how do they do it?
At first, let's illustrate a technical process. Somewhat like in the "How do they do it" show. Many will be a wonder to see how common things are made. Usually, factories are closed to outsiders. Until you are not an industrial photographer. So, it will be cool if people discover how do they do it on the example of your product or service. At the same time, you will tell clearly about the advantages and high quality. Well illustrated articles are attracting new customers.
on the ground and above
What if the production process is hidden from view, too unobvious or you just don't want to show it in detail? But anyway it doesn't mean there is nothing to photograph at your factory!
Many factories and sites are beautiful on their own. And the walls of your office are too boring without such industrial posters. Hi-tech equipment, old historical buildings, net of pipes and wires: look out the window or walk around — what if it is all about your place? And have you ever seen it from above?
Many photographers are good enough in landscape and interior photography, but not everyone works with industrial companies for more than 12 years in a row!
the selling pictures
My customers are ordering to photograph their products too. No catalogs or booklets do without them. You can not hire another product-photographer, because my studio fits not only small parts and jewelry. You will not believe, but once I drove a real subway train inside and photograph it!
However, just look at it.
What if the flat photo is not enough?
The website visitors would like to take a walk around your place. They could see everything in detail and even touch it. Every part is followed by a description, interactive element, or video. Panoramic points of view are made from the height of human growth and from the bird's-eye too. Virtual tours are viewable both from the screen and with the VR-glasses.
Look at the example, that I made for Kalinin NPP of Rosatom.
of industrial photography
Unlike many other photographers I estimate my job, not on an hourly basis, but depending on complexity, purpose, and processed picture number. It means you pay for photos you really need, not for abstract time.
Industrial photography can be for editorial use or for advertising. For example, if you have a new workshop opening or business meeting and want it for news, then it reportage photography. Usually, it needs no studio lighting and no retouching. The Job price will depend on how long the event goes. So, it's best to go with the "Minimal" preposition.
If you need bright pictures for booklets, for websites, or for posters, then it will be an advertising photo session. The studio lighting, place preparation, and picture retouching are necessary. A job like this needs more time. The decisive factor is the number of processed pictures you will get. In this case, look for the "Light" preposition and further.
Of course, your goal can not fit all these prepositions. And it's ok. Just describe your goal in detail and the budget, and we will come up with something really cool for you!
