We shot Chart Rose Farm’s video profile over the weekend. It’s a divine coffee terrace and rose picking farm in Constantia, Cape Town. As the only place in the Cape Peninsula where you can select and pick your own roses, Chart Farm offers a unique experience for visitors. The Coffee Terrace serves teas, cakes, breakfasts and lunches. Along with the magnificent views of the Constantia Valley, it’s a great meeting place. Open daily from 9:00am – 4:30pm, the farm stall alongside the terrace offers fresh farm produce (in season), including lemons, limes, grapes, chestnuts and vegetables.

Wakaberry


No Comments

I love shooting fun & interesting places, which is why a quirky frozen yoghurt bar in Newlands, Cape Town, peaked my interest!

A relatively new brand in South Africa, they have quickly become a very popular hangout spot for both students & professionals alike. It’s a great place to hang out with friends, and I was so pleased to be involved in shooting their video profile for them.

50 froyo’s and a few brain-freezes later, we are happy with the finished product! It was a lot of fun & we’ll definitely be going back for more of the good stuff!

Wakaberry is a unique and interactive self-service, soft-serve frozen yoghurt bar; established in Durban, May 2011. We offer only the best 100% REAL frozen yoghurt which is SUPER LOW IN FAT! The froyo flavours vary from store to store, but customers can expect a wide variety including classics like Strawberry, Vanilla, Mixed Berry and English Toffee and quirkier taste sensations like Green tea, Pomegranate, Kiwi and Watermelon.

SAMREC


No Comments

I’ve always had a thing for animals. Especially wild, endangered or hurt ones.

Along the coast in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, lies the “South African Marine Bird Rehabilitation and Education Centre”. It’s also known as SAMREC.

We shot their video profile for them and I just remember thinking what a beautiful home and haven the team at SAMREC has created for these birds they find washed up and hurt on PE’s beaches.

The centre’s purpose isn’t just to rescue and rehabilitate, but to also inform and educate the public through their different programs.Tour our marine rehab and education centre and experience nature through sight, sound and touch.

I personally love the sea. I love places near the water, and when they offer light meals and drinks to go with the view, I know I’ve struck gold!

Die Walskipper” is a lovely beach bar & restaurant situated along the coast in South Africa’s Jeffrey’s Bay.

The restaurant is situated on Clapton’s Beach between Jeffreys Bay and Aston Bay where “locals” and visitors can enjoy a mouth-watering  array of seafood together with other South African dishes cooked to perfection on the coals.

Prime


No Comments

Grahamstown is certainly a town in South Africa well-known for its nightlife. It’s been called a ‘student village’ as it houses the popular Rhodes University, so it’s no wonder there are countless bars, pubs and nightclubs to keep its young learners entertained!

We shot many bars, pubs & nightclubs while there, one of them being “Prime” at 63 New Street.

Prime offers the latest upmarket and trendy nightclub experience in Grahamstown. Previously known as Equilibrium (Est. 1999) and comprehensively revamped in Feb 2012, Prime has been providing the best in local, national and international talents to Grahamstown and the Eastern Cape for the past decade.

We had a lot of fun shooting this, and it’s definitely got us wanting to go back to Grahamstown soon!
