Portrait Photography for Jobs Victoria

The Client:  Jobs Victoria is a newly formed government organisation that provides tailored services to support and connect job seekers and employers.

The Challenge: To photograph actual employers and job seekers that have found each other as a result of Jobs Victoria, producing a range of content for advertising material such as brochures and posters. This involved good organisation and project management, sourcing and coordinating multiple parties of job seekers and employers to make up the case studies from diverse areas and industries across 10 different locations.

The Journey: Jobs Victoria made contact with some former job seekers who had recently been placed in employment through the organisation, and asked if they would be interested in being a part of the shoot. All the people contacted were more than happy to participate and eager to tell their inspiring and often quite moving stories.  It was important that these individuals and their stories were told and they became the case studies featured in the shoots.

The Solution: Having worked closely with people on location for almost 10 years I thrive in this situation, and pride myself on being able to get authentic, natural images that tell the story of each case study. My videographer and I spent up to 2 hours at each location.

The Results:

  • JV received up to 30 images and a 2-3 minute highlights video for each case study.
  • JV is very happy with the photos and video provided. This content can be seen on their website as web banners, posters and brochures.
  • After completing 10 case studies in late 2017, I was commissioned to photograph another 40 in 2018.


Case Study: Kiandra IT – website photography.

The Customer:  Kiandra IT, are a software development firm and required new photos for their website and other marketing collateral

The Challenge: They do workshops with their clients and wanted a series of images to accurately show what happens inside these workshops. The workshops needed to show a team environment, collaboration and some of the props they use eg lego, wall diagrams, and software design drawings.

The Journey: A half day shoot on location at their office in Burke St, Melbourne. I set up small groups of Kiandra IT staff, directed the group as needed.

The Solution: I asked questions about the workshops so I could capture them as authentically as possible. Some of the workshop rooms were on the small side and had average lighting conditions. I used small powerful flash lighting equipment to make all the images look bright, colorful and consistent.
