Nederburg Wine Launch at Kitchen Cowboys

Nederburg Wine Launch at Kitchen Cowboys

Image Solutions Photography and Design was asked to be the photographer for the media launch of Nederburg’s new wine. The name of the new wine is called “The Beautiful Lady” and one would not be mistaken in describing this wine as beautiful indeed.

The launch was held at the infamous Kitchen Cowboys Canteen in Salt River under the leadership of famous Masterchef judge Pete Goffe-Wood. This culinary “canteen” is a place where the average joe can hone their skills and become a master of the culinary arts under the helpful guidance of Pete himself.

As the photographer for the event, I was especially keen on capturing the moments where the food was being prepared and then of course the reaction on the faces of the guests as they sample the food paired with the wonderful selection of wines on offer from Nederburg. The day was focused around the pairing of the fine wines from Nederburg and the delicate flavours and cuts of pork prepared by Pete Goffe-Wood. Razvan Macici, the host for the day and also the wine maker of Nederburg, was very precise in his choice for wines with the food.

It was indeed a privilage to work with such talent and style in the kitchen and the guests sampling the food and wine on offer. For a rainy day, the vibe and atmosphere inside of the Kitchen Cowboys Canteen was as warm as a summers day.

Thanks goes out to Marlise Potgieter from DKC for organising the event and asking Image Solutions Photography and Design to do the photography. Thanks also goes out to Jani-Mari Swart from DKC for helping out.

Jayson Jones – Universum Top 100

Jayson Jones – Universum Top 100

Universum Top 100 tasked Image Solutions Photography and Design to be the photographer and capture Jayson Jones in his work environment as part of their Top 100 employer branding program.

Jayson works for Shoprite Checkers at their head office in Brackenfell as a Graduate and Bursary Scheme Manager. His team and him thus oversee all of those who would benefit from bursary and graduate schemes. What a wonderful way to give back to the community who support you!

Being the photographer for the shoot was indeed a fun affair. Jayson was so relaxed and comfortable in front of the lens that it was a great pleasure and of course a wonderful privilige to be his photographer. Jayson exudes a certain kind of confidence that is sorely lacking these days. He carries himself well and I can see that he is respected by those around him.

The day the shoot took place there were intermittend rain and as a photographer, I was extremely concerned about the shoot as it would not have been very successful had I not had the chance to photograph him outside in a more natural environment as well. Luckily the skies opened up and we had a ball of a time. Thanks Jayson. You were a great subject to photograph and you have an awesome smile!

Distell War on Waste Winners

Distell War on Waste Winners

Distell recently asked Image Solutions Photography and Design to be the photographer for the final presentation and prize giving that was held at their head office in Stellenbosch.

A while ago Distell launched an internal “War on Waste” within the company to see where the company can save money and increase profitibility within the structures of the company. Many employees teamed up in their own various fields of expertise to see where they could wage war on wastage and as time progresses, these teams implemented their savings and ideas. This final presentation was the culmination of a long process to get to the final three teams and they were tasked to present their savings to the board of directors who would then choose one team as the final winners.

All three teams ended up with a prize for each individual and the winners received a little extra in the form of a 46″ LED Flatscreen TV! Not a bad prize at all.

As photographer for the prize giving, it was wonderful to see the teams work together in their goal of waging a war against the daily wastage that was ultimately costing Distell a lot of money. These cost saving methods and implementations taught those that took part in the War on Waste some valuable lessons that I am sure will stay with them for their whole lives.

Being the photographer for the prize giving was truly an experience and an eye opener to see individuals come together for the greater good and help Distell and the environment.

Good job Distell!
