    Was flicking through TV channels and stumbled upon The Apprentice and an abandoned tram yard - looks like a great place for a photo shoot, anyone know where too look? Been doing a bit of Google searching, and no luck so far...

    xhanatos - that would be it. Nice shots! My flatmate and I were thinking of taking our bikes out there for some snaps.

    I want to get my evo in there somehow. I'd look mad in there.
    I've been trying to work out where it was for some time.

    Group session?

    it's fairly easy to get into, quite a few people do shoots there~

    for a breif period you could get into the old newtown tram sheds too but they wern't anywhere near as interesting

    ive been in the ones in annandale and unless you have bolt cutters you arent getting those doors open (i wouldnt recommend doing this)
    its a great location for a shoot but im sure soon enough it will be fenced off and bolted up like every other interesting place in sydney :mad:

    Haha I've tried it.

    Got 20 mins into a shoot and 5-0 rocked up, got the shuffle on.

    Was a Sunday morning at 7am no less.

    We then went to Carriageworks at Redfern were the arts thing is, got told to go from there too. Apparently 3 brand new HSV's, a generator and Lights causes quite a crowd. :p

    Ended up doing it on the top level of the her majesty's theatre carpark after paying for all 4 cars day pass :(
