There are many aspects of photography from amateur to world traveling professionals. Each individual has a unique look and approach to their image making. Some good and some, not so much.
So who do you choose for your construction or industrial photography? The right one.
A good industrial photographer is just that….an industrial photographer. We don’t accept assignments for school portraits, wedding, social events, family gatherings or soccer games. We have all the PPE required by the safety officers and OSHA. We come prepared. You can spot us from a mile away. We have the cleanest safety clothing on site even if it’s not really that clean!
We know to check in at the field office when we arrive and sign out when we leave. We sit through safety orientation meetings and adhere stickers on our hard hats as a badge of honor. We’re not afraid to pass a drug test or have our images verified before we leave the site. It’s all in a day’s work.
An industrial photographer sees the art, science and hard work it takes to develop an industrial location. We appreciate the excavator operator, the steel worker, the drilling & blasting and the general contractor’s wishes. We stay out of their way and stay safe at all times. Safety First, photos second. Never the two shall swap places.
A good industrial photographer will never take chances or jeopardize the trust the site management has bestowed upon us but we also would rather not photograph everything from eye level in our fancy steel toed boots.
Whatever it takes to get a great image, we’ll do it. Jump in a boat, climb a scaffold, getting into a man lift or bucket truck are all part of the plan. We bring long lenses to stay safely away from hazardous materials areas and super wide angle lenses to get inside the cab of an excavator or 4’ sewer pipe.
The next time you looking for your industrial or construction site to be photographed, hire a full time industrial photographer. We’ll get the job done safe and right.
