Trade Me Auckland Office Photos

Anthony Au-Yeung and I were asked to create images capturing the vibe of the Trade Me Auckland office.

We set out to capture a mixture of people and environmental shots.

All up, this photo shoot took an hour, thanks to Ant’s keen eye and hand with staging.

Trade Me Auckland Office - Retro Bulbs
These retro bulbs hang from the ceiling, brought to life against a lush green wall.

Trade Me Auckland Office - Hanging Basket Chairs
These funky hanging chairs are fun to sit in (for short periods)

We were scratching our heads at how to make this setting look interesting, without capturing all the construction activity outside the glass facade. So Ant thought outside the box, and got me to take the shot from above!

Trade Me Auckland Office - Sun Room
This is the sunniest spot in our office, right by the glass facade. Cosy enough for an afternoon read or getting stuck into some code.
Trade Me Auckland Office - Putting Green
The amazing 3 hole course!
Trade Me Auckland Office - Atrium
Can’t find a meeting room? No worries, bask in the sun in the open plan atrium.
Trade Me Auckland Office - Desks
Light and bright open plan desks

Trade Me is an awesome place to work, and it shows on everyone’s faces!
