I hope that the series of construction product photography images that I have posted over the last couple of weeks have been of interest to you, and have provided you with an insight into the variety of construction products that I have photographed.
I hope that these posts have also demonstrated how I may help you by taking photographs of your product on a construction site.
Wherever or whatever the product is that you require photographing, please get in touch me with me if you have a construction product/ product that you require photographing.
You can get in touch with me either through my contact page, by phone or by email – just head over to my home page where these are both prominently displayed.
For those of you who are new to me and my professional photography work, here are 10 reasons why you might like to contact me to photograph your construction product, construction site or finished building.
Well anything related to the built environment at all really.
1 – I am a Chartered Builder – MCIOB
(And Chartered Construction Manager by the way) – I have proudly held the professional designation MCIOB for some years now.
2 – I am also qualified in photography – LBIPP.
I was delighted to achieve my Licentiate in the British Institute of Professional Photographers a few years ago
Note – These two on their own are enough for some people – which is why I start with them – I know you are all busy people out there so if this is all you need to know get in touch with me here and forget about the next 8 points, as good as they are.
3 – I am a current CSCS card holder
I managed to pass the health and safety test with flying colours recently (phew)
4 – I have all my own PPE
My collection of PPE is suitable for most construction sites. I had to purchase high visibility trousers recently to complete the luminous clothing set!
5 – I have over 30 years of construction industry experience
I am comfortable working on construction sites of all shapes, sizes and complexities, and more importantly I am more than comfortable working with construction people at all levels (talking of all levels I am fine working on roofs, scaffolding, in excavations – anywhere on site – you just provide a safe place for me and I can be there taking photographs).
6 – My photography gear is designed for construction sites
My photography equipment has evolved over the years and my work in a wide range of live site environments to allow me to quickly and efficiently photograph any construction site. It is durable enough to withstand the rigours of live construction sites any time of the year.
7 – I process all my own images
I am highly skilled in digital image processing, producing technically accurate and correct images. No architect likes their building to look wonky in a photo after all do they?
I can also produce images that are consistent in style from different shoots in different locations on different days.
8 – My company is just me
I am the only person you deal with from start to finish – I answer all enquiries, develop the brief, produce the quote, agree the scope, plan the shoot, take the photos, edit the photos, issue the photos and submit the invoices. There is no one else – just me.
9 – I provide a high quality, personal professional service on every shoot
Don’t tell anyone but sometimes I have been asked to provide a next day service which I have successfully done each time it has been asked for, once producing the fully edited images for a 9am deadline the morning after an afternoon shoot (this is subject to some sensible restrictions such as if you want 300 individually hand edited images it might take me a little bit longer – I am good but not that good!)
10 – I enjoy what I do.
I always find that people who enjoy what they do produce better work than people who don’t, and I seriously enjoy taking photographs of construction products and construction sites, buildings, architecture, interiors – anything that is built basically.
I hope that this is enough to convince you to get in touch with me to discuss your photographic requirement.
On my construction product photography page you can view the selection of 12 images that I have posted recently on my photography blog. I have other pages on my website which may be of interest to you, many of which are due to updated soon with new images and new text. These web pages are specific to the commercial photography work that I do, and are as follows

A bit more about my gear
I have a very specific equipment set-up which I use for my commercial photography work, consisting of my trusty Canon 6D along with a selection of Canon L series lenses (including my Canon 24mm tilt shift lens). I take most of my images using my Manfrotto tripods with Manfrotto geared head, and have other bits of kit that I have picked up along the way to photograph challenging situations. This specialist kit includes a painter’s pole – trust me this really gives me an unusual view on many scenes.
I pack all the gear for a shoot in a backpack, the Peak Design Everyday Backpack, ensuring I am mobile and nimble (well as nimble as a 40 something Northern builder can ever be).
I also have a boot load of other gear just in case…
A little bit more about my other photography work
I also have lots of other images on my website that show a wider range of my landscape and travel photography work which may be of interest to you.
I pride myself on providing high quality, technically correct images. I have a number of repeat clients, and I am able to reproduce the look of images from one shoot to the next.
I am highly skilled in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop, and process each and every image individually.
Finally – I have photographed the built environment for architects, major construction companies, developers and product manufacturers. I have also photographed industrial sites and plant, all of which give me a diverse range of experience in the construction photography and industrial photography environments.
Thank you for reading this post, and I look forward to hearing from you whatever your construction related photography enquiry.
