Ed Carreon is an industrial photographer in Los Angeles working with communications, marketing, and design teams needing a seasoned photographer in Los Angeles with a unique vision, years of experience, broad skill set and a network of industry resources. His admiration for human achievement, science and architecture give him the ability to see the potential for art in industry and beauty in toil.
He is a story-telling photographer who listens and collaborates well, has a vision for his projects as well as innovative solutions. He has a aptitude for transforming dimly lit, mundane industrial settings into beautiful and interesting photographic scenes.
With over two decades of experience, he has developed a unique eye for photographing human endeavor in industries ranging from transportation and aerospace to construction and pharmaceuticals. For clients, that means that Ed can develope unique approaches to photography with a wide array processes and tools.
For example, we were asked by AMRO, an aerospace fabricating company, to photograph a high-tech machined platform used for a NASA mission, along with a computerized Toshiba lathe. . He used digital techniques used by retouchers and lighting typically used in the automotive industry; something Ed pickedup during his long career.
Our photography assignments range in size from very small half-day shoots for construction companies to art directed, multi-day high-production shoots for aerospace and pharma companies, we can scale our photography fees to your needs. Most often we shoot on location including industrial product assginments where we buiild our own sets on location as we did for the Boeing Company recently.
Ed was also hired to photograph Relativity Space's 26ft tall robotic 3D printer which they use to make rocket ship housings. The challange was lighting it so it looked interesting but was safe to execute; not an easy feat given that we had to hang five lights on a 24ft tall stand and make sure that it did not topple or collapse. Additionally, the stucture could not be photographed in one shot but rather in 9 shots that were later compiled in post production. It was the most technically difficult shot he as made for any industrial client and our turn around time was 24 hours. Yikes!!
And did we mention that Ed is also easy to work with and works well under pressure?
We include many post production services on our photography assignments including, editing, color, tone and perspective correction along with some compositing.
He understands problems before they happen, the safety issues around industrial photography projects and has received Roadway Worker Safety Training which conforms to the Federal Railroad Administration’s regulations for roadway worker protection.
Fees for industrial photography are determined by time, the extent of work, and are competitive with photographers of equal merit.
Some of Ed's additional clients have included Weyerhaeuser Corp., Target Corp., Amgen, Reliance Steel & Aluminum, Clipper WindPower Corp., Mortenson Construction, HerbaLife, JCM Engineering, Carbon Coposites, Valspar, Transdev Corp. Gilead Sciences, Alta Gas, Composite Horizons, Prologis, Clean Energy Fuels and many more.
Although we are based in Los Angeles, we often work with industries in Riverside, Orange County, Long Beach, Pasadena, City of Industry, City Commerce, Ventura and San Diego.
