What we offer

Spekboom Media are visual media experts - we create striking, beautiful images that convey hope and a sense of our shared humanity, while also clearly telling the story of your project. We also ensure that our clients are aware of the best ways to use the images we provide, both in terms of digital and print marketing, but also ethics and best practise in the humanitarian sector.

We work with media agencies and publications, communities, government departments, corporate social investment (CSI), non-profit organisations (NPO), non-governmental Organisations (NGO) and funders who want to highlight the positive impact that they are a part of creating.

Packages start at R10 000 but let’s chat and create a package that is just right for you.

Initial consultation

Before quoting or committing to a job, there will always be a consultation to establish whether we are a good fit to work together and what exactly you have in mind. We will discuss your project, your desired outcomes, the length of the job and other technical details, but this is also a good time to advise you on specific aspects of media creation such as end use, ethics, and how you want to tell your story, if you haven’t thought of these before.

Photographs

Sophie is based in the Eastern Cape but available to travel nationally and internationally to capture images that tell the story you want to share. Sophie captures real life moments in a journalistic style, or else can help you get creative to make images that tell a story. Based on the initial consultation, images will be shot with the end use in mind, whether this is print media, website banners, Instagram stories, or a social media campaign. All images will be supplied in a digital album, in high resolution and web resolution.

Sophie is also a freelance photojournalist and am available to shoot portraits and photo stories for news and feature articles.


Copy Writing

It is said that a story tells a thousand words, but honestly, the best combination is beautiful imagery and well written stories. With journalism as our base and our background, we know how to write - from informative captions, to social media copy, to in depth stories that keep you reading.


Media Strategy

If you feel unsure about the best way to use you images to their maximum benefit, we will create a media strategy plan which will give you ideas and insights into how best to use images for maximum impact on multiple platforms.
