A FRESH ANGLE ON PHOTOGRAPHY
NATIONAL BASE AND TRAVEL
Our team of experienced photographers are spread across South Africa in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and the Garden Route. To cover sites and events in remote locations or smaller towns throughout the country we arrange travel. We also shoot for international clients in locations around the world from time to time.
Some of our past projects have required things like: dozens of shoots at locations all over Gauteng while coordinating venues and models and various photographers to get the shots; or shooting events taking place in several cities at the same time and delivering for press release immediately after the event.
In short we are well positioned in the major cities and experienced at going the distance to get the shot.
IN STUDIO OR ON SITE
We will suggest the most practical and cost effective solution for all of the shots you need. That may mean setting up a temporary portrait studio in the boardroom at your offices and then documenting your operations process; or setting up a shoot in studio with products or models; or even arranging appropriate sets and locations to tell your story while managing property and model releases if necessary.
Surprise us with your brief, we look forward to creating a solution to turn it into reality, on deadline and within budget!
A VARIETY OF SPECIALISTS AND STYLES
Avo produces photography that captures real character and emotion, communicating a powerful message about your business or brand. No two businesses are the same, each one has it’s own unique offering and it’s own specific project and operational requirements. Avo creates tailor made photography solutions that fit your deadlines and budget. Our team includes specialists in different types of photography: portraits, food, decor, lifestyle, industrial, product photography to mention a few; and also different levels of experience and styles.
Whether you need one amazing holding image for your billboard on the N1; or a thousand low resolution product shots for your webstore ready to upload before you launch in 3 weeks time; or simply some decent photographs of your end-of-year event… get in touch with us. One of our commercial photographers will be happy to discuss your ideas and help turn them into solid executable concepts.

EXPLORE OUR WORK
LARGE PROJECTS AND PRODUCTIONS
In addition to capturing and processing the images required we often get involved in managing an entire photography production. Sometimes we handle video projects too, in conjunction with our videography partners.
Handling large productions generally includes things like: helping determine client requirements; conceptualising and setting up shot lists; generating project plans and detailed production schedules; managing models and releases; arranging locations and other artists for makeup and styling.
We have also created some pretty good creative proposals for some very impressive clients. We are quite proud of how those have been received and executed.
SMALL BUSINESS SOLUTIONS
We have been fortunate to work with some really big clients but a good portion of our work month to month is done for small businesses and individuals. We understand how to be smart and provide value while working within a limited budget. We will be able to make practical suggestions about what type of photographer we provide and how to arrange logistics so that you get the most out of your money. We work to a standard, so we don’t cut corners that will affect the quality of the work we deliver.
ECOMMERCE PRODUCT SHOTS
The last few years have seen a steady increase in requests for product shots for online stores. Sometimes the requirement is for consistently positioned products on a white background; sometimes it is clothing on models; or highly styled set-ups. Usually this type of work has an aspect of “bulk handling” because there can be thousands of products on a store. We will be able to suggest the most appropriate approach and deliver images at the size and format you specify ready to use online.
We have also handled a lot of requests to produce photography for Instagram feeds and social media use. These type of solutions require a special consideration that depends on how we group shoots together and how regularly things are released.
A stylist is someone who works closely with a photographer or creative director to create thoughtful, provoking images. The Art of Styling is about being a master composer working with light, texture, symphony, colour and space to help create a good image. Specialist stylists are available for lifestyle, decor, food, still life and fashion. The service includes prop sourcing and production as needed.
