About Our Campaigns.
The safety and well being for both our models and animals in our campaigns has always been Young Enough’s top priority.
The photos we use in our advertising including wild animals were made in cooperation with Union Pictures, one of the leading Animal Training companies in South Africa. They have been supplying trained wild, exotic and domestic animals to the Film and Television Industry since 1987. They are members of both the Animal Keepers Association of Africa and Paazab and have a great working relationship with the Conservation Authorities as well as the Animal Welfare Associations.
Animal wrangler Luke Cornell is the owner of Union Pictures. He owns and lives on the farm with his family both human and animal. In addition to being a trainer, Luke has been a commercials 1st Assistant Director (AD) for 14 years, thus bringing great insight into the marriage of animals and camera. This makes working with the animals much easier for both sides.
At Cornellskop Animal Encounters they are constantly striving to upgrade the facility to ensure their animals are offered the best life possible and in turn offer the people who visit and interact with them the most amazing experience.
