Client: Mindworks Marketing
The brief: Capture stills from along the Ford Halewood production line. Capture activity of staff.
Working on behalf of Mindworks Marketing we visited Fords' Halewood manufacturing plant based in Merseyside.
After a brief induction, we met with a production line representative who allowed us access to the assembly line. Without interfering with production we captured the engineers assembling and testing gearboxes prior to installation. It was important to work with the available ambient light as setting up studio lights could cause a hazard, also keeping the scene looking as natural as possible was paramount to the reportage look.
Here follows a small selection of pictures provided to the client.
Following our visit, Ford announced a significant investment to create a brand new electric manufacturing line, and these images were used widely in the media to promote the investment. See below.
Greg is one of those rare photographers that can turn his hand to almost any task. Not only is the visual output exceptional, but the very nature of the way he works is cooperative, flexible and makes the whole process easy to manage. In short, It’s always a pleasure to work with him and receive images that are always on brief and really meet our requirements.
