Last week I did my very first industrial photography shoot for Hodgman Drainage out of Dodge Center, Minnesota. Hodgman specializes in agricultural drainage, excavation, municipal services, residential services and directional drilling. They are a family-owned operation that began in 1982.
I have been a commercial photographer, including industrial photography, for 26 years and love when I get to photograph industrial projects, such as this. There’s just something about hanging out with a bunch of hard working men and women doing something that I wouldn’t have a clue how to do. And when there is big machinery and piles of dirt and rocks it’s just fun to get right in there and try to capture some cool moments in some awesome light. It’s also interesting to see what goes into projects like this residential development in Dodge Center, Minnesota.
