Well that is a very good question. A question for which I hopefully have an even better answer.
Why should you choose me to photograph your building?
I am a professionally qualified in Construction Managment.
I am Member of the Chartered Institute of Building. I am proud to hold the designation MCIOB.
I am also professionally qualified in photography.
I am a Licentiate of the British Institute of Professional Photography. I am equally proud to also have the letters LBIPP after my name.
So that is the qualifications done. I am not saying that this makes me unique, but I don’t know any other photographers professionally qualified in both construction and photography.
Next reason is
My combined experience in construction and photography.
I have experience in most types of building construction and refurbishment works. Experience that is as both a construction professional and as a professional photographer.
My experience means that I have expertise in all aspects of the construction processes, including
- Planning and outline design
- Detailed design
- Pre-construction phase
- Construction phase
- Practical completion
- Client fit-out
- Client occupation
And during the life of a building
- Space planning
- Interior design changes
And ultimately demolition.
I am also conversant with modern mechanical and electrical installations, understanding the importance these engineering solutions provide in the use and occupation of modern buildings.
This combination of construction and photography experience give me a unique understanding of the construction processes and the roles and responsibilities enabling me to work quickly, efficiently and with minimal disruption either on construction sites or in occupied buildings.
My photographic equipment is tailored to photographing live construction sites and within buildings where space is often limited.
I am familiar with all aspects of the built environment, so will arrive at your building prepared for most situations (I can’t say every situation as you never know!).
I have all my own PPE of course, and am fully conversant with current construction and health and safety legislation.
I have an eye for detail, both architectural and technical. And I am a student of light and how it plays within an environment.
And of course being a professional photographer my composition skills have been finely honed over the years.
I am highly skilled in digital image processing, using the latest software from Adobe.
Finally, I provide a high quality, bespoke, professional service.
If you are an architect, builder, client, construction contractor, consultant, developer, estate agent, specialist sub-contractor, surveyor or just a building owner who requires high quality architectural interior and exterior photographs taking get in touch with me here.
I have also worked for high end specialist construction product suppliers, manufacturers and installers, photographing specific construction products in situ on site.
I can provide a quotation to photograph your building on either a half day rate, full day rate, an hourly rate, fixed price or by the image.
I provide fully edited images normally within 72 hours of completing the shoot. Images are provided by electronic transfer.
So please get in touch with me whatever your requirement might be for high quality photography of the built environment.
