It’s always nice when a publisher gets back in touch to shoot another cover for their magazine.
Australian transport and industrial magazine photo shoots require photographers to really look hard for image solutions.
When photographing heavy transport businesses and their vehicles, there’s no glamour to be found – everyone’s wearing high-vis, many people are reluctant to be photographed and portraits often require a truck’s bug-spattered front grill to be the background!

Of course, extreme angles and other techniques such as shooting into the sun for a silhouette or lens flare effect are just a few of the photographic techniques that can add impact to otherwise mundane industrial photography subjects.

Heavy industry, medium-light industry, haulage, storage, marine, industrial, cold storage, farming – I shoot Australia-wide.
