Consumer Goods, Fashion and Retail
Synovate, one of the world’s leading market intelligence companies, evaluates the level of customer service of their clients as well as the client’s competition. Fieldworkers are tasked to pose as regular customers whilst evaluating the level of service, product knowledge and the overall store appearance. Sometimes hidden cameras and/or voice recorders are used to capture the store and consultants for company valuations.
For some clients, a candid camera set-up was used to tape their sales personel in action. These tapes were then used for bonus evaluations and training purposes.

Volunteer, November 2007 - November 2007
Habitat for Humanity is an international NGO devoted to building decent and affordable housing. In November 2007 they built 12 new homes in Mfuleni on the Cape flats. I teamed up with a few friends on this project. It took us a week to build a 2-bedroom house for a single mother and her three kids.
AV Technician, June 2008 - August 2011
The Audio Visual team is responsible for everything that goes on screen during the church service or production - camera feeds, song lyrics, slides, graphics and videos. During my time with them, I have grown in all these roles and assisted in setup and pack-down at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) from 2008 to late 2010, when they moved to a permanent facility.
Photographer, November 2009 - present
As part of the photography team at church, my role is to cover some of the events, such as the annual Colour Women's Conference, Encounter Youth Conference, guest speakers and more.
Videographer, June 2008 - present
My interest in videography must have come from my passion for photography. During 2009 and 2010 I filmed club rugby in Durbanville and Parow over weekends. Later I filmed video footage for a few charities, including Orphan Care Foundation in Westlake and Sisanda Foundation's FunDaytion project.
Photographer, March 1999 - present
From a young age I have been fascinated with a camera. I started out with a small Kodak, taking pictures on school trips and camps. More recently, I have upgraded to a digital camera and take pictures in my spare time.
"Jaco has proved to be very reliable and he is a big help. He takes his own initiative while at the same time being submissive to his leaders. He is always friendly and diligent and has learned to work under pressure very well. " - 2008
"Jaco has been serving on a technical team as an Audio Visual technician, as well as in the role of directing a live video feed for a large multi faceted church in Cape Town.
His responsibilities have included the setting up of video and projection equipment, as well as operating video cameras and vision mixers, and other advanced video processing equipment. The position calls for not only competent and trained operators; but also level headed, reliable people – all of which Jaco has proved himself to be.
I find him to be a polite, respectful person, who is always willing to help; and freely offers assistance in any dimension. " - 2009
