GTECH Employees


We were recently commissioned by global lottery operator GTECH to shoot a series of real people portraits at their facilities in Texas.  Locations included their USA lottery mission control center, a central warehouse containing millions of lottery tickets and a technology development center.  Suffice to say, security was tight and presented some interesting production challenges!
