No matter how you paint it, shooting in Cape Town is cheaper than most US and European productions by a running mile. In contention with the USD, GBP and Euro the South African Rand just goes so much further. Crunch the numbers and even the beancounters will tell you that it just makes commercial sense to use Cape Town as a destination to shoot commercial photography. However it’s not just favourable exchange rate that makes Cape Town such an attractive shoot destination.
Cape Town is cosmopolitan city that has a diverse culture, heritage and when coupled with long summer days the destination is idyllic for creating many kinds of shoots.
Closed studios, green screen studios, open air studios, dedicated shoot locations, houses, roof tops, streets, rivers, forests, savannas, deserts, beaches, dunes, city scapes, bridges, walk ways an endless list of options to match pretty much any kind of mood board or brief that can be dreamed up.
