Sean Larkan is a professional photographer based in Crescent Head, New South Wales
I concentrate on industrial, corporate and commercial photography but enjoy all types of photography. I like the challenge of making sometimes boring things look interesting and striking and for them to convey an important message for business clients.
My other professional focus is doing growth strategy consulting to professional service firms, businesses, corporates and charities.
This has helped me understand the needs and challenges of business people and I have learned to relate well to a wide range of personnel in such organisations. This is important for my photographic work, as it gets people comfortable and 'on-side'.
As a published author of a book on brand strategy I have a keen appreciation of how images and aesthetics help businesses connect emotionally with viewers. As a well-known brand author says, this is 'where brand rubber hits the road'.
An interest in photography and art goes back to my childhood - my mother was an accomplished artist and farmer-father a keen photographer so I grew up with my Dad's Pentax camera in my hand.
I have had the good fortune to win some awards, had photographs published in a book and in various brochures and reports and many hang in residences in different parts of the world.
My photography passion led me to undertake a Masters Degree in photography which was a wonderful learning experience.
I have undertaken extensive photographic work over many years for entities such as Rio Tinto and Argyle Diamonds covering a wide range of their operations and social responsibility programs. When I moved to the east coast Rio and Argyle acquired the portfolio of some ten thousand images I had done for them.
Other large assignments have been for Fulton Hogan, Leighton, Abi Group and the RTA. I have also done work for engineering firms, tourism lodges, developers, building owners, professional service firms and construction and road and bridge building companies amongst others.
I look forward to assisting other organisations with their corporate/industrial/commercial photographic needs! View More...

Testimonials Submitted by the photographer
Nikki, Community relations manager, Leighton Contractors
Sean's assistance in shooting aspects of the Pacific Highway project was greatly appreciated by myself, the wider project team and importantly, representatives of the NSW Roads and Maritime Services.
Sean's willingness to work within project safety constraints, as well as his assistance in meeting our tight time-frames meant a stress-free shoot and quick turnaround on the resultant images, which were of outstanding quality.
I would most certainly seek out Sean's services in the future.
Robyn, Communications Manager, Rio Tinto Diamonds
Sean Larkan was commissioned by Rio Tinto Diamonds for a number of photographic assignments. Over the course of a three year period, Sean captured various aspects of the Rio Tinto Diamonds business and in particular the large scope of our operations at the Argyle Diamond Mine located in the East Kimberley Region of Western Australia.
Sean produced a broad portfolio for Argyle which included landscapes, management and employee shots as well as high quality product imagery.
Sean's high quality images have made a significant contribution to many important publications that are now part of the Argyle Diamonds corporate memory.
On a personal level, Sean exhibited a high level of professionalism in his dealings with Rio Tinto Diamonds and I can highly recommend him for future photographic assignments.
Graeme, BD Manager, Fulton Hogan Construction
We are a large Trans- Tasman civil engineering construction company and tendered for a large bridge contract on the Pacific Highway. We urgently needed high quality images to support our Tender. We engaged Sean Larkan for this work and he:
* met our challenging time-frame to complete expectations;
* created perfectly the images we required for the look and feel we wanted - seldom does a photographer have the rare skill to capture images perfectly for something like a construction project;
* was a pleasure to work with in a creative and high pressured environment and delivered on timetable and commitments;
* worked with a senior and diverse team cooperatively and pro-actively to deliver what was needed;
* completed the work to standards beyond our expectations; and
* helped make our tender unique and a stand-out with his excellent images.
As a result of Sean's outstanding work, the ease of working relationships and response time he was engaged again for another large project where the images were again a contributing factor to position the tender to create a professional and quality image where we were ultimately successful.
We would have no hesitation in using Sean again in future and in recommending him.
