Photography of rare fruits

    2 responses

JasonD1 starts with ...
First time on here, howdy, looking for some advice on sourcing a few bits and pieces to photograph for one of my clients. I live in Sydney (Winston Hills).

Ideally need a branch cutting with leaves, flowers &/or fruit of the following:

Argan tree
Shea (Vitellaria paradoxa)
Cherry blossom (branch with flowers/buds only)
Pomegranate

I think Pomegranates are fruiting atm, not sure of where plants or orchards would be though. Cherry blossoms are not in season, but any ideas how to hold of some at this time of year? No idea about Argan and Shea...

Any help is very much appreciated!

Cheers,
Jason.

Cherry Blossom is flowering NOW in Japan, also elsewhere in Nth Hemisphere, USA has historic street plantations. Not sure if that is helpful, if you have any contacts who could get a photo for you.
If you can find trees in Australia, there is a slight chance some will blossom early due to drought/warm winter, early spring.
Pomegranates should be around Sydney, as garden trees or pot plants. You just need to prowl around and look. Nurseries may have specimens in pots, or dwarf var nana in garden beds.
I would try nurseries or botanic gardens to see if they have others you need.
Its a dumb question, but have you considered stock photos of the plants ie from internet if all else fails ?

Hey, thanks for your reply and suggestions! Unfortunately we need the specimens in our studio in Sydney as they need to be lit and shot a specific way, our client is also against using stock shots.... We can delay the cherry blossom shots til later in the year, and I’ve seen some pomegranate seedlings in a nursery, so just have to find the right one. Argon and Shea are still alluding me though!
Cheers, Jason.
