Mumbai Four Seasons Giga Pixel

Tuesday, August 1, 2017

My latest Gigapixel commission took me to Mumbai to shoot the fabulous AER rooftop bar at the Four Seasons Hotel. This was a really exciting and technically challenging project as the brief was to push the boundaries of the technology to integrate the incredible high definition of the Gigapixel imagery with live action video for the very first time. The finished image allows you to explore one of the world'smost famous rooftop bars and the stunning Mumbai cityscape in detail, as one of India's top mixologist makes a refreshing cocktail to enjoy whilst watching the glorious sunset.

A very big thank you to Sarah @ ilikegreen  for all her hard work on the project and to Matt @ Smoke & Mirrors for a great job on the retouching.

Bentley Dubai Gigapixel

Monday, March 27, 2017

I can finally share one of my latest Gigapixel photographs I shot for Bentley Motors. At 57.7 billion pixels, it is one of the world’s most detailed landscape images. 

At the heart of the photograph sits a Bentley Flying Spur W12 S in the luxury marina of Dubai – the world’s fastest-growing city. Zoom out, and the NASA-derived technology allows you to explore and experience the city panorama in intricate detail, while beyond it the curvature of the earth is visible.

Following the success of the previous Golden Gate Gigapixel, Bentley decided to take a second gigapixel shot and this time in the city of Dubai. We suspended a camera 833 feet above one of Dubai’s iconic skyscrapers. The resulting panorama is created using the same technology used to create panoramas of the Martian landscape from the images sent by the mars Rover.

Zoom in and the image will take you in sharp focus, through the landscape, right up to the instantly recognisable bonnet badge of the Flying Spur. The car itself is like a large speck when you have fully zoomed out of the photograph. Once you have zoomed in fully you can then explore the heart of Dubai. 

A huge thanks to everyone involved epsecially Piggy Lines @ Keko London for commissioning such an epic project.

Post production was done by Mustard Post, Tank London and Simon Ledder. Production was by Jesse @ Shoot Logistics.
