Ramtech design and manufacture innovative wireless safety and security solutions. In particular, they wanted to photograph their WES+ fire alarm system which has been developed for construction sites. The system is able to wirelessly connect to the base station, usually in the site office. It can be placed in every aspect of a construction site.
With fire risk being quite high, a wireless system was very innovative. However, the devices themselves are quite small, and basically a white box. The brief was to photograph the system in place in and around various construction site settings, each had their own unique fire risk element to them.
Paul’s brief included photographing an apartment site in Manchester, a house build in Romford, and the start of a coffee shop fit-out under a church in Edinburgh, specifically in a crypt. The main aim was to showcase the system in-situ and within its context.
For example, to photograph it near a tradesman using a blowtorch to plumb radiators or grinding some stone, that generated sparks in a dry and dusty environment.
A great project, all with very difficult and challenging circumstances to work in.
