I was sponsored recently to go along to the iThemba Camp in KZN, and shoot them a promotional video. It was such a great weekend and I have always found what they do so inspiring. The challenge was to shoot something which would make you feel what these camps are like for the kids, rather than the traditional promotional video which just fires info at you. I shot with x2 Canon 550D’s (Prime lenses 24mm, 35mm and 50mm) and a Go Pro which I used for the bus shots and the underwater footage. It was edited and graded in Final Cut Pro X (which as a first time FCP user I’m actually enjoying). The music was purchased from SmartSound through Express Tracks. Enjoy.

“We had a look at the website and watched a small video where children had been taken to the sea for the first time in their lives. Myself and my team were close to tears, four grown men sitting around a computer (and other luxuries we take for granted) watching children relish the pleasure of an opportunity they couldn’t have had without iThemba.”

After shooting recently for Freestyle of Newhaven I had the pleasure of shooting a promotional video for one of their showrooms: Highly Sprung on Tottenham Court Rd. Check them out.

“Dealing with and working with Sean on my project was a great experience from conception to delivery. Faultless service along with astute advise made it a pleasure to deal with such a creative and knowledgable photographer… and also a great guy. Could not recommend him more highly.”

Steve Black, Highly Sprung

Yuppiechef runs an initiative where they teach children to cook and get involved in the Kitchen. Recently we travelled to Joburg and got to spend the day at the Foodiction kitchens in Bryanston. There we spent the day teaching some bright young stars the ins and outs of basic cooking. I shot everything on DSLRs and a GoPro.

I shot this promotional video for Yuppiechef.com. It was all shot in one (early) morning on Muizenburg Beach Front using a Canon 550D with a 50mm f1.4, and 24mm f2.8. We made an attempt to ride the fine line between drama and humour and bring across this great company’s sense of fun and quirkiness. The video made a bit of a splash in the local media being discussed on Jon Cherry’s radio spot and being flighted on eTV’s satellite channel.
