities. It’s been a challenging time, but also filled with adventure.

We’re now living on a beautiful olive farm and are delighted to say that our brand new studio, just down the hill from the farm, is open and ready to make magic with you in the Devonbosch development on Bottelary Road. One of the first shoots we’ve done here was to capture the launch of Goodness Grows, the village store at Devonbosch. Take a look at our short video that shares the flavour of the event, with a captivating backing track by the talented musician Forest, who played live at the launch:

We’ve also photographed our first clients at Studio 01C, Devonbosch, where we’d love to welcome you too! At the top of this post and below are two pics of our studio, which offers plenty of creative options for personal, product and promotional photo and video shoots. We can also combine this with location and aerial photography and filming as you can see in the video above.

Photo & Video Studio

Of course, we’re still serving our valued clients in Johannesburg and around the country, so have been frequently flying for photo and video shoots as well. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss how we can help you to promote your business with compelling photos and videos that showcase you and your work. We’d love to assist!
