Behind the Scenes: Cleveland Vibrator Company

You read that title right, Cleveland Vibrator Company. We’re spending the week photographing the hardworking all-American men and women behind an almost century old company in Cleveland Ohio. They manufacture and design industrial and scientific vibration equipment – think industrial mixers and conveyor-belts, not wherever else your mind might have wandered (the gutter perhaps?). It’s an amazing location filled with genuine people who we’ve had a chance to meet and photograph this week.

I’m sure we’ll be back to shoot more in the future but for now enjoy the video above and keep reading for more behind the scenes photos.

We’re fortunate to have amazing spaces to photograph in – you couldn’t find or create a better scene that describes American manufcaturing.

All of the employees have been great, working with us and understanding our process of making pictures, like in this shot above where Chris is showing one of them a composition.

 

Aside from the usual portraiture, we’re working on plenty of environmental shots and even a few still-lives, like this one where Chris is perched atop an industrial plasma-cutting bed. You know, just another day at the office.

  1. Chris – So wish I knew you were going to be in my home town. I would have come out to offer a hand (and learn a little too). If you ever need a free assist who’s familiar with your gear, let me know. It would be my pleasure to help.

    P.S. – Great company name!
