John Lawrie Group brought me in to capture their Tubulars operation based Montrose. The company wanted me to capture their work at the quayside as well as their storage and cutting at their own yard. Each setting called for a different approach – the quayside operation is a live environment which means I had to stand back, observe and get the camera in the right place at the right time while not endangering myself or others. At the base I was able to get involved and set things up with more care which allowed me to portray personnel in the best light. Different scenarios call for different approaches and with over 11 years of experience, we know when to step back and when to step in.
