Following on from a shoot a month ago, new client DeWalt commissioned me to photograph more tradesmen using their professional range of drills and accessories. I guess the first set of photos went down well. I used portable lights to achieve the desired affect, being battery powered they much easier to use in situations where there is no mains electricity supply. Looking forward to doing more shoots with DeWalt, a great client.
Almost six months ago I met with the people at DeWalt to discuss shooting images for their website. The professional drills and accessories were distributed to tradesmen to test and evaluate, and after that we photographed them at a west London construction site. Photographing tools which had been used and actual tradesmen gave a reality to the images. The range of professional tools from DeWalt is the "go to" equipment in the construction industry and I'm very happy they asked me to photograph them in action.
Thanks to my assistant Mina for this shot of me leaning out of a Land Rover shooting a truck for Culina Logistics. Tracking, or car to car photography is a technique I often used for automotive clients. Well these things are built to move, so I think it's best to show them in motion. Getting the right shot involves selecting the correct shutter speed. The slower the shutter the more movement, and the more dramatic the image, but too slow and the shaking of the car makes the subject blurred. More images from this shoot are here.
