Guilin Delegation

Guilin Delegation

This shoot involved four photographers working at nine different events over five days. Delegations from Guanghi and Guilin, Hastings’ sister city in China, held meetings with Hastings mayor Lawrence Yule, councillors and council officials, attended a banquet, planted trees in the Osmanthus Gardens and put on an amazing show at the Hawke’s Bay Opera House. The Osmanthus Gardens were lit up with Chinese lanterns in their honour.

Our projects for Hastings District Council have been on the go since 2010, including Citizenship Ceremonies, award presentations, sporting events, murals, Edible Arts, Earth Hour, Wine and Food festivals, Young Achievers, Playground openings, and so much more.

“Duncan, I have had the pleasure of working with you over many many years, especially in the Civic and Corporate side of life, but also in those truly special family and private occasions. Your trademark is your mischievous smile, making people just laugh and relax. The standard of photos you produce speak for themselves… incredibly professional. Best wishes.”
