Industrial Photography, P&M
Over the last year I’ve done a few industrial photography shoots for Patterns & Moulds Ltd, a family-run industrial mould-making company based in Wymeswold, Leicestershire. Earlier in the year we worked together on a time-lapse video of the building of their brand new, state of the art cutting machine, which will be part of an advanced engineering show P&M are taking part in at the NEC in November.
To sit alongside the time-lapse video at the exhibition, yesterday I went over to take some photos of the new machine in action, as well as some general shots around the numerous workshops and machines that P&M has in operation. It’s always an interesting experience, going to an industrial company and seeing their workshops from a completely different angle than they do when experiencing it on a daily basis.
In the past, I’ve focused quite heavily on the small details that fit together to create a larger impression of what a company is all about, but due to the scale of P&M it was a great opportunity to look at the wider picture and see what fascinating details can be captured on a bigger scale. For me, the space at P&M is a bit like a photographer’s playground, and it’s always great when a client gives you a bit of freedom to capture whatever you see.
I’ll follow this up with a portfolio blog at a later date!
