Grenfell photographer to showcase the Weddin region

Grenfell-based photographer Helen Carpenter has not only been noticed by one of the biggest companies in Australia, but will also have her work showcased internationally.

"I have recently had an image picked up by Telstra for their Regional and Rural campaign," Helen said.

"Photographs were independently selected by Telstra, I was the only successful NSW photographer to be included."

Telstra recently acquired photos that depicted the 'richness and diversity of country Australia,' according to the Rural Room with Helen's photo one of the images selected to display authentic regional imagery.

According to founder of the Rural Room, an online platform for photographers, Bec Bignell, Telstra acquiring Helen's photo aligns with the company's commitment to connect Rural and Regional Australians using regional talent.

"The Telstra network supports the opportunity for this remote work and helps us come together," Bec said. "Telstra's support of our photographers enables them to highlight their work through an organisation that shares their appreciation of 'real' regional Australia and to a wider Australian audience."
