A new season is upon us and we are so excited to be working on all the new briefs coming in from existing and new clients.

There are lots of new locations in Cape Town, some great new houses, surf shacks,  safari lodges and old school petrol garages (such as Inyoni Garage) featured above.

Frank has been busy with many different genres of shoots, namely Kids, (Above Luna Magazine Editorial shot by Beatrice Heydiri), Womenwear, Menswear, Homewear and Advertising.

We admit we are not the best at keeping our news page up to date, but in our defense it is due to the fact that we have just been so busy producing your wonderful shoots.

Lets get started!

Cape Town Calling…

Cape Town Calling…

So its been a busy winter and season is upon us again.  We have not had time to update you on all the wonderful shoots we have produced but our Instagram feed is now the best place for updates.

However, in the spirit of a new season we have been updating everything this side; our website, our branding, your gifts, and the Frank Guide.

Did you know Cape Town has been Voted Gourmet Capital of the world by Conde Nast.

Here are some of the culinary treats you could be sampling on your next shoot…http://insideguide.co.za/new-restaurants-in-cape-town/

 

TOO BUSY TO POST

TOO BUSY TO POST

We know, we know – it is not an excuse, but Frank is just too busy producing to update you on our news. As soon as we can update you on all our exciting shoots we will.

Watch this space…

The White Company Interiors

Frank has been working exclusively with The White Company Interiors Team in Cape Town for 9 Years. And we Love them! We love the product, the concepts, the props, the food and are always proud of the final images.

This season we had the pleasure of working with the talented Anders Schonneman as photographer and the lovely Elkie Brown as stylist.

With a small flexible team they always manage to effortlessly create the flawless alfresco scenarios; the tempting dinner table, the perfect garden party and the immaculate white bed. One day I might just have to jump into it!

M&S Mens

Marks and Spencer Summer 2015

We had the pleasure of working with M&S again this year to produce their Holidayshop & Style and Living Editorial stories for Womenswear and Menswear Summer 2015.

Shot and styled by the Dream Team, Eric Frideen and Niki Brodie. We shot for 5 days, in 5 different locations including an adventurous trip up the west coast. Great Results as always.

Little White Company

 

We have had a lovely season with The Little White Company visiting us three times for four different shoots. Together we have shot for Spring, Summer and Autumn.
Sometimes shooting for lifestyle, sometimes shooting for E-commerce, sometimes on Location and sometimes in a studio.

We have had a lot of fun, working with photographers Tim Marsella and Casey Bertie, there has never been a dull moment (A few loud ones, some very funny ones, but definitely not dull ones).

It is just great working on repeat shoots for the same client during one season, as we get to know the clients likes and dislikes, the favourite; kids, locations and crew.
It just makes for a great production all round.

Bring on Winter.

Johnnie B – All Aboard For Summer

 

We are so proud of the latest Summer 15 Johnnie B campaign shot by the talented Rick Truscott in Kommetjie, Cape Town.
Getting such natural shots from a bunch of teens is not easy and again the Johnnie B team again makes it look effortless. We LOVE working this with clever Boden Team, with months of pre-production, nothing is left to chance. That means on the day we can focus on being at exactly the right place, at the right time, with the right weather and make sure everyone is REALLY well looked after!

The season that keeps on giving.

Its not really an excuse not to post and update you on what we have been up to but Frank has been VERY busy. This season has been non-stop for us since September and is still going strong. In September we expanded our small team, employing the much loved Gui full time, as Producer and Production manager. Office Angel Lydia also joined us full time working hard supporting the producers.

The increase in our team enabled us to work with some lovely new clients (Boden Fashion Tescos F&F, Esprit, Pierre Lang to name a few), while still servicing our loyal existing clients (Marks and Spencer, The White Company, Mini Boden). Many of our existing clients such as Boden and The White Company visited us at least 5 times this season, creating strong production partnerships between us and their teams and seamless production.

Working with new and old clients introduced us to some new photographers Colette De Barros, Matthew Eades, Heather Favell and Donja Pitsch. We also enjoyed Welcomimg back ‘old’ faces, Rick Truscott, Anders Schonneman, Tim Marsella for many shoots.

So no more excuses, we are finally finding the time to update the Blog, although with more shoots planned up until July, it may just take a little longer while we concentrate on what we do best.

Frank Produces Mini Boden & Johnny B Aut / Win 2014

Frank productions was delighted to be contacted directly by Boden to produce their Autumn / Winter 2014 Shoots for Mini Boden and Johnny B. Proud to be working on such an established British brand, Frank set to work sourcing British looking locations and props, including 20 bags of autumn oak leaves.

Frank recreated a mad hatters tea party for the minis with a host of animals and brought in fake rain for the Teens!

We definitely finished our SS14 season off with a bang. Whoever said don’t work with children and Animals – frank loved it, we had great fun & cant wait to see the pics when they launch this Autumn. We will keep you updated.

Thanks Boden we look forward to seeing you again.
