Tilt-Up construction by Suntec Concrete, a heavy lifting process.

In the Fall of 2016 I was hired to do construction photography for the lifting of one of the walls for the iFly skydiving place that Suntec Concrete is building in Scottsdale, AZ. This particular lift was going to be one of the largest and heaviest lift they have done. On a tilt-up process the walls are built on the grounds and when ready they are lifted and set in place. It is a process that takes a great deal of preparation and precision. As a photographer, I need to be very aware of my surroundings and anticipate what will be happening in order to capture the perfect image. Safety comes first. You have to be synch with everyone. You cannot afford to get distracted. It will get you in a lot of trouble. Construction photography is something I have done for many years. I find it appealing. Structures of concrete and steel are my canvas. I look for lines, shapes and shadows to create my compositions and tell the story that I see.
