We are excited to announce that the Perth-based band Voyager has made history by becoming the first-ever Australian band to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest. The band’s song “Promise” has been selected to represent Australia in the competition, and we are thrilled to be a part of this momentous occasion.

At Sky Perth, we were commissioned by Tourism Western Australia to capture ground and aerial photos during the video clip shooting of “Promise,” which will be used for the campaign and marketing purposes. It was an incredible experience to work with the talented Voyager team and be a part of their journey to Eurovision.

We travelled from Perth to Geraldton during the two-day shoot, stopping at the stunning Hutt Lagoon at sunset. The pink lake provided the perfect backdrop for the band’s performance, and we captured some truly breathtaking photos. The following day, we watched the sunrise at Kalbarri, where we visited the natural window after the new skywalk. Finally, we flew to land on the incredible Abrolhos Islands, where we captured some stunning shots of the band in action.

It’s a proud moment for Australia, and we wish Voyager all the best in the competition. We hope our photos will help showcase the incredible talent of the band and the beauty of Western Australia. Don’t forget to tune in and support Voyager in the Eurovision Song Contest!
