Putting Street Art on a Billboard

By | Advertising Photography, Behind-the-Scenes, Cool Stuff, Photos in the wild | No Comments

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. The Southern Cross Austereo radio network had a cunning idea for promoting Triple M radio station – commission Melbourne’s most notorious street artist HAHA to create a custom artwork and put it on the largest billboard in the…

Return to Hanging Rock: The Exhibition

By | Cool Stuff, Photos in the wild | No Comments

Image Workshop photographer Sharon Blance is pleased to be featured in a brand new exhibition staged by the National Trust exploring the enduring legacy of Picnic at Hanging Rock. 40 years ago the film galvanised Australian cinema with its dreamy, surreal visual interpretation of an already-iconic mystery story.

We set out to build a replica cello out of bits and pieces of retro technology. I mean, pfffft, how hard could it be? Composer & performer Vanessa Nimmo asked us about creating promo photography for a Melbourne Fringe Festival show she was working on. Titled Old Tech, New Decks the performance was based around creating music using the nostalgic sounds of old technology: the screeching of a dial-up modem, the rhythmic clacking of typewriter keys, that distinctively ear-grating Nokia…

Elephant hunting with Melbourne Zoo’s “Mali in the City”

By | Cool Stuff, News, Personal Work | No Comments

One the of things we love about living in Melbourne is that there’s ALWAYS something cool happening. Like a few weeks ago, when colourful elephant statues started popping up all over the city. This year is the 150th anniversary of Melbourne Zoo, and as part of the celebrations the zoo folk created a fun public art project, named “Mali in the City” after Mali, the first elephant calf ever born at Melbourne Zoo.
