Wellington’s Airport The Rock Opening

I was lucky enough to be invited to shoot the opening of The Rock, Wellington International Airports new departures lounge. I was shooting for New Zealand Travel Digest, my brief was to get some social pictures of the travel industry and VIPs at the event. When I got there, it was early so I got this shot of the architecture itself:

The great thing about the architecture of the space is that it feels so roomy inside- you get the feeling its like a cathedral or cavernous cave that has a real warmth in the timber lining- that is also sound absorbent. Even though there were plenty of nervous people when it was being built, its a great space that is unique to Wellington.
