HL Hall & Sons

It’s quite hard to believe, but 2019 marks our 10 year Lowveld aniversary! Back in 2009 we came to nelspruit not knowing what to expect, our aim was to establish a visual content company that provided clients with the highest quality media content. It was a big step into the unkown, but with extremely hard work and innovation we’re quite proud of the client base that we’ve built up in our exciting story telling journey.

One of our core values in our our company has always been good communication and building lasting relationships with our clients. One such client has been HL Hall & Sons Ltd. a company who we’ve worked with on a regular basis over the last few years. The Halls trademark forms an integral part of the history and development of the Nelspruit and Lowveld region. They have been farming since 1890 and it is always a joy to work with a company that has such a rich history. It is quite inspirational to see the work that has been done on their farms and in their business. 

Over the years Phonix capture has assisted Halls on numerous projects, by providing them with high quality media content. From marketing imagery to website stills. Photographing their corporate social investment initiatives and even a trip to europe to showcase their work abroad. Most of our work for them has been to showcase the work that they do thop their consumers. From ground level up. This meant that we litteraly photographed and captured video content on farms in packhouses, right through to board room meetings and distribution centrs in Europe.

As a brand Phonix Capture has grown immensely over the last decade , and it is companies such as Halls that assisted us in this journey, by challenging us with regular interesting projects that improved our professional skills in the visual content industry. We are to have Halls as one of our main clients, an we are excited to see where our relationship with Halls will have us firing shutters, and Time lapsing sunrises!
