Each year embodies its own special story, be it a vibrant collage featuring our earliest memories discovering the fabric of life – like the way marshmallows taste melted over flames – or the less whimsical chapters of adulthood, when focus and purpose tend to redirect our attention from the scent of fresh roses on the breeze. Consistently though, our senses contribute colour and texture, providing endless inspiration for the subjects we capture. In line with this, a continuous thread for us since launching Outdoor Video & Photographic in January 2001 has been the flavour of adventure that infuses our work.
We are sincerely grateful for this and, most importantly, we are constantly mindful that our ongoing success is thanks to the deeply valued support of every one of our clients – corporate, commercial and individual – so a very special THANK YOU to you all.
2014 has been as exciting as ever, from the wild landscape of the Kruger National Park where we covered our national Safari Guide of the Year competition for the second time, to the heart of Africa’s financial hub, where we’ve captured historic events for the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and show-cased the likes of the iconic Sandton penthouse at Katherine & West for the Barrow Group.
Our aerial adventures have also ranged far and wide, such as filming and photographing exceptional sites for Capital Property Fund and a unique time-lapse sequence of the Nomadic Tents record set-up at Jo’burg’s Walk the Talk event. Another landmark annual event that we covered again for Informa Life Sciences was the Africa Health Exhibition and Congress, a leading healthcare expo by international standards.
Towards the end of the year, a particular highlight has been creating the summer 2014 Yamaha SA TV Advert, which entailed many amazing contributions from the entire cast and crew. Heartfelt thanks again to them, as well as each and every one of our valued OV&P clients, associates and suppliers. Because of you all, our 2014 journey has been unforgettable, in the best possible way. Here’s to an even more phenomenal 2015 for us all!
