Activities Worth Dramatizing
I photograph construction scenes in unique and definitive ways: still photography, time-lapse and live-action videos. For dramatic effect, content is selected based on movement and moment, and blended together in post-production. A successful tableau requires awareness, patience, endurance and a high tolerance for noise and dirt.
Light, Movement & Moment
When photographed correctly, peak moments of construction activity turn into human tableaus. The formal name is Tableau Vivant, French for Living Picture and I could not find a more appropriate identifier for my work. Like a Tableau Vivant painted onto a blank canvas, construction photography quite easily lends itself to dramatization. Delivering these moments to you with clarity and quality is my mission.
Struck By Lighting
When optimum ambient lighting conditions exists, I search for the moments worth photographing…and wait until the individual or group contained within the cameras viewfinder relate to each other as if I had controlled and composed the photograph from scratch. If I’m lucky you‘ll experience the emotions of the moment too. These tableaus work especially well for social media, websites, trade shows, community outreach and internal communications.
Tableau Vivant Partie Deau – The Individual
The individual construction worker, on the job and unaware of my presence, make great tableaus too:
