Earchphoto is here to help.
So what happens when you come talk to us?
Usually we start with a meeting - cup of coffee, happy hour, lunch, you decide. We get together and get to know more about your project and goals. Sometime, especially if the project involves a building, construction site, industrial plant, large products such as pipeline segments, tubing, etc - we may have the first meeting on location and do a quick recon of the place to get a better idea of how you want your idea showcased.
After the first get together, and if we both believe this is a great fit (we hope so!), our respective offices will move forward with a bid/proposal and with drafting contracts. While they take care of the formal aspect, we go into the pre-production phase, which (if needed) may include additional meetings with you or your marketing campaign directors.
And then the exciting part comes: we get to create something together!
Our primary industrial specialty is water, wastewater, and hydropower. You will find us most often around water treatment, wastewater treatment plants, dams, reservoirs, powerhouses, and pipelines.
We do take assignments in other areas of industrial energy production such as petrolchemical and renewable energy sources; and also manufacturing, automotive, and transportation. We are open to discussing anything that is related to industrial work and manufacturing of industrial equipment. Specific assignments are discussed with the clients on a case-to-case basis.
Although in the past our work was equally focused on both industrial and architectural assignments, in the past several years we have moved towards an industrial focus, and at this time we only accept a limited number of architectural projects which are selected on an individual basis depending on availability and workload.
Of course, we are open to ideas - if you have something in mind, come talk to us. And if and when we feel we are not the best possible match for a job, we will refer you to a specialist in that field, to ensure that you get to work with the most appropriate photographer for your needs.
During the photoshoots and video productions we do our best to stay out of your way. No, for real, we do. We are the photographers who will work from a distance with a long lens to avoid disturbing an operator. We will work around your operations and give your employees their space so they may continue to perform their work.
The safety and efficiency of your plant is our number one priority, and we minimize intrusion to make sure that all operation continue undisturbed. Our goal is to showcase the equipment, technology, and operations as they happen - and we do not want the photographer/videographer to be a modifying factor, much less a hindrance to your productivity.
Bring on the obstacles and the difficult locations. We go anywhere - cranes, towers, confined spaces, temporary structures, tunnels, you name it. Anywhere we need to be to showcase the location and equipment - whether it means traveling by air, sea, or land.
We use helicopters and aircrafts for aerial views, boats and small vessels for sea level views, and we travel by motor vehicle or sometime even ride horses or hike to remote locations for the best view of hydropower dams.
Rain or shine, desert or snow - we will be there when you need us to document your industrial operations.
We would love to meet with you and discuss your upcoming projects.
Whether we are collaborating or not, we are here to help. Feel free to ask any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to find an answer for you.
And yes, we have our TWIC cards, so we are ready to go if you need us to work offshore!
