CONSTRUCTION PHOTOGRAPHY

KEY CONCEPTS & FAQ

Q:

A:

I've got a project manager on-site with a decent camera that takes our project photos, why should I hire a professional construction photographer?

There's an old saying: “When the wrong man uses the right means, the right means work in the wrong way.” Project managers are busy and expensive, the last thing you want ruining your overhead budget is having them fumble around with complicated equipment pumping out photos that showcase all of the wrong things about your job site. In terms of skill set, the value of an experienced photographer cannot be understated, but having one who is also comfortable on a construction site, can really get you the best bang for your buck. Beyond the equipment, I bring even more value to the table with my knowledge and experience in the construction industry as it has given me a keen eye for capturing the strength, capability, knowledge, and experience of a contractor in action - all doing so with keeping safety and compliance in the forefront of my mind.

Q:

Why should I hire you over another photographer? What special experiences, knowledge or skills do you have that provide you with an advantage shooting in a construction environment?

A:

For a lot of reasons, it just depends on how you prioritize your values. Do you value a photographer who is as flexible as your 3-week look ahead? Here I am! Do you value your photographer having knowledge and experience in heavy construction? Look no further! Do you value having quality photos that can be used for everything from your project progress tracking to portfolio and publication? I've got you covered! Do you value safety and compliance on and off your job site? Hi, I'm Katie, it's nice to meet you! Experience-wise, I spent almost a decade working for a high-industrial work contractor under contract for various entities from County to USACE, Bureau of Reclamation, Seattle City Light, and countless municipalities. I have experience in a variety of positions from vetting and drafting government contracts and proposals to project management and support. My biggest "hat" was working as a certified health and safety professional (CHST) which taught me firsthand the value of a good safety program. The last we want is to have your well-established safety program come crumbling down with one cellphone photographer on the job site, unknowingly taking a photo of “what not to do on a construction site”, and then posting it for the world to see.

Q:

A:

My superintendents don't have time to wrangle a photographer on the jobsite - Can I trust you to make your way through the jobsite without direct supervision?

Absolutely! I spent 10 years working for a contractor as a safety manager, so above all else, I understand the importance of safety on the job site. I am very comfortable working in and around heavy construction. Relationships and communication are key to a safe work environment so when I arrive on site, I like to have my superintendents give me a brief safety orientation and take 5-10 min to walk the job with me, and show me any "go" - "no-go" areas. If am working around any heavy equipment operators, I make it a point to introduce myself and establish constant visual communication. From there on out, I am usually off on my own.

Q:

I'm working on a limited overhead budget, how will you know what to shoot that day?

A:

We can discuss your photography needs and budget during our initial consultation. After that, I work directly with your "person in charge" (this could be you, your project manager, owner, graphic designer, marketing director etc.) and we decide what should be my photo focus for that shoot. This could be anything from a scope overview to a specific operation taking place, job site personnel, candid action shots, and beyond. I make it a point to be patient but efficient when shooting to make sure we make the most of your time and budget.

Q:

A:

I am super busy and don't really have time to schedule another contractor on my jobsite - how do you typically schedule your shoots?

I like to make every process efficient and effortless. so let me take over that "back burner" project for you. After our initial consult, I will take stock of your current project list and your direct contacts for those job sites(usually a PM or superintendent). Then I can ping you or that site contact in regularly scheduled intervals (weekly, monthly, quarterly) and schedule a shoot directly with them.

Q:

A:

I'm trying to cut down on paperwork - If I have you out to my job for weekly progress pictures, how frequently will you invoice me?

Again, let's strive for efficiency! Most of my clients have me visiting multiple jobs on at least a monthly basis so for clients with multiple regular site visits, I invoice on a monthly basis. For a one-off project showcase I will invoice upon delivery of photos.
