    [VIC] Best Locations in Melbourne for Industrial and Night Shoots

    I've been getting more into photo shoots for cars around Melbourne, so I thought I'd start this thread to tease out some great locations. At the moment I have...

    - Docklands Drive, Docklands - near/under the Bolte Bridge
    - North Wharf Road, Docklands
    - Williamstown Road in Port Melbourne, way down the end near the river
    - Lorimer Street, Port Melbourne - down the end
    - ACCA in South Melbourne, home of the yellow peril
    - Ikea Richmond car park (lower purple level)
    - Western Hotel entrance (Melbourne CBD) enter via little Collins Street
    - Bromham Place Richmond - great industrial buildings
    - Bunbury Street, Footscray - Graffiti and industrial

    What other locations offer that industrial/graffiti look for the day or night shoot?

    You forgot lower level Ikea Richmond (Purple area).



    But I think they stuffed up the red pipes by adding two poxy polyurethane ones beside the original cluster.

    Wow, looks like a great location... thanks for the tip

    I'm thinking it might be an idea to arrange some "photo shoot" nights... might be fun.

    Thanks for the ideas posted - looks like I'll be in Melbourne in a few weeks doing some shoots and I have no idea about good spots!

    I think we've only scratched the surface with great locations in Melbourne. Not sure of your schedule or reason for coming down, but if you're interested maybe we could arrange for a few Melbourne folk to tag along for a shoot? No pressure, just a thought

    I would love to help out if I could, but given they are paid shoots I'm not sure the clients would be too pleased with a group of people hanging around (no offence intended).

    It's all good, figured as much... And I'm sure the client wouldn't like hangers on when it's their dime... Enjoy Melbourne
