Houston Industrial Photographer
I am a Houston Texas industrial photographer with 18+ years of commercial photography experience.
I'm based in Houston, Texas but my commercial availability spans the entire gulf coast including Galveston, offshore, or your most remote location.
My fees for short-term hourly projects where usage doesn't apply is typically $300 per hour. My day rate is sometimes slightly less. To learn more, contact me today with your project particulars for your custom quote.
My superior and authentic photographs will help you achieve your storytelling goals. Specifically, my dynamic photography of your facilities and employees will highlight your brand story.
These image assets will communicate your message in ways that words alone cannot. They’ll reflect the reality of your human-centric business using epic scale and unique perspectives to showcase your value-add offerings.
I'll also do extensive research and learn everything I can about you and your business. And that's just one example of how we'll collaborate more closely as photographer and client.
So, if you’re looking for a warehouse, distribution center, plant, factory, refinery, port, storage, data center, TELCOM, assembly, terminal, depot, rig, machine shop, construction site, or other industrial facilities photographer, I’m ready to work on the ground or take to the air (via helicopter if you require aerial photography).
Part of my process is to intimately understand your work throughout the whole lifecycle. That helps me offer visual insight into your project from your perspective rather than just sharing views through a photographer’s camera.
Whether you need candid, gritty, clean, or exacting images of machinery, facilities, or workers, I have the requisite experience required to elevate your project’s visuals.
Specifically, I’m familiar with best practices for documenting the processes from the planning, to engineering, to manufacturing, and finally to showcasing your in-house technology.
My photographic storytelling approach engages viewers and offers both insight and context. These photojournalistic photo essays effectively communicate editorial, documentary, and branding-based objectives using authentic, real, and honest coverage.
Every image works together, and that storytelling provides information and impact using context, real subjects, and action. This is often accomplished by photographing scenes with wide, middle-range, and tight perspectives.
And when I create your photos, I’ll think about sharing the who, what, when, where, and why. That means I’ll carefully consider both subjects and your company brand, the objects or actions featured, how time of day shares context, how locations provide a sense of place, and how the storytelling elements tie in with your brand identity.
I’ll follow your functional standards, best practices, and style guide while creating powerful, authentic, and engaging images that represent your brand.
I’ll also do no harm. This means my conduct reflects the highest standards in safety, compliance, and respect for clients, customers, and agencies. And if I observe an unsafe or non-compliant situation, I’ll speak up right away, notifying your staff and intervening on my own when necessary.
Where appropriate, I’ll review your documentation that outlines any job safety considerations or potential hazards. That includes attending on-site safety briefs or attending special training including HUET, BOSIET, MIST, or HSE.
I have advanced lifesaving skills training and will bring that to your project.
If your project requires a site survey or recce for estimating or for pre-photography planning, you can add that to your project plan, and I’ll include that additional work in your estimate or project costs.
I own top-of-the-line and well-maintained Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This means I’m immediately available and fully prepared to safely work in industrial or construction environments.
My equipment includes Thorogood American Heritage Steel Safety Toe Boots (meets ASTM F2413-18, ASTM F3445-21, ASTM F2413-18, and ASTM F2892-18), a Lift DAX Carbon Fiber Full Brim Black Hard Hat (meets ANSI Z89.1-2014 requirements for Type 1, Class C), Oakley SI Shocktube Ballistic Glasses (meets ANSI Z87.1), MAGID Liquid-Grip Sandy Nitrile Coated Cut-Resistant Gloves (meets ANSI A3), and a 3M Peltor Comtac VI NIB Hearing Defender Headset (meets ANSI S3.19-1974 for steady-state noise and ANSI S12.42-2010 for impulse noise protection). I'm also willing to work in whatever respirators you provide or require.
I’ll pay close attention to subjects in environments where PPE is required and always check with the art director, supervisors, or personnel to help ensure that the proper PPE appears in your photos. This means that people in the same photo should wear the same PPE, and that all PPE is in good condition.
We’ll make sure that subjects are safe and are not violating safety rules. Rule examples include subjects in vehicles should be wearing seatbelts, subjects on stairs should be holding handrails, and all equipment should appear tidy and organized.
Contact me today and let's start talking about your project goals, timelines, and deliverables. I'll exceed your expectations.
