Wow, time flies! Here we are again, well into December, which means that holidays and New Year celebrations are right around the corner. How has your year been? We hope you’ve had a good one, and lined things up for an even better 2018. Life has been as exciting as ever here at Outdoor Video & Photographic. Big shout out and THANK YOU to every one of our special clients, associates, suppliers, freelancers, family and friends for contributing so much value to what is wrapping up to be a great 2017!
As always, it’s been our privilege and pleasure to provide leading-edge ground and aerial photography and videography to fulfill a host of exceptional requirements for our clients, such as major construction projects for the Barrow Group, FWJK and Fortress Income Fund, innovative corporate and commercial initiatives for the likes of Excellerate, Old Mutual Property, Nedbank, Mercantile Bank, JSE, Autobax and Tetra4, as well as epic events like the launch of the phenomenal BMG World facility and this week’s vibrant Yamaha SA cocktail party and unforgettable track day at Kyalami with international MotoGP star Maverick Vinales.
Yamaha also recently hosted our filming of instrumental gospel pianist Ntokozo Ndlovu and his band, in order to create music videos for his latest CD. Two of the tracks feature beautiful nature and wildlife footage that we shot locally and combined with highlights that we’ve captured during our 20+ years of travels in the African bush. This remains close to our hearts, so it was a treat to get away to the Kruger Park mid-year, and catch up on some wildlife filming and photography while we were there.
Our studio has also been buzzing this year, with personal branding photography and videography to help entrepreneurs, executives as well as talented models and actors to shine on camera and promote their companies or careers. This brings us to the SA Blog Awards, since it’s voting season again. You may be aware that this company website of ours www.ovpimaging.com was voted SA Best Photographic Blog winner in 2014 and runner-up in 2015 and 2016, for which we’re sincerely grateful.
This year, Dave and I agreed in January to apply ourselves more fully to the practical business of our corporate and commercial shoots here at OV&P, with less emphasis on blogging about it. At the same time, I’ve been expanding the online aspect of my personal branding photography and videography business at Naomi Estment International. With this in mind, my blogging energy has been more focused on my signature website, sharing loads of tips and techniques to make the most of your personal photo and video shoots. Hence we’re not submitting this OV&P website to the SA Blog Awards, but my site www.naomiestment.com instead.
If you feel it’s deserving to continue flying the flag for us and to win the SA Best Photographic Blog award, please click on this badge to cast your vote. Also, if you have any questions about photography or videography in general, or any suggestions for future topics that may be most helpful to you, please leave a comment below. We’d love to connect with you. THANK YOU.
In the meantime, we wish you and yours a blessed festive season and a brilliant New Year, filled with health, happiness and abundant success. Enjoy!
