Super Heroes and Grabber Trucks – Commercial Photography, West Sussex

Grabber Trucks and Super Heroes, Commercial Photography in Crawley, West Sussex

This is what I love about being a commercial photographer. Every once in a while an amazing project like this one for DJ Haulage (just outside Crawley in West Sussex) comes along. A full day on-site at the clients facility photographing grabber trucks for their new website. I’ve included some of my favourite images from this shoot in the video.

As commercial photography goes, the brief was fairly standard: “make my XYZ thing look sexy.” Its really easy if its a beautiful gown being worn by a fashion model. Applying that concept to something like a grabber lorry really stretches the artistic imagination and requires a lot of thinking outside of the box.

Details, details

So there I was, standing in the middle of a massive yard somewhere near the Surrey and West Sussex border, not too far from the end of the runway at Gatwick Airport. Massive machines were thundering around me with the comings and goings of the drivers – picking up, dropping off and moving piles of rubble, stone and dirt around.

The web designer, Martin, from Astute Enterprises was also there which was very useful. In the absence of a formal shot list it made planning the shoot and delivering the images he wanted for the new website much easier.

I’ve included a few of my favourite images from this shoot here, in this article. The video above has a few more too.
