We shot at a stunning wine bar in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. It sits along the famous “Stanley Street” strip in Richmond Hill. They offer all sorts of wines and platters. Here is their video profile!

Tjing Tjing


No Comments

One of Cape Town’s favourite night clubs, Tjing Tjing is a rooftop bar located just off Longstreet, Cape Town.

We got to shoot on an absolutely packed night!

It was pumping and the video came out exceptionally.

I love their colour scheme and ‘attic’ feel.

The owner is friendly and professional and I can really recommend hiring this place out as a venue for a birthday party, corporate function or business meeting.

It has a festive atmosphere and shooting their official video profile was a dream.

I enjoyed editing this and doing the voice over particularly because I enjoy the venue so much and I wanted to do Ilse Koekemoer (owner)  justice on her fabulous club!

I’m very blessed in that, through the shoots we do for Skybok, I get to travel to so many different places, meet so many different people and – best of all – see amazing things. I’m remembering now back to a place we filmed in Cape Town called Vovo Telo. It’s a trendy little bar at the waterfront and they are really well-known for their coffees and pastries. I also love their pizzas and artisan breads. I’ve realised that the coffee culture truly has grown both here and internationally. On the day we filmed their video profile, I just stuck to a peach iced tea. I love them and BOS is my new favourite make! How about you? Are you a coffee fiend?

Shooting the video profile of this divine coffee shop and restaurant – just off Longstreet in Cape Town, South Africa – was a pleasure!

It shares the same owner as Tjing Tjing rooftop bar, which is located above it.

I can personally recommend their cappuccinos!

An all-day brasserie, pantry and event space, this is really a nice place to host a function you’re having.

Breakfasts, lunches and afternoon nibbles are what you can expect to find here.

I love the upstairs function areas – very chic and quirky.

I’ve always heard stories about The Rat & Parrot in Grahamstown, South Africa.

But I never believed them until I saw for myself the raucous behaviour that goes on amongst its devoted patrons – 90% of them students from nearby Rhodes University!

Our ‘Crew’ for the night!

Some of the drunk students we captured on film are hilarious and absolutely perfect to truly capture the atmosphere and essence of what you can expect here!

We had so much fun and it was an honour shooting their profile for them.

Everyone there was game and put their best foot forward when the camera was rolling…………. Thank you!

Algoa FM is the the biggest commercial radio station from the Garden Route to the Wild Coast on 94 to 97fm.

I love the place. It’s chic & fresh and it felt rejuvenating to walk through the station filming.

We got to meet one of their most popular DJs, Lance Du Plessis, and what a fantastic guy! Easy-going and professional, he does a great job on air and has a successful reputation and a big following here in the Bay.

Everything went very smoothly on the day…. we got Lance doing his show and also some really nice shots around the station.

We didn’t get to shoot their boardroom as there was a meeting there on the day, but you can check out my blog post HERE for some snaps of it as well as some snaps I took around the station while we shot.

In my opinion everyone working there is fun-loving and hard-working.

I love the position of the station….The Boardwalk here in PE….it’a a very beautiful complex right on the beachfront. It must be a fantastic place to go to work every day! They also have a very cool website – check it out by clicking HERE.

Cape To Cuba

With Cuban-inspired cuisine and its famous “Che Bar”, Cape-To-Cuba is a popular restuarant to tourists and certainly to a lot of locals in Kalk Bay!

Only a 30 minute drive from Cape Town, it’s always a festive destination.

Shooting a video profile for them was an absolute delight, as their colourful interior set a very fun and vibrant tone for their video.

I loved the Cuban theme with all its decor indoors & outdoors… and I can personally vouch for their Mojitos!

Apparently Che Guevara mixed the first one ever made there himself!

“North Americans don’t understand… that our country is not just Cuba; our country is also humanity.” -Fidel Castro

It’s definitely a good place for a delicious meal or a just a total party :)
