Nissan is our longest-standing client thanks to four years of launch events. We’ve produced launch content for several models and events over this period. Content entailed photography and videography with focus on quick-turnaround during launches and even motorsport events such as the Knysna Hillclimb.
Veralda Schmidt, Media Relations Manager at Nissan South Africa says,
“I have known Calvin Fisher since 2006. I first encountered him as motoring journalist and later a deputy editor and finally as editor of one of South Africa’s leading automotive titles. And then life happened, and all of a sudden Calvin had to carve out a new path when the publisher closed the magazine from one month the next. It was then that the Calvin Fisher I know today emerged like a Phoenix. Always one with a learning, entrepreneurial and creative spirit, Calvin soon turned a photography and content creation hobby into a business. Nissan Group of Africa acquired Calvin’s service at numerous events and product launches. This included product and event photography. AV productions for use on social media as well as other channels and content dissemination to media for immediate use. Lead times were mostly very short with content often needed within the hour. Calvin never disappointed, in fact he excelled and we recommended his service to other departments and external contacts. At Nissan events, such as the Simola Hill Climb, Festival of Motoring or Nissan specific events, Calvin integrates with the Nissan team seamlessly and becomes a multi-tasking team member. He easily puts down the camera and joins the logistics team albeit it as driver or car washer. Calvin works long hours and does not rest before the last video is uploaded or last images edited and distributed. Calvin’s cost structure is competitive and realistic, he does not see a budget as a target, but would rather save where he can, but would never compromise quality or his reputation. At times where I could not be somewhere in person, I could rest assured that Calvin is an extension of my arm. His excellent people skills ensures that he can comfortably interact at grassroots and executive level, both with internal and external stakeholders from all nationalities. Apart from my South African colleagues and principals, Calvin also interacted without any difficulty with colleagues and principals from around the world. Calvin Fisher and the Pandabomb team are key members of my team when it comes to successful event and product photography, social media content and production.
