Construction Photography

The Art of Construction Photography

Words play an important role in reliving moments, conveying messages, and describing things, but it is hard to beat the power of photographs on these occasions. And photographs certainly speak louder than words in marketing campaigns.

This is one of the most important reasons to hire a photographer for your construction process. Construction photography is vital for several reasons.

First, it can be used as documentation for anyone needing status reports on the progress of a site. Good construction photography can keep the higher ups satisfied and the necessary funds available.

Second, it can help document the changes to a location. While this is not necessary for everyone, it is this type of documentation that gets used in history books and other information sources.

It can help market the services provided by that construction company. Prospective clients can get a good idea of the quality of work you provide and the type of environment you create through the photographs. And it can, of course, sell the property itself.

Your construction photographer can provide several options, including:

  • Drone photography to portray the entire scene

  • Time lapse documentation, which is taken at key points in the construction project

  • Panning videos, which are extraordinarily helpful in sales. Panning videos are those that use a fixed location for the camera but move it from one side to the other to get a panoramic view of the site.

No matter what your goals for the photographs are, a construction photographer can help you reach them. These photographers do more than come out and take pictures. They develop strategies that help them determine the types of photos they should take. Before getting started, it is important to speak in depth with the photographer about what you are looking for from their services.

Your photographer will typically take some time prior to taking any photographs to learn more about your business, the construction project, or both. This understanding, along with the information you share about your goals, will help them capture the best images so that they can help convey the message you hope to share.
