Business photography request
When Litter-Robot marketing team reached out to me, they were looking for manufacturing operation and business photography in Juneau, WI. In addition, they wanted updated business headshots for their executive team.
As an addicted learner, I am always fascinated to learn about new products and processes involved making them. So the fact that Litter-Robot is one of leading automated cat litter box manufacturers in United States, got me really excited.
Round No.1: Faces behind manufacturing in Juneau, WI
On a photoshoot day I arrived to Juneau, Wisconsin. First on my photography list I had lifestyle pictures around Litter-Robot business office. I found company’s founder and president Brad Baxter with his engineering team. They were discussing new product development, marketing team working in new strategies, etc.
Next on my list was and manufacturing facility/ warehouse. I transitioned there to photograph people working in assembly line and refurbishing department.
After that, during staff lunch break, I photographed variety of different angles of empty warehouse.
Employee business portraits
Next on the list was headshots of executive team. In addition, their marketing team wanted me to photograph relaxed business portraits of all warehouse workers as well. In my option, including hardworking folks and showing them same attention as the executives, was a brilliant idea.
A “thank you” gift? Yes please!
And of course, good run wouldn’t be nearly as good without getting a “little” gift for the work I’ve done. Before my departure marketing manager asked me – “You do have a cat, right?”. “I do!” was my response. “We had just adopted a cat couple weeks ago!”
“We need to get you one of our Litter robots then!” he smiled. He came back from the warehouse with a brand new Litter-Robot!
Definitely one of more memorable and useful “thank you” gifts I ever got!
Round No.2: Detroit connection
After delivering the images, couple days later, I received a phone call from Littler-Robot marketing team. Marketing team wanted me to travel to company’s headquarters in Detroit, MI. And use the same business photography approach.
After that, I was out for a round No.2!
Besides being one helluva exciting project to work on, while photographing for Litter-Robot I learn a lot. Seeing all behind the scenes work helped me to realized that US manufacturing is not dead. In fact, parts of it doing surprisingly well!
In conclusion, during my 4 day photoshoot I photographed over 60 people headshots and business operation. Beside that, I’ve got to travel to one of my favorite cities sin US- Detroit.
