Industrial Photography – Behind the Scenes with Polymers
“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” Vincent Van Gogh
They’re everywhere. And they’re often invisible.
We’re talking about polymers. Manufacturers use these natural or synthetic substances to create thousands of products, including small parts essential to the function of big products. Polymers are in everything from cars to artificial joints to pool pumps.
Clients often call us when they need to show their polymer capabilities to potential buyers. As experienced industrial photographers, we’re often shooting on the manufacturing floor and these assignments never fail to fascinate.
Our goal? Create visually exciting photos that help build our clients’ businesses.
Our images reveal the expertise of the people doing the work. From the beginning stage of polymers in pellet form, ready to be shipped in 1,000-pound bags….
or melted into barrels….
or to be manufactured into something new.
We’ve captured every step of the process, from production of polymers themselves, to products made with polymers, to tests on the results.
Though we aren’t manufacturers, we appreciate the complexity of what manufacturers do. Our curiosity can help us see visual opportunities that others might miss.
On any industrial shoot, we take time to understand the process we’re witnessing. That deep interest is essential to capturing meaningful photos. It’s the difference between grabbing a snapshot versus crafting an image.
We’ve photographed everything from sweeping panoramas of manufacturing floors to workers with sharp eyes on the inspection line.
From checking coated paper to be used in brochures, stickers and other applications….
to studying a sheet for any imperfections, as no detail goes unnoticed.
Our process begins with conversations about a client’s goals and creating a preferred shot list. On site, we make discoveries and capture unexpected images to fulfill the client’s vision.
We’re grateful to have received referrals from industrial clients. Every manufacturing job deepens our knowledge and respect for the field. It’s fascinating to learn how clients are solving problems for their customers.
