These are the main reasons why I get hired for mining industrial photography. Companies are now learning that stock photography and iphone images are not ideal for portraying the professionalism of their company. When trying to market their service or product they require images that draw your attention, show a lot of detail and don’t look like every other generic photo on the market.
Annual Reports, News Articles, Magazine Covers, Press Releases, Mining Magazines. If a company is going to be featured in a magazine or trade article it is always convenient for them to have high impact images on hand to send to the publisher. These images will stand out and grab the readers attention.
A lot of the times my clients will hire me to provide images for their new trade show booths and convention materials. The bigger the image, the more eye catching the booth is. I have seen this over and over at trade shows. The booths that have unique and visually compelling images seem to have more traffic at their booths, while the booths that have mundane or “stock” images tend to not get a lot of attention.
Some companies have hired me to capture progress images of their facility and projects. These types of contracts usually have a duration of a couple of weeks to a couple of months depending on the scope of the project. Having the same photographer throughout the project ensures that the quality of the images remain the same.
Aerial photographs are a great way to show a company’s facility or property in relation to it’s environment. Some people think it’s easy photographing from a few hundred feet in the air, but wind, lighting, and altitude all play a major factor in getting a desirable image.
Mine rescue teams, safety teams, zero harm safety awards and project teams are all proud to be working together. Companies show their appreciation by getting a group photograph done for prints and news articles.
Companies that have a specific product to sell need images for their catalogs, brochures, websites and other marketing materials. I photograph these products in a studio setting on a white backround or in the field being used by the company or the clients customers.
There are two types of “Business Portraits” in the Mining Industrial Fields. The studio portrait and the on location portrait. The on location portrait is usually photographed at the company’s facility or in the field where the companies products or services are being used. The studio portrait can be taken in my studio, or I can setup a portable studio on the companies facility.
