I realized today while working on my website that I never made a blog post of am industrial photography shoot I did at Central Sandblasting in the Minneapolis suburb of New Brighton, Minnesota, way back in December! Oops!

As a commercial industrial photographer in Minnesota since 1991 I have gotten to photograph all sorts of cool projects and places. Industrial shoots are one of my absolute favorites, so I was excited when I heard from Desirae at Central Sandblasting, who discovered my work while working on a new website for the company she and her husband, Matt, operate along with his brothers. This family-owned Minnesota company has state-of-the-art facilities with two large spray booths equipped with overhead cranes and one 250′ continuous rail line all in a 41,000 sq ft shop, which allows for year-round blasting and coating operations. Central Sandblasting is also equipped with two individual blast booths including one that is a fully automated, self-cleaning, self-recycling, steel grit system capable of handling a variety of blast media and any materials up to 120’ long by 20’ high by 20’ wide in overall size. They also have a pangborn wheelabrator capable of blasting plate up to 8′ wide and beams with a 36″ flange width and 36″ height.

Below are some highlights from my industrial photography shoot at this awesome facility. There’s a variety of working shots, equipment shots, as well as some environmental portraits of a few employees; my favorite. So enjoy!

If you have some industrial photography needs in Minnesota, or elsewhere, shoot me an email and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours!
