RapidStudio – Photo and Film Expo 2016

RapidStudio Up In Lights

The RapidStudio Stand

The Photo & Film Expo is Africa’s premier industry event, drawing huge crowds from across the continent and across the professional spectrum.

RapidStudio was front and centre for this amazing event and we brought with us a spirit of collaboration and knowledge sharing. Not only did we share our expertise in printing and photography, but we were also handing out 50% vouchers to a very interested crowd. What a way to kick-start a printing project! We set up a demonstration stand for a hands-on, tactile showcase of our products. Oh… And there were free cupcakes too! They were out-of-this-world delicious.

Some delicious cupcakes
RapidStudio hosted a lounge for show goers to relax and enjoy a break from exploring the huge number of stalls. We had ultra comfy furniture from Sevens, complimentary recharge stations from Richarge, and even free massages from Mowana Spa! The RapidStudio Lounge was so well appointed it might have been confused with a scene from a James Bond movie…with cupcakes. Did we mention the free cupcakes?

We were in a hosting mood and sponsored a stage too. RapidStudio ambassadors including AlexanderSmith, Chantal Drummond, Michael Tucker, and other industry experts gave free talks. It was gratifying to receive so many compliments from a broad spectrum of interests. We are so proud of our ambassadors sharing their professional knowledge.

RapidStudio also sponsored a huge gallery to showcase two outstanding and worthy photographic initiatives; EveryDay Education and Unequal Scenes. Johnny Miller of Unequal Scenes was an engaging guide for the gallery of images and was appreciated by the many visitors.

The expo was an epic four-day experience packed solid with activities, events and knowledge sharing. Not everything was serious though. There was a tonne of laughter to be had with the yellow Morphs, who ran about entertaining visitors. The Morphs made light hearts and big smiles for photos at RapidStudio’s great backdrops and Instagram frames. Winning us "Most Interactive Stand" 1st prize once again.

Team Building @ Gold Reef City

Early Morning on Wednesday the 19th of August, I asked my flu if we could have "THE TALK", I’m sure there and then, it knew it was time for us to part ways. There was no way I was gonna miss Gold Reef City, just the week before someone asked me “when was the last time you did something for the first time?” and I couldn’t answer them. I was ready to take on the roller coasters.


We’ve had so many team building sessions in the past but this was by far the best for me and for most of my colleagues. We were divided into 4 teams, Red, Blue, Green and Black for an Amazing Race type of challenge. I was in the Black Team, we wanted to win but we all decided that having fun was important too! We watched a 15 minute 4d movie, which was absolutely incredible but then, it was time for thrill ride number 1, the Tornado, just looking at it made my tummy turn and I unfortunately decided to sit it out, watching my team mates being tossed and turned around like they weighed nothing at all ma…

Mobile Photography Tips From the Pros - Part 1

Love The One You're With
This two part series is packed with pro tips from South Africa’s talented professionals and outstanding instagrammers who use mobile cameras in a pinch with outstanding results.

A famous saying among photographers is that the best camera is the one you have with you. That mobile phone you have in your hand is a powerful tool for capturing and sharing magic moments. You don’t need a pro camera to capture brilliant shots. A mobile may land you those quick creative shots you’d miss if you went running for another camera.  We’ve got proof!

Hidden Light Revealed

I noticed the steam from my shower revealing the morning shafts of light through the blinds. A fleeting moment captured with the camera closest to me... my iPhone.
