I love capturing the industrial scene after the sun goes down. It takes on a whole new vibe that rarely gets the attention it deserves. Sure it’s hard to capture things on the fly with minimal ambient light that “might” be available but that is part of the challenge of creating an image with impact. You might have to capture the image at a different angle depending on what light source is already available or bring in another truck and flick on the headlights to light up the remaining part of the scene.
I just got back from a little road trip just outside of Haileybury Ontario where I had the chance to have an on site consultation with my new client CXS LTD (Canadian Exploration Services LTD). On site photography consultations give me the chance to look over the operations, talk to the key people in regards to the photography requirements, start a rapport with the companies owners and CEO’s, and discuss upcoming photoshoot opportunities. It also gives the chance for my client to understand the dynamics of the photography and how we work together to create the images they require.
For CXS we will be creating images of their exploration and construction services for their new website, social media, brochures and other marketing materials to showcase their services, fleet and work quality. I am also looking forward to photographing some heavy equipment in the construction industry like the CASE excavator below that I grabbed a quick photo of while I was there.
