THE CROWN ESTATE
GIANT MACHINERY, DARK MINES AND VAST QUARRIES, THERE'S MORE TO THE CROWN ESTATE THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT.
This industrial photography commission for The Crown Estate involved traveling all over the country photographing quarries, saw mills and mines. The project was to document the extraction of mineral resources on Crown Estate land and create an image library covering the different stages of the process, from quarry site or forest to finished materials. The images would allow the resources to be advertised to contractors for use when for new buildings on other Crown Estate sites, rather than sourcing materials from elsewhere.
This sort of commercial industrial photography is very interesting as it offers a variety of subjects and challenges, from the dramatic slate quarries of North Wales to the amazing stone mine deep under Portland. Here are just a few of the results.
Please contact Simon Eldon to discuss your photography requirements, chat through the process and to provide you with a quote for your project. We are based just outside Lewes, in East Sussex, near to Brighton with photography clients in London, Sussex, Kent and Surrey and across England and the UK.
