A few weeks back I was commissioned by a PR company who look after a UK based manufacturing business, who make top of the range building insulation material. They specfically needed images of the product being installed and had worked with the construction company to allow me access and some willing volunteers to appear in the shots. All great until I arrived on site at the new Royal Liverpool Hospital and the foreman explained the installation was now at the 6th floor ! I was shown the building crane and talked through a few safety rules - tyring to not appear nervous of heights, I readied my equipment and climbed aboard.
It actually wasn't as scary as I imagined - the crane was totally secure, didn't wobble and I was looked after by a great, experienced team. At the correct level, we got the images of the insulation as required. And before too long we were headng down to street level, for some more regular industrial photography of the construction site itself. All in all, an interesting mornings work !
