Freeze Frame

David and Madeleine Rayward from Sky Avenue Photography and Design, took this 360° image of Macquarie Island research station during a visit in 2018 to photograph the station and surrounds for a virtual tour. They used a DJI Mavic Pro drone set at 1/2000 sec and f/2.2, from 70 metres up. This photo provides a sense of scale and context for the research station. It is made up of 34 images stitched together to form a 360° aerial panorama that sets the scene for the virtual tour.

Father-daughter team David and Maddy Rayward established their Tasmanian-based business in 2013. David is chief photographer and Maddy is the graphic and web designer. Their better known work includes virtual tours of the Marine National Facility RV Investigator, the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai, and drone footage of the Hobart waterfront.
