Los Angeles industrial photographer

with over 25 years of experience. He has a unique approach to photographing industry and human endeavors, transforming lackluster industrial environments into beautiful and visual narratives. He is a storyteller with a vision for his projects, and he listens and collaborates well with clients to create the beautiful images.

Photography Services

We provide a range of still photography and drone coverage, both external and internal, across industrial complexes, warehouses, and manufacturing facilities. Projects range from efficient half-day shoots for construction projects to elaborate multi-day productions for aerospace giants. We scale our fees to your needs and are competitive with photographers of equal merit.

We include post-production services on our photography assignments, including editing, color, tone, and perspective correction.

The Vision Thing

He is a storyteller with a vision for his projects, and with almost 30 years of experience, he has developed a unique approach to photographing industry and human endeavors, transforming lackluster industrial environments into beautiful and visual narratives. His admiration for human achievement, science, and architectural elegance allows him to see the beauty in industry and labor. But first, he listens and collaborates well with clients.

Ed’s extensive experience gives him an understanding of the industrial landscape, so he provides an understanding that allows him to solve big and little problems before they happen, and he creates clean, beautiful, coherent industrial images that are difficult to execute in oily, dimly lit factory environments.

Process

Ed Carreon Photography takes a collaborative approach to every project. We start by understanding the client's needs and goals, and then they develop a custom plan to meet those needs. They often scout the location in advance to anticipate any potential problems and plan for the production day. They also shoot to a laptop or iPad so the client can see the images as they are being taken.

Upon booking, we often scout a location to anticipate issues and plan for the production day. This removes unforeseen issues on the shoot day and smooths the workflow. Additionally, we s hoot to a laptop or iPad so our client feels comfortable with the images.

After the shoot, we edit, tone, color correct, and upload images to a gallery for viewing. Delivery is typically through a Dropbox download unless otherwise requested.

Happy Endings

Consider our assignment for Relativity Space who hired us to photograph their 26ft tall robotic 3D printer used to make rocket ship housings.

The challenge was lighting it so it looked beautiful and doing it safely; not an easy feat, given that we had to hang 10 1000-watt lights on two 24ft tall towers to backlight a 20 X 20 ft silk.

Additionally, the structure had to be photographed in 7 shots that were later assembled in post-production. It was the most technically challenging image we have made for any industrial client, and our turn-around time was 24 hours. Yikes!! Our crew consisted of three seasoned assistants and Ed, and it took 12 hours to execute four final images.

We usually shoot on-site, where we sometimes build our own sets or shoot on the factory floors of clients like AMRO, an aerospace fabricating company, to photograph a high-tech machined platform used for a NASA mission, along with a computerized Toshiba lathe. . Ed used digital techniques used by Hollywood retouchers and lighting typically used in the automotive industry, something Ed picked up during his long career.
