How the perfect location can make your product photography stand out


For Saturn Lounge, a successful industrial photo shoot includes showcasing the clients product(s) in a eye catching environment. A fantastic example of such a photo project would be a recent shoot for Lakeland Industries. Lakeland Industries creates protective garments that protect people from fire, hazardous chemicals, and diseases. Their protective gear is used throughout the world.

Our client suggested a wonderfully unique location to accomplish the application photography; a National Historic Landmark called Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, AL. Sloss Furnaces was once the largest manufacturer of pig iron in the world. It stands today just as it did in the late 19th century — a monument to the Industrial Revolution. After closing in 1971, it became one of the first industrial sites in the U.S. to be preserved and restored for public use.

Lakeland takes pride in the design and manufacturing of a wide variety of technologically advanced protective clothing for workers in a number of industries in which hazardous materials must be handled, including chemical, fire service, gas and electric utilities, healthcare and many more. We couldn’t think of a better way to showcase their protective clothing gear than photographing on such a unique back drop. In-house Saturn Lounge Producer Shelly Nordquist handled all details of the photo project, bringing in talent that would wear Lakelands gear and make for some great application photography shots. Ian Farnham and Connor Bruesewitz brought the photo expertise. We are proud to showcase the image library
