Last week I did a commercial photography shoot on location in Vancouver for a client wanting to have on-the-job images for a brochure/training manual. I really enjoy this kind of work as the idea is to capture workers in a photo-journalist style, looking authentic and relaxed. People skills are necessary to get non-models to look natural in front of the camera. At the same time an eye for detail is essential with lighting, compositions and backgrounds.
This weeks’ occupation was heavy machinery operators and the location was a workshop. Lighting for this particular job was a challenge as the workers had large safety reflective strips all over their coveralls!
Here are a few images from the shoot….
It was actually a lot of fun and a different kind of “creative” for me. The guys (and gals) were great to work with and I’m looking forward to the next gig.
