Industrial photography in the North West - manufacturing commission

Published on Wed Feb 8, 2017 by

Industrial photography is such a wide sector that it is one of my favourite areas that I cover as a professional photographer. You are never quite sure at the point of initial contact what the commission is going to involve. With over 10 years experience working at manufacturing and industry locations I've helped some great companies, both large and small to get killer images for both advertising and trade / press usage. 

Recently I had a repeat commission from Knauf Insulation, who manufacture large insulation panels for clients across the UK and Europe. Previously, I worked for them documenting the installation of their product 6 floors up during the building of the new Royal Hospital in Liverpool city centre. It was a little nerve-racking, as it was an external cladding install and I went up in davit style carriage - ie those rigs that can move a thin platform up and down the outside of high buildings. So when they called again I was unsure what to expect. Fortunately, but equally interesting, it was on solid ground, in their manufacturing plant across on the Wirral.

The marketing department needed images of both staff and factory processes for various case studies they were working on and we booked across a couple of days to fit in with people's schedules. It was really great learning about the manufacturing of the various products and seeing a large scale production line working at full speed. Below are a few photos from the commission. Of course if you work for, or look after the public relations for, industrial or manufacturing clients and require fresh, new images give me a call. I've got full public liability insurance, have loads of experience working in areas where health and safety is a priority and am a member of the NUJ.
