We travel the length and breadth of the  UK and  provide the highest quality Industrial Photography for our clients. Our most popular locations in demand  for Industrial Photography are in London, the South East, The Midlands, the North East , Edinburgh Glasgow and Aberdeen.

We need Construction and Industrial Photographs. How does it work, what do you do?

Usually we get a phone call or an email from one of our clients, or a new customer who has been referred to us by an existing client.  Often they require more work on an existing project  or say that a new construction project is in the pipeline.

How can we help and work with you?

We can be involved from the initial inception of the project after planning is granted right through to completion. Our construction clients and architectural clients always  tell us they use the best materials and the best people available. The hurdle comes when it is time to show their clients and prospects evidence of the quality of their build and design.  Usually on-site photographs are taken with a mobile phone and by someone who has a million other jobs to do.

High quality Construction  Photography

High quality industrial photographs will be the least expensive aspect of the build and hiring an Industrial Photographer will provide you with images that really show your company and its work at its best. If you’re using ‘phone images’ for your brochures and tender documents, it just doesn’t ‘cut it’ and stands out a mile. When you show a future client all the good work you’ve done, let the images truly reflect and show the quality of your work and your brand.

Do as your customers do! 

Think about it for a moment, your customers , whether it be the Government, Local Council or another Contractor are coming to you for your skills and knowledge, they wouldn’t believe in doing it themselves, they leave the professionals ( you and your company) to do it.

The same philosophy applies to the photographs you show to clients on Social Media, Websites and your printed publications. Put your company image in our hands as that is what we specialise in. We will work with you to deliver content that will always show you at your best.

Use an Industrial Photographer.

We can work hand in hand with your PR Manager or advertising  department to provide your  company with images that really ‘sell your brand and your work’.

Feel free to call us for a chat, or ask us over to your place  our number is 07817 512 234. Call and ask for James.

Construction Images that get you and your work noticed!

Construction photography is a challenging task!

Construction photography is a challenging task, you will know that if you have tried it yourself. All your specialities, knowledge and skill have gone into the design, fabrication and construction of the building.

It is vital that your website, marketing materials and social media profiles accurately portray the quality of your work. It is vital for you that your work gets noticed for the quality that it is. It  keeps you ahead of the competition.

Nothing in your Construction Work is left to chance, so why do this with your visual media? For those potential clients who have not physically been to or passed your work, photographs are what they rely on to judge the quality of your work. With UK Construction Photography ‘your image is in safe hands’.

 Construction Photography Rates

Our Construction photography  rates  vary depending upon your specific needs.

With regard to construction photography rates,  all our clients have unique requirements and therefore require individual tailored solutions and quotations. Our clients often require regular on site visits to show construction progress to clients via Social Media, Trade Journals, News sites and internal memos.

Longer-term Construction Photography requirements:

In these circumstances we consult with our client and use  a detailed brief to ensure we provide precisely what is required. These longer-term contracts attract special, bespoke  rates, offered to our clients with a Service Level Agreement. We offer these services nationwide. Contact James on 07817 512 234 or email to arrange a meeting.

Construction photography requirements in other geographic locations:

If you have satellite offices/ sites in French or Spanish speaking geographic locations and require Construction, Commercial, Industrial photography we are willing to travel and are able to communicate in those languages. Contact James on 07817 512 234 or email to arrange a meeting. We love to travel and we enjoy new challenges.

Shorter term Construction Photography Requirements:

In most cases we provide a PDF quote following a discussion with our clients on their specific brief. However, as a  guide, below are some typical guide prices for our commercial photography services. Entry points are from as low as £125, so we can fit within most marketing budgets.  Here’s a summary of our professional photography rates.

Hourly rate is  £125

HALF DAY rate (up to 4 Hours) :  £300

FULL DAY rate (up to 8 Hours) :  £500

For larger or more complex projects with multiple days/ months  of photography,  a bespoke quote  will be offered that is beneficial to both parties.

Additional charges may be incurred for:

  • Post Processing: (general sharpening, colour balance, exposure and artefact removal); generally 1 hour on a half day shoot or 2 hours on a full day. We don’t charge for this– this excludes major manipulation/retouching. Manipulation and retouching is costed on an image per image basis and is only undertaken after a discussion with the client.
  • Bespoke online proofing gallery.
  • Depending on the client specifications and intended usage of the resultant images, an image license may also factor into the overall costing. This is looked at on a per job basis.
  • Traveling expenses depend upon the location of the shoot.  Our usual charge for jobs further than a 200mile radius from Newcastle is only the cost of the fuel/ tube costs for London Underground if required..
  • Hotels, flights and expenses (for UK and non-UK commissions) are charged on at cost.
  • We are VAT registered and can provide you with a VAT invoice. All prices above are exclusive of VAT.
