FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Geoff Brown occupies a very fortunate niche -  being able to combine a lifelong facination and passion for both photography and the industrialised world.  This and years of experience is the backbone to creating compelling, unusual and exciting industrial and corporate photographs.

From a personal point of view, being involved in industrial photography is like living on the Discovery channel, and each shoot is an opportunity to share that experience with the viewer.

From the operational side, being properly prepared and expecting the unexpected, which comes from years of experience, is the only way to make sure we are in the right place at the right time, for best light and subject interest, to create the best possible images.

THE STUDIO

The Planet KB studio is located in Rivonia, north of Johannesburg on 2000 square meters of garden.

Although corporate and industrial photography is mostly confined to location, there are occasions where the studio is essential in rounding out the full service offered.

The 200 square meter, purpose built studio is capable of handling large sets and vehicles and is fully air conditioned. It has a solid concrete infinity curve (cyclorama) across two sides of it's 13 metre width as well as an electrically driven, centre tilting and rotating, 10 x 5 metre bounce-board.

The
Blog

I'll give the blog thing a go - unfortunately almost all of my work is commissioned and has to remain unreleased until it appears for the first time in it's intended publication. This means I can only put up corporate and industrial photography that was shot a while ago. But I'm going to make an effort to do some more behind the scenes coverage as well as putting up some retrospective shoots. It really is a fascinating field (to me anyway) and right now, aside from my assistant, I'm the only one that gets to see it all.
