In September, Mo Lelii, the in-house photographer and videographer for St. Petersburg, Fla.-based Power Design, captured a shot of the company’s team at work in Seattle. “I am always on the lookout for iconic features or distinct landscapes to give a sense of where the project is along with what is happening in construction,” he says. “Anyone who sees this will immediately know exactly where we are!”
Power Design is handling the electrical, fire alarm systems and public safety distributed antenna systems for the 1000 Virginia, a 45-story high-rise residential apartment project. Lelii was on site filming a case study video about Power Design’s prefabrication program to show how it makes jobsites more efficient and safer for employees. “I had to be extra aware of my surroundings for the day because they had just completed a concrete pour,” he says.
He used a Sony A7R4 and a 70-200mm lens to capture the photo. “The longer lens helps brings the space needle and the mountains closer to the subjects in the foreground,” Lelii explains.
