I tend to find myself in the industrial / trade sectors which is good as there can be some really interesting machinery and skills to try and bring to life visually. Semco are one of those companies.
Installing, to name a few, electrical, fire and plumbing services in commercial buildings I had to capture both a few finished car showrooms and their Head Office. The main location was in Cheshire where they are in the middle of a care home build.
A good section of my work comes from design / marketing companies who bring me on board for certain clients projects that they have. The design company for Semco is The Design Mechanics. Having work for a few of their clients you get to understand and know how they work and visually use images which helps me as a Photog to frame / capture a certain scene in a few ways to allow for maximum usage of the images.
Having to travel light so I can get around the building site without causing too much issue for H&S a few speedlights were the name of the game.
This was taken at their offices. I’ve mentioned before I’m a believer in creating your own stock imagery, however small or insignificant it may seem. It all adds to the clients branding and visual presence in their marketing material. (one simple speedlight to give a slightly different feel than to use just available light)
When working with tradesmen or indeed if H&S comes into play you’ve got to make sure that the subject has the right PPE on. No matter how good a shot you’ve just created if it shows the wrong gear being worn or missing a certain item (ie goggles, gloves, mask etc) the client won’t use it as could infringe on certain H&S rules.
Semco’s website is still under construction so can’t show any places these images have made ‘print’.
Sure I’ll post an update when things change.
