Corporate Photography, for me, typically includes portraits and industrial photography. On occasions my corporate clients call upon me to capture events as part of their corporate image library. I was commissioned to photograph some the opening of the Aldi store at Birkenhead Point Outlet Centre, in Drummoyne. The deadline was tight as for PR and press purposes my client required almost immediately following the event. These images were sent out to various media outlets as well and used across social media platforms. It was a beautiful Sydney morning with the attendance VIP’s Mayor of the City of Canada Bay, Angelo Tsirekas, Centre Manager David Ashton and Abacus Property Group‘s National Asset Manager Gerard McSpadden. It started with some images of the crowd queuing to enter the store followed by the official ceremony and cutting of the ribbon. Not long after this the rush of customers down the travelator to shop shop shop! They had a great deal on tv’s which it seems every second customer had one on their trolley.
It’s always great when you are booked for a shoot from another country. It’s a real honour and you can only imagine how many photographers there are in Sydney, and I was the one selected. This shoot fell right into this category as the agency that design the Ernst & Young Tax Insights Magazine is in Switzerland. They commissioned me to capture portraits for an upcoming article featuring a Taxation Law Professor at The University of Sydney. As academics have a very busy schedule, it was tricky arranging a suitable time that fit within EY’s tight deadline. I arranged the time and location after a quick scout the week before. We only managed to secure about 10 minutes for the shoot in which I captured these three portraits.
A couple of months ago I was commissioned to photograph a series of portraits for the ASB Research Highlights Brochure. Captured in the ASB building and surrounding Kensington Campus in Sydney. The brief called for relaxed corporate style portraits showing warm, confident and approachable subjects. Photographed over two days, we were lucky to beat some heavy rain whilst shooting some portraits outside.
