Pleased to see imagery from our recent shoot at QT Museum Wellington, New Zealand finally making it’s way to the website and advertising for the re launch of the hotel.


 

We travelled to Wellington earlier this year on a commission to photograph the hotel under the new banner of QT Museum Wellington. This unique property now joining the portfolio of QT properties. Straight from their site it reads, ” Fall down the rabbit hole into an explosion of color and texture at Wellington’s new design-driven Hotel, QT Museum Wellington. Our walls host a curated collection of high & low brow art sitting in a stunning harbourside location & engulfed  by vines and vivd ivy.”

“Your new Wellington creative hub is the epitome of cool luxury – high tech, sophisticated spaces & a paradise for foodies. Go beyond your boundaries as you are challenged by the scale of our art while experiencing the comfort of having the modern traveller needs at your fingertips.”

 

Art, design, curiosities and a dash of the absurd – QT Museum Wellington.

Travelled with great mate and collaborator Tom Hood, as always we managed to mix a heavy dose of photography work with some downtime exploring the Martinborough wine region, in the South Wairarapa outside of Wellington. Thanks for the detailed research of finding some superb Pinot Noir destination’s Tom, favorite and stand out for me was 2014 John Martin Pinot Noir. Travel snaps below.

I guess to me the best assignments are the one s that find us not only back home in Australia, but better still see me on assignment in my home town of Melbourne, Australia. Such was the case on my December jaunt, and assignment for the QT Hotel chain, one of my favorite clients of all time! There simply is no better client to work for than the Managing Director of Event Hospitality & Entertainment Limited, the enigmatic Mr David Seargeant, an industry legend and all around great guy. Very seldom are you given the brief of, “just do what you do – I know ‘ll love what I get”. Seems simple enough but the psychology that runs far deeper, Mr Seargeant  always throws out the gauntlet to make each new shoot even better than the last, and therefore we always dig a little deeper. In this case it meant running a few 16 – 20 hours shifts to achieve what we were chasing. On assignment at a fully operational hotel running at 100% is always a mighty challenge but one that we revel in. Here’s just a glimpse of what we were able to achieve.
