NOT every family is given the opportunity to have a family portrait shot by an internationally-renowned photographer.
It was a treat then for the 94 staff members of Pacific Destinationz and their family members to be photographed by Pedro Virgil, one of the big names in the world of fashion.
Pacific Destinationz directors Lala and James Sowane said rather than use Mr Virgil's services to boost the company's advertising image, they thought it best to give their employees a chance to experience being photographed by one of the world's best.
"We decided that instead of focusing on our company vehicles and other services that we offer for our four-hour opportunity with Pedro Virgil, that he take family portraits of our committed team of local management and staff," said director Lala Sowane.
"We want to give them a timeless memoir, something they could proudly display in their homes because it is not often we get the opportunity to be photographed by an international photographer, let alone someone of the calibre of Pedro Virgil."
James Sowane said Pacific Destinationz was proud to be associated with the renowned artist and grateful for the opportunity to provide logistics support to Fiji Fashion Week.
"This is indeed a unique opportunity for our company to give back to our young and dynamic team in recognition of their commitment and passion for our company and I am sure that they will treasure these family portraits," he said.
