Showcasing a green wall installation

By Advertising Photography, Architectural photography, Commercial PhotographyNo Comments

It started with a call from Garden Beet, one of Australia’s premium vertical garden designers for residential and commercial fitouts. They’d completed a vertical green wall installation for Telstra at Highpoint, but were having trouble getting a good photo of it for their web & print marketing.

Sometimes the advertising photography we’re called on to do is less about being ‘visually creative’ and more of a technical and ingenuity challenge – like translating an artwork housed in a tiny garage into Melbourne’s largest billboard.
