At a Telus Boardroom, where the Phonetography Workshop was held
Veteran and award-winning photographer, Paul Quiambao, conducted a workshop on the basics of Phonetography (mobile phone photography), which were attended by select lifestyle bloggers at the Telus House Mckinley West site. We're privileged enough to be included and help upgrade our mobile photography skills to the next level.


In the Phonetography workshop, Paul shared to us his secrets and success in doing what he loves, to take pictures. Though he works with a digital SLR, he's also fascinated in the mobile photography world and adapted his style in taking pictures, by using any sturdy cam phone. He also showed us that he's still using an old Galaxy Note 2 to take snaps.

In this mobile phone - heavy world, you don't always need a high-end, expensive digital SLR to take good photos. More often, great and inspiring photos can easily be noticed with its composition, color and the compelling story it tells in just one still picture, frozen at the moment and can tell ever-lasting tales to those who look at it.




Among the highlights of the workshop was a photography contest where the bloggers tested their newfound skills by showcasing McKinley Wests interiors and team members in creative shots posted on Instagram. It's challenging enough to take photos during events, but joining an on-the-spot instagram is more fun and adrenaline-pumping experience!

Paul and the TIP West team, ask us to take pictures of some of their recreational area which were built with millenials in mind. We were task to take inspiration from these modern workspaces and create our own instagram-worthy snaps.

Since it was established in the country in 2005, TELUS International Philippines (TIP) has set itself apart from other BPO companies – distinguishing itself through a caring company culture that puts its team members first. TIP has made its mark, not just in the business processing outsource (BPO) industry, but on its team members as well through engaging programs, events and activities that give them a change of pace from the corporate setting. These include corporate social responsibility events like TELUS Days of Giving, sports and wellness activities like the TELUS Healthy Living Cup, and a slew of parties and social events like the much awaited Town Hall.

In its newest office at McKinley West, the global BPO offers a whole new set of work spaces designed specifically to delight their team members. “Unlike most BPO offices which were created for pure function and basic comfort, our workplace is designed to be an experience that will make your day better," said Warren Tait, TIP's Vice President for Brand, Marketing and Culture. "As our team members' second home, we want to make sure that the 8 to 9 hours they spend at work is spent surrounded by things that matter to them,” he added.

There other fun spaces in Telus that were also note-worthy. Right beside the pantry is a gaming area where team members can play rounds of darts and billiards. Or they can opt to work out at the gym, located just beside the pantry, where personal fitness coaches are always available to give workout tips, and where team members can exercise on state-of-the-art gym equipment while overlooking a lush and green park through floor-to-ceiling windows.


TELUS International takes meeting rooms very seriously. In fact, there are no two themed meeting rooms that are alike across any TELUS International site worldwide. And TELUS McKinley West houses a couple of standout ones. The Board Game Room, for instance, lets team members actually carry out the phrase "work and play" literally, with a huge black-and-white chess board on the ceiling, a life-sized playable tic-tac-toe on one wall, a full-length meeting table made out of legos, and chairs in the shape of puzzle pieces.

Meanwhile, the Ocean Park Room, as its name suggests, transports team members in an underwater enclosure with cool blue interiors and sea life imagery.

And one doesn't have to brave the harrowing Manila traffic to ride a utility vehicle -- the Jeepney Room's stainless steel exterior, complete with wheels and many hood ornaments, resembles a larger-than-life version of the country's most popular mode of transportation. Its ice cream-colored interiors look like that of a regular jeepney but cleaner and much more spacious.

Not only do these areas provide team members a source of inspiration, their picturesque features make for the perfect Instagram backdrop for selfies and groufies.

“For us, it's all about the experience. Everything from the engagements and events that we celebrate, corporate social responsibility initiatives that we champion, the inspiring workplaces that we create, and the connections that we develop with our team members -- they all come together to shape the work experience that we want our team members to look forward to everyday," Tait shared.

Having a work-life balance is definitely a must-have and right for everyone. Telus offers that environment in case you're looking for one. Taking pictures through your mobile phone is also a great way to live life outside the office and a good way to relieve stress while telling long-lasting stories.
