Architectural Photography for Remodeling Contractors

How do remodeling contractors impress potential clients?

The short answer is simple, show off your work.  Having high quality photography made of all of your completed projects is must have for contractors who wants to build their business.  Most purchasing decisions begin with a search and one of the best ways to get attention on the internet is to use images.  High quality photography will convince a homeowner to hire you to remodel their home better than a verbal pitch.  The old axiom “show them, don’t tell them” rings true today especially because photography provides high engagement rates in social media marketing and  internet promotions.

Sample architectural photography by commercial photographer Dan Splaine of Test of Time Photography in Nashua, NH.  The photography shown was made for a remodeling contractor client to promote their company.

Hire a Pro to photograph your remodeling projects

Have a qualified professional shoot architectural photography of your building projects.  DYI photography is fine for documenting job progress but it falls flat when you want to showcase your work.  Professional building contractors know the difference between a homeowner built kitchen and one installed by a qualified contractor.  The same logic applies to photography – hire a pro if you want the project done right.


Test of Time photography  provides architectural photography, construction progress photography and promotional photography for contractors  builders and architects.  Contact photographer Dan Splaine at info@testoftimephoto.com  to find out about our services and to book your next construction project photo shoot.

Location Photography Services for Business

The mark of a professional photographer is the ability to create original, high quality images regardless of the shooting conditions.


One of the hallmarks of my photographic career is an uncanny ability to shoot in any type of location, in any type of conditions and to consistently produce high quality photography.  Adaptability as a photographer was I skill learned when I started out as an Army photographer.  Anticipate, adapt, overcome is the mantra of an infantryman and the way Uncle Sam trained me how to approach each assignment.  The goal was always get the image regardless of conditions and that is how I still work today.

My corporate photography assignment and editorial shoots involve photography at locations around the world.  The range of shooting conditions run the gamut from primitive to regal, depending on the client.  The job is and always has been for me to produce photography that illustrates the clients communication objective.  If I’m standing butt deep in mud or hanging of a rooftop ledge it really does not matter, I will do what it takes to get the photo.  An adventurous spirit helps but the skills and technique that my long experience behind the camera ensures that I always hit the mark.

This approach works for photography in the corporate setting equally well.  Sometimes clients can’t get to the studio or  remote employees are gathering in one location for a brief amount of time.  No problem, I bring my fully mobile studio ability to the client location.  Sometimes in an industrial photography assignment access to a difficult or sensitive settings is limited.  I can get in and get out  rapidly, working with the conditions as they exist to get the photos the client needs.

I have more that thirty years experience adapting to conditions and locations,  producing original and  effective visual communication with my photography.  If you have a difficult location, a once in a lifetime event  or you operate in an extreme conditions please get in touch.  I will welcome you challenging conditions and of course create the photography that shows you and your organization at their best.

During my recent appearance on his radio show we discussed the value that quality business photography and portraits have in marketing, public relations and social media.  I guess I made my point, because he recently came into the TEST of TIME Photography studio for his own business portrait session.  From that portrait sitting we created a number of images and he is having some difficulty deciding which one is his favorite.

The “HELP KEVIN PUT HIS BEST FACE FORWARD” promotion is how you can help him with that decision and help yourself at the same time.  We are offering a $75 voucher towards the purchase of a business portrait session to everyone who votes.  When you vote you will entered  into a drawing for our grand prize the CHAIRMAN of THE BOARD PORTRAIT PACKAGE.  This is an editorial style portrait session shot on location worth $499.
