Sitek Engineering are a local Norwich based business supplying electrical engineering services for the energy industry amongst other services. They asked me recently to produce some photographs of equipment they supply to the energy industry relating to the decommissioning process for offshore rigs. This type of equipment photography involves photographing very large and heavy items and in this case I travelled to the companies headquarter’s in Norwich to photograph the products in situ.
To produce the photographs below I created a very large white backdrop onto which the equipment was placed to produce images against a white background. The images produced enable an end user to quickly utilise images online and for publications. To provide good lighting as opposed to that naturally available at the HQ the products were then lit using a number of my portable flash units to produce a white background and to correctly illuminate the products.
The images supplied will be utilised in publications to advertise the equipment and on the company’s own website in addition to press releases. Having these type of images allow marketing agencies to produce advertisements and graphics to sell a product and establish a brand.
