Are you in the need of a corporate photographer in Cooperstown NY? My work centers on providing creative photography for businesses and editorial publications.
My several decades of working as a business photographer have given me the ability to see the potential in any situation where employees are working at a business. I am able to quickly translate what your employees do into a bold and eye-catching image. These sorts of images stop your viewer and help quickly communicate your message whether it is for advertising photography, commercial photography, or corporate photography.
Decades of experience, first starting out as a New York photojournalist, have given me the agility to work quickly and unobtrusively in any situation. Many times when you hire me to photograph for your business, there will be minimal disruption to your staff or to your manufacturing process. Those years of experience shooting tens of thousands of assignments have given me the ability to also build a rapport quickly with everyone at your company from front line workers to the Chief Executive Officer.
In this photograph a worker at a cider mill in New York checks the specific gravity of fermenting cider as he makes hard apple cider from New York apples. In New York State there has been rapid growth of the brewery and distillery industry, with many micro breweries and micro distilleries emerging. Combining the technical craft of brewing with an artistic sense has given New York state a thriving brewing industry.
As is the case everywhere, we often get the go-ahead to photograph at a business for a third party client … provided the disruption to the business is minimal. This is completely understandable. So I’m often called on to bring my skills as a former photojournalist to bear.
Getting the quick tour of a business that we’ve never seen before, I quickly identified areas that would be promising for photos. And no offense to this specific location, but working and manufacturing areas all begin to look the same from business to business. They had large plastic and metal containers. Hoses and clamps. Stuff that made other stuff move from A to B. So I quickly identified that people were in fact the most important element of the craft cider making process.
I followed this worker as he went about his duties, as he closely watched the largely hidden process of cider fermenting. It became clear quickly that a “hands on portrait” would show him working and would show the high-touch craft process that relies upon human beings observing and making decisions.
I waited until he had another specific gravity reading to do and asked him to do it turned in a direction that was good for me. I was set with lens selection and lighting in advance. He did what he does, turned towards the direction I wanted. he held it for a count of several Mississippi’s and the photo was in the bag. We repeated it a few times just to have a variety to choose from. Then it was on to the next shot.
My years of experience also allow me to add supplemental lighting when needed without turning a shoot into a massive production just to create one image. I am often extremely productive shooting an entire image libraries over the span of a couple of days for my clients.
Of course, I'm able to create highly refined images with very high production values to meet your advertising needs. But as a business photographer I also understand the need to create a high volume of images from a shoot day. My skills allow me to do that quickly for you.
So if you have a need for a business photographer send me an email and we can talk about your next project. I travel anywhere in New York state as a photographer and with advanced planning can travel anywhere in the United States to photograph any assignment that requires a business photographer.
I look forward to hearing about your next project.
