The faces of a global telecommunications
Telstra is currently the largest telecommunications and media company in Australia with international operations spanning the globe. My work with them started as a series of corporate portraits for their management in London and went on into an imaginative photographic exploration of their internet hosting centre.rnrnThe portraits started with straight head shots, using bowens lighting and three light kits with reflectors. I set up working photographic studios in the offices to capture their unique business environment. From these clean, simple shots we moved to portraits of Telstra’s two CEOs with their British headquarters as background on London’s South Bank. These were more organic images to reflect the nature of both the individuals and the business.rnMy work in their hosting centre was heavily focused on making bold, fresh images of the technology there, and also of the people who worked amongst it. These are a series of strong architecturally influenced shots, showing the heart of this media giant’s operations.rnrnMy work with Telstra is an ongoing project. Creating powerful and spirited images to be the face of an ever evolving corporation.
