Industrial Photographer in Indonesia
Industrial photography is how I started as a photographer in Indonesia. Let me share the story with you. After finishing my career in the corporate world, I founded a web design agency. And soon we branched out into other domains of corporate communication including the creating of CD-Roms, printed brochures and related materials.
Many of my web-design agency’s clients did not have any photographs. Often, they also did not have budgets for hiring a professional photographer.
So I kinda’ swindled myself into these projects claiming to be an industrial photographer. And guess what: I got away with that ‘swindle’. And over the period of a few years I gained a lot of experience photographing factories and plants in Indonesia.
Therefore, my claim of being an industrial photographer in Indonesia soon became a fact.
I very much enjoy doing industrial photography. I love the challenge of coming to a huge factory which at first sight has nothing interesting to photograph.
Over time I developed an eye for finding interesting motives. And like with all things in life – the more you do of it the better you become.
What I also love about photographing industrial activity in Indonesia is that I have been privileged to visit some of Indonesia’s largest factories. I gained access to many places most people will never see. Unless of course they are also involved with industrial projects.
In a way, my work as an industrial photographer in Indonesia had a significant ‘adventure’ component to it. And I visited some of Indonesia’s far flung islands and corners.
My work as an Industrial photographer in Indonesia took a backseat at the time when I went more and more into weddings and pre-wedding photography in Bali.
But I continued taking on assignments and one project even brought me to Malaysia.
After 2010 my work in Industrial photography more and more shifted towards mining & shipping. And I did so much work in that domain that my work as a mining photographer in Indonesia has its own section on this website.
So, without further ado here are some of the highlights of my work as an industrial photographer in Indonesia.
