The Capitol South Yarra



Bates Smart

Working together with Fabio Ongarato Design and their team of Fabio, Maurice Lai, Katherine McQuarrie & Meg Phillips and my team of John Hamilton (as maestro retoucher), Max Schafer (intern) & Andrew Butler (digital operator) along with Chris Sherwood (pilot) we've produced an advertising and art series of images for The Capitol. The Capitol designed by architects Bates Smart is a new apartment development on Toorak and Chapel Street, South Yarra. Photographing with ALPA cameras, a Leaf Aptus II-10 (56mp) digital back, Tyler Gyro, and  Bell Jetranger III one image from the series has been reproduced as 12.5m x 3m Durotrans print for The Capitol's display suite. This image is one of the largest and highest resoloution prints ever made and from a helicopter while hovering over South Yarra in the late afternoon. You can visit The Capitol display suite and see the print for yourself at 367 Chapel street from 2011 - see if you can find the A380 on final approach!
