There were plenty of logistical challenges to overcome, not least was how to control the lifts to open on command! Lift technicians were added to the entourage, all in all the whole team smoothed out the snags seamlessly and kept the buoyancy of the working atmosphere fun and fluid yet professional.
The resulting photographic stills and video work give an elegant, contemporary impression that are prove timeless with an international flavour.
The icing on the cake was us winning an International photography award for cityscape architecture
