The Fourth Industrial Revolution and the technology that brought it about are disrupting the way companies and the whole of society works. It is not slowing down and, from all indications, will even be speeding up. Those who cannot or will not adapt run the risk of being left behind or, worse, being totally left out.
An ever-increasing number of jobs are being outsourced as some companies downsize while others refuse to increase their regular headcount. Those who provide these outsourced services will experience a lot of competition even as they bring the benefit of choice, flexibility, budget control and increased quality to their clients. It may very well be the necessary complement to existing services, however. Fourth Industrial Revolution advances like robotics and artificial intelligence will benefit from the skilled and talented input of professionals as they complement each other thus resulting in much more holistic end products.
GIGCO understands this and provides a platform that takes advantage of the improving and growing technology to get creative and professional individuals in touch with those who need them most. More than just providing this connection, however, GIGCO enables all those with a deep desire to be the best they can be to achieve that.
GIGCO pioneer photographer and graphic designer, Gerbie Pabilonia, explains that he cast his lot with the company, choosing to dedicate all his creative energy to it because of all the opportunity it gives him to be the truly creative talent he is. He is asked to conceptualise images that go way beyond the ideas of the commercialised marketplace and he is pushed to expand his horizons and cross his limits. He’s always wanted to be a marketing professional and, now, he is given the opportunity to be that and not be locked in his current categories.
One thing he does appreciate even more is the community of photographers where he mingles with and shares his knowledge. What he encounters is not just competition but friendly support where one continuously learns and becomes better. He is now also given the chance to give back to this community of image creators in the form of training sessions for all those who want to upgrade their skills or venture into Gerbie’s specific style and line of imagery using his camera and computer.
With the GIGCO platform, Gerbie not only gets to be the best he can be, he also helps to guide others to do the same. GIGCO encourages the whole community of professionals and skilled individuals to grow together. Compete, yes, but as a way to see how well they do against others and how else they can be better.
Taking Inspiration from the Amazing
Eager photography enthusiasts listened intently to GIGCO resident photographer and graphic designer, Gerbie Pabilonia as he took them all on a journey to conceptual photography. Gerbie is an artist who was inspired by the works of Boris Vallejo and Frank Frazetta and these visionaries continue to have a profound effect on him and the work he does.
Gerbie challenged those present to go beyond the image they took with their cameras and then go up a couple of notches. This was, for many of them, a massive leap in the quality and creativity of their work. For others, it was almost a completely new way of seeing things was made available as Gerbie taught them how to see the possibilities in the image beyond an image.
This wasn’t just lighting, posing, and shooting. This was advanced composition and artfully manipulating light to achieve the right kind of drama in the shot.
And, with Gerbie, the final image is always inspiring and something to aspire for.
