Christmas Lunch on the Foreshore

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, December 23, 2007

Last week our work folk all got together for an afternoon lunch and celebrations for Christmas down the Nedlands foreshore. Absolute glorious early summers day in Perth. Fab time and it really was well earned after a really busy year at the office.

Two of our colleagues have been on Maternity Leave for a little bit. Well they came along near on an hour after we had started. Guess what suddenly took all the attention,……. yep! two little babies. And it wasn’t just the ladies getting all gahgah over the bubs. The blokes too. Fari crack of the whip! Well I decided I should record some this for our staff photoshow tooooo 🙂 Took just a couple or three. [if you go back a couple of months you will see some earlier shots – especially of a very pregnant Ange]

So I decided that it was probably appropriate for two photos to herald both the end of one year and the beginnings of the next. And in our case what more to reflect that newness but the new babes of the Verigen family. The oldest first of course – by around 3 months.

An aspect of my job that I love is we get to meet all sorts of people from all sorts of places – Copenhagen, Singapore, USA, Ireland,… you name it. It’s called the OS FACTOR! That’s one great positive about a global corporation. These last couple of weeks we’ve had a couple more. John from Boston and Chong from New Jersey. So before they left the obligatory staff pics had to be taken. You never know their families might even like them too.

Second pic was pushed strongly down the contrasty tone line with some presets I picked up for my Lightroom program – in fact all these pics are now being processed done almost entirely in Adobe Lightroom. Now that’s a program that is really worth getting – especially if you use the raw facilities of digital cameras. I haven’t had that one long but given another month I reckon my workflow will really be humming. Results look great.

Anyway back to second pic. Once I got it into photoshop I put it through some watercolour. Well it came out a little bit different than I had planned. Nonetheless I still like it. Love the way the brick background ended up too.

Anne & Rebecca

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, October 27, 2007

Growing organisations mean growing in staff and also supporting the wider industry by developing future participants.  That’s what we’re doing with Anne as she does about 6 months of work experience under one of our great scientists.  So here’s a couple of pics of Anne and another for Rebecca … who just loves having her photo taken [I think 😐 ]

Still More Staff Pics

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, October 21, 2007

Another example of this – it’s so subjective.  While we are trying to get away from formal pics, sometimes you get someone who is so full of life that a formal one is,… well,… different. Gotta take more of Sarah yet.

More Staff Photos

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, October 14, 2007

Today’s Special is ……. Some new music by Leslie Feist to listen to while you check out the photos. Track number two [ My Moon My Man ]is definitely my favourite. Be a great song to put a photoshow to.

Some more photo’s of course – from Friday. Just 2 for now. Of course had to put up another of the very animated Sarah.


And of course singing the blues is…..

Sarah Singing the Blue’s
