Construction & Civil Engineering Photographer

Construction and civil engineering work is often about building dreams, but when the work is still in progress most people only see the mess, the dust and inconvenience.

When a construction company can show how their plans are taking shape, coming together and turning dreams to reality, those images keep everyone enthused, excited and focused on the final result. Providing investor progress information can be a key factor for future contracts. The construction photographers at Greg Harding Photography understand this from their extensive experience shooting construction projects.

We’ve lots of these types of site experience having worked on a broad spectrum of projects. We’ve been involved in long 4/5 year hospital construction sites, short one-off contracts with schools, residential property builders, crane & concrete suppliers, steel manufacturers, principle contractors and architects. One of our most recent long term and exciting projects involves the photography of a power station in Manchester. It’s an impressive and ambitious construction project that aims to capture the progress over a 36 month period. Our centralised position in the North West makes us an obvious choice for construction photographers based in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Sheffield and the surrounding Cheshire and North West area.

One of our increasing popular services is construction site aerial capture. Using the very latest in UAV or drone technology, we are able to capture a breath-taking aerial perspective that will truly transform how your site is viewed. We’ll show how your project sits within its immediate surroundings and how the light plays across the upper most surface of the buildings. These stunning views are captured for a fraction of the cost of hiring a helicopter or aeroplane.
