You have a logistics company to be proud of and you want to show the transport industry what services you provide, the tools you use, and your level of professionalism.
All of the above requires great images to show off your staff, amazing facilities, and your safe work practices.
This is where I fit in. Consult with me on the points most important to you that you want to showcase to your customers. You will have many ways you will use these images such as the web, banners, magazine articles etc. Just tell me what is most important to you, what are the key areas that need attention and maybe some particular angles you have in mind.
I’ll deliver promptly to you images that stand out and create the very best all important first impression of your transport business to new customers.
Scania Bridgwater won depot of the year. Promotional photos were needed of the Centre Manager, the Regional Manager and the Managing Director. Some team photos were also needed as well as some of a presentation to staff.
Later in the year I was back again to photograph a truck complete with Reversing For Cancer branding (a charity Scania were supporting), and back again at the opening of their new service centre down the road.
I have provided Scania Bridgwater with a wide range of shots such as the construction of their new service centre, the opening ceremony, interior and exterior facilities, staff at work, customers using the facilities and the technology now on hand for staff to use.
The photos have been very well received by the PR company, which is probably why they keep booking me to take more photos:
“Just a note to thank you for an excellent job. Our client is a major automotive industry player and as such demands exceptionally high standards of its suppliers – and I'm delighted to report they were extremely complementary regarding your photography and the way in which you conducted the photoshoot. Thanks once again."
Nagel Langdons have a fleet of some 800 heavy goods vehicles that travel all over the country transporting chilled and frozen goods. I visited their hub in Bridgwater to photograph some of their new Scania trucks they are currently using. They have a large proportion of Scania trucks and I was briefed to capture some photos of a few of them next to each other and with one of the key staff at Nagel Langdons.
Shots were also needed on the road in a town environment and on larger roads too. Thankfully the weather was kind.
I worked with the helpful staff there to get the shots needed. I enlisted their help to move vehicles around into various positions and also we talked about where in town would be a good place to get the clearest shots and with the most ease given the size of the vehicle on smaller roads.
Having completed some transport photography for Scania and Nagel Langdons, I had a call from Motus a commercial dealership for DAF trucks in Frome. Daniel had 5 trucks that he had sold to a haulage business and the customer was going to be in some of the photos for the handover of his new DAF tractor units.
It was a rainy day, but thankfully for almost the exact 90 minutes I was there the rain held off. The DAF trucks were cleaned and ready to be handed over. They were arranged for the photos with the help of some of the staff at Motus Frome and then I just needed to get the best photos for their press release. I took a tall ladder with me and got to work trying to find every possible angle I could think of that would show off the DAF truck tractor units to best effect.
Most of the shots were taken without people, but for the photos where the Motus staff and the customer was involved, positioning had already been thought out and the camera set to get the photos as quickly as possible and without fuss.
The cloudy weather actually added a bit of extra mood to the photos though I admit it would have been nice to see a blue sky.
I got some interior shots of one of the DAF trucks as the customer was given a tour of some of the special features and then finally a handful of quick photos with staff and the customer showing all five tractor units behind.
Images were edited and delivered the same day. Turnaround times for transport photography jobs like this is usually 24-48 hours depending on the length of the job and the requirements involved.
