I was once again tasked to go to Montreal for one of my regular client to take photos of their cutting machines. They want to be able to show to their client what their machines are capable of.

This kind of industrial photography photo shoot is very fun to do. The machines are amazing to watch. They can cut very precisely into 2 inches thick steel plates like if they were butter.

You can have a feel of what it is to photograph at a metal cutting plant with the short video below (thanks to my assistant Sébastien Dion for the footage)

For a big corporate event held at the Quebec City Congress Center, my client wanted me to take a time lapse of the room, as well as the actual event. You are seeing six days compressed in just over five minutes. The room takes shape over three days, then goes over three difference layout changes over three more days as the event progress. If you can, watch it on Youtube with the big player in HD
Technical: 1 photo every 32 seconds with a Canon 1D Mark III with a 16-35 at 16. I ended up with 17,000 something photos to play with.

Pour un gros événement corporatif au Centre des Congrès de Québec, mon client Ruby Sky event planning voulait avoir un time lapse de la salle en train d’être monté, puis de l’événement en tant que tel. Vous voyez six jours compressé en un peu plus de cinq minutes. La salle prend forme pendant les trois premiers jours, puis passe à travers trois différent changement de décor lors des trois jours suivant. Si possible, regardez sur Youtube en utilisant le HD et le gros lecteur.
Au niveau technique, une photo a été prise aux 32 secondes à l’aide d’une Canon 1D Mark III équipé d’une 16-35. Cela m’a donné plus de 17,000 photos.

I was recently commissioned by SSAB, a Swedish steel manufacturer, to photograph their impressive steel cutting machine. It is a harsh environment, but industrial photography is fun to do. It was my second time at the Delson plant. Photos from my first shooting are on my blog.

Some enhancing was done in post production to clean the plate a bit, but still keeping it believable.

And finally, if you want to see in what kind of environment I was shooting, here are two behind the scene photos and a video by my assistant Sébastien Dion.

I don’t really advertise myself as a commercial photographer, but since my Google rank is pretty good, I often get request from people looking for a commercial photographer in Quebec city. Some months, corporate jobs represent more than 50% of my income.

I rarely publish the photos and I rarely even talk about it here, because the end result is rarely interesting for anyone else than my clients.

But just because I feel like it, here is some jobs I recently did.
