Congrats to the team at Nomadik Tents on the record number of stretch tents that they set up for the recent Discovery 702 Walk The Talk event, held at Marks Park Sports Club in Johannesburg, A world first, these tents spanned 13,000+ sq m and took two-and-a-half days to erect on behalf of HSP (Harford Sports Promotions), who did an outstanding job of managing the event.
We were there to capture the action in still images and video, including an exceptional time-lapse sequence taken from the roof of a nearby building. This sequence incorporated 2,250 photos, which combine to create an impactful way to convey a time-consuming subject. Take a look at our video and contact us if you have questions about how we can help you capture your next project or event.

Our freezing Joburg winter served up icy sunrise and sunset temperatures, but they were worth the special light of golden hour. The feature photo on this post is an evening shot of the main hospitality field, getting ready for action. As you can see, this demonstrates the dramatic effect of an aerial viewpoint, which is another speciality that we offer for photography and videography. For more fabulous photos, please view our Facebook albums: Nomadik Tents – Record Setup and Nomadik Tents – Ready for Action.
On Sunday 27th July, the day of the event, the tents accommodated no less than 55,000 people and 2,000 dogs, a further record-breaking number. It was amazing to see so many people and their countless vehicles at our favourite park where we walk our two dogs. They would definitely have been confused by all the crowds descending on their doggie heaven!
Being 2004, this event celebrated the 20th anniversary of South Africa’s democracy, encouraging participants to vote with their feet in support of solidarity and freedom. Well done again to all concerned, including Nomadik Tents, HSP, the visionaries behind the event, partner organisations and of course every one of the participants and their four-legged friends. Now it’s time to kick back, relax and look forward to Walk The Talk 2015.
