Paving is a great subject to photograph. Normally I am asked to photograph paving soon after completion of a construction site. I am lucky to get to see construction sites not long after completion, often when the premises are occupied and in use, which is always great to see. Buildings are about the people who use them, and there is nothing better than seeing this.
This kind of product photography needs good weather, so once I have been commissioned I basically wait for sunny weather. Another issue I have to contend with is the time of day, especially in the winter, as I need the photographs to make the best use of the sunshine without having shadows on the paving.
I have also included an image taken at a holiday home in Kent where the paving was used to form the driveways to individual holiday homes.
