HDG Events

Here are some BTS images of events and shows that HD Global (Profoto South Africa) attended. Feel free to contact us to find out when and where our next event will take place.

1:The new home of HD Global Trading

It would be unfair to start our Events Page without including some BTS shots of our offices which we occupied on the 1st of May 2015, which was an event in itself.  It was humble beginnings with 95% of the “hard manual labour” being done by the new guys on the block. Painting and shop fitting took up the better part of May with completion being just in time for our opening in June. Today the office looks much different with loads of Profoto products on display and some inspirational pictures on the walls. We have a fully functional service station on the premises where we can service and fully refurbish just about any Profoto equipment.

In these pictures you notice Duncan Frew with a paint roller in- hand. Needless to say those jeans will never look the same again.

2:Profoto Dealer Training with Andrea Belluso and Tommy Forsberg from Profoto AB – June 2015

In June 2015 we had our very first international dealer training event with dealers from all over South Africa attending the Silver Level PPC course. This was presented by fashion photographer Andrea Belluso. Andrea is the official trainer and brand ambassador for Profoto AB and spends most of his time shooting for high end glossy magazines and fashion houses.  We were so grateful to have an international photographer of his caliber come all the wat to SA to show us the ropes and get us all trained up.  We hope to run this event again in 2016 and may also include an en-user event for the public.  Tommy is one of the area managers from Profoto Sweden, and deals with some pretty big accounts (distributors) world wide. We are luck to have him oversee our South African market and the support from Profoto AB is second to none.

3: Nikon RAW Show – Gauteng 2015

Nikon hosted their first ever Nikon RAW show where they showcased their complete range of products together with some other industry brands. HD Global had a stand on the show and partnered with one of our Jnb dealers (Flashback Studios) to help out on the stand. Richard from FlashBack Studios was such an asset over the 3 days that the event was running with more than a decade of experience as a commercial photographer.  The guys from Nikon created a fantastic and captive environment where we could spend time with prospective clients and also engage with other manufacturers.  We look forward to Nikon’s 2016 events and hope to see all of our Gautneg based clients again soon.Nikon RAW 14: The launch of Profoto in KZN with DT Broadcast – June 2015

In June 2015 HD Global/Profoto SA partnered with DT Broadcast to open the 1st Authorised Profoto Dealer in KZN.  We had loads of guests who attended the event with live presentation and model shoots throughout the evening. We look forward to our 2016 event which is scheduled for the 6th and 7th of May 2016 as a 2- day event.  Check out DT Broadcast’s website for details on their annual Profoto event.
