Why you should use us for your photography
Premium value for your business.
> No hidden costs – our rates
Clear and unambiguous pricing to suit businesses of all sizes.
The guide to our rates covers individual ‘one off’ assignments. For extended projects, please do ask for a quote, since we’re happy to provide ‘all-in’ rates for work spread out over a period of construction work.
> Creative quality
Whether on our own or working with designers and agencies, we get the images that work for your business.
> Rapid service – flexible timing
You can usually have your images supplied within just a couple of days of the shoot – sometimes sooner.
Photos can be taken during normal working or ‘out of hours’. We know that site schedules can change, and can factor this into our work for you.
> Surveying background/health and safety
As a former geologist, with a surveying background, Keith Cooper is used to working on busy sites and always puts safety first. We always carry out a full risk assessment before arriving on site and are fully equipped with PPE.
We only cover commercial photographic work and are fully covered by appropriate insurances, with Public Liability cover up to £5 million.
NOTE: on investigation we have discovered that the CSCS card/scheme is no longer applicable to non construction-related occupations and so fully expect to undertake a full health and safety briefing and if necessary be accompanied whilst on active sites https://www.cscs.uk.com/cro3/
> Images that work for you
The pictures you choose should not only convey the message you want them to give, but technically should be fit for purpose. Our wide expertise, standard image processing and free post production advice, will ensure your images can be used how you intended.
> Image retouching
A full image retouching (Photoshop) service is available if needed.
We know that not every site can be cleaned up for photography – just ask what we can do for you.
> Advanced technology
