Hobsonville Point, formerly the location of the Royal NZ Air Force’s airfield, Hobsonville Airbase, is currently being redeveloped as a new suburb of Auckland.
The much-anticipated ferry service from Hobsonville Point to Auckland city was officially opened in 2013.
The service connects Hobsonville Point and Beach Haven with the Downtown Ferry Terminal and Britomart transport hub and provides commuters with a convenient and pleasant alternative to the motorway.
The challenge was to capture this important alternative transport terminal in a way that expresses its design, functionality and uniqueness, all while much of the onshore hub was still being developed and not able to be included.
Many visits were necessary to create these panoramic images that rely heavily on the evening glow to enhance the charm and romance of travel by water.
