Default Help needed

Is there anyone in the Moonee Ponds/Ascot Vale area of Melbourne who could take a digital photograph for us, of a billboard at the intersection of Mount Alexander Road and Maribyrnong Road (above the Ascot Vale Hotel)?

It's a digital billboard with our Mark No Religion campaign displayed in rotation (for 10 seconds I believe) with four other advertisements.

Because of the nature of these LED billboards, it will require a camera with an adjustable shutter speed, rather than a phone camera.

Here’s a link to an article I found about photographing digital billboards, that might help anyone who is able to do this:

A mobile phone camera won't do the job; it will result in somthing like this:

Would a mobile phone video then screen cap do the job? That way someone could send you the video and you could just grab the shot you want.

Apparently not; the person who took that shot also tried video, with no success.

I can get over on the weekend, so I can get a shot during the day (I get home too late to catch the light at the moment).

If you could take a shot, and get it to me, sometime on Saturday, that would be great! We'd like to include it in a mail-out to all our campaign donors on Sunday morning.

It was also suggested to try a night shot? Might be all glowy then.
