Dwight Magee talks about the life of an industrial photographer at North West Photo Fest

From photographing corporate leaders to the people who actually make the products we use every day, Dwight Magee’s life as a corporate photographer has never been short of subjects to capture and challenges that most photographers have never thought of.

Working in an industrial environment means dealing with dusty conditions and the problems that causes with lenses and censors. Fighting magnetism which impacts both the cameras ability to focus and it’s shutter system. Put on a pair of oven mitts and try and take photos with your camera and you’ll start to understand the safety considerations an industrial photographer also has to work around.

The job is never dull. Some days you’re standing outside a helicopter on it’s landing skid flying at 4,000 feet and some days you’ll find yourself unexpectedly stuck on a mountain top. And then there are the days you’re working in 100 degree plus conditions.

Dwight will share  a collection of photographs he has taken over the years working and share first hand some of the challenges he has faced to get the photos that most take for granted.
