An industrial photographer needs to be properly equipped with wide angle lenses, and high output lighting. For large areas, available light can be utilized with supplementary lighting or a scene can be painted with light. Colour gels on lights can also make a scene look dramatic and create a focal point for the subject. Adding a person in a shot will create scale and immediately show a viewer the size of a piece of equipment.
Safety equipment is a must when shooting in an industrial facility. A properly equipped photographer is more comfortable and better prepared when on site. Client issued safety equipment can be uncomfortable and delay the start of a shoot. Knowing the safety rules when working at a facility will also ensure a safe shoot and avoid an embarrassing situation.
At BP Imaging we have extremely talented, professional photographers who have been involved in industrial photography for many years. In fact, our founder Tom Bochsler recently released a book “The art of industry” showcasing many of these photographs. We have experience photographing factories, machinery, processing plants, assembly lines, welders, robotics, tool and die makers across Canada. The results of which can be viewed in our industrial photography portfolio.
