Last fall, I spent a few days photographing several biomass facilities for ReEnergy Holdings, an energy producer based in New York. I’ve worked with ReEnergy for several years to create a library of images for use in their ongoing marketing efforts. The idea was to photograph their facilities and the work being done there in a way that captured the mood, atmosphere and scale of their various locations throughout New England. I love being able to show the gritty details of hard work through commercial and industrial photography. My approach is to keep things as authentic and real as possible while adding light in a believable way, in order to augment and help tell the story. As with all such work, time is always at a premium and the ability to be efficient and focused is absolutely critical.
