The aim of the regional photography library is to demonstrate activity already happening in the Centroc region that is helping to build a clean energy future.

The photographic brief is aimed at telling the visual story of the Carbon Plus Study and associated Communication Plan. These images captured but were not limited to photographs presenting the region as

• using cutting edge farming technologies
• responsible managers of water
• populated by resilient, modern, educated, intelligent people with an understanding of sustainability
• worthy of investment
• diverse and engaging
• whilst reflecting the seasonality of the region.

The images aim to reflect the 17 LGAs that form the Centroc network with a focus on the agricultural, farming and water management sectors.

The photography is aimed to present part of the vision for a sustainable and resilient region in the face of a future with less water and a greater need for renewable and low-carbon energy sources and demonstrate Centroc’s leadership in the development of tangible and existing responses to these pressures. The aim is to demonstrate this via photographs of those within the Centroc community that may promote further action by other sectors, community groups and individuals in response to these issues, especially via association of familiar locations, people and practices which have merit with the audiences we are targeting who don’t resonate with glossy, tricked up imagery or stock photography that is potentially meaningless.

Due to the diverse landscape of the Centroc communities resources to cover all of the LGAs was limited by budget and travel costs to each location. Provision was then made part way through the project to cover all of these areas via aerial photography, with the aim to complete the library encompassing all communities either via on ground shots or via aerial images. This approach also aimed to cover the broad cross section of community size, landscape and industry that forms each LGA area.
