Oktra are an award-winning office interior, design, fit and project management specialist. Based in London, their head-office contacted me for some creative photography of one of their latest office re-designs. Commercial property shoots like this are enjoyable for me as I get to explore a deserted office space where every room, corner and view has been designed with the purpose of enhancing the ambience and therefore the creativity of the staff. This is a million miles away from the offices I used to work in, back in my marketing days. Think more along the line of the TV show The Office and you’re very close. For Oktra, it’s about finding the balance between usability, aesthetic appeal and environmental stimulation. For me, the photographer, it’s about relaying this message through a series of images where a need for careful composition and lighting take priority.
