Pioneer is a leading independent supplier to the catering trade in the UK, with it’s main depot in Carlisle.  Pioneer are in the process of expanding their premises.  Their new retail outlet is under construction at Rosehill and is set to open soon, which is exciting.  I am providing commercial photography of the Pioneer team at work.

Liquid Studios are busy building a new website for Pioneer.  Along with their quality local produce, Pioneer are keen to promote themselves as a personal and friendly business.

Commercial Photography in a working environment

The objective of this commercial photography shoot is to capture the Pioneer people at work.  And what an interesting session!

Photographing in a working environment does come with challenges.   Working within tight timescales, being mindful of health & safety and working with available artificial light can be a bit limiting.  However it does feel honest and real.  I really enjoyed this session.  It’s great to meet new people and have the chance to see at first hand some great butchery skills.  The morning took in the delivery depot, warehouse, retails section & the telesales team.  I particularly enjoy being out on the depot, seeing deliveries being put together.  The banter was friendly and the team are a positive and friendly bunch.

Highlights include watching sausages being made (and all hand linked!) and loading up the delivery vans (the team obliged be re-loading a couple of times to get extra pics).  It was also fun in the telesales office (half the team mysteriously disappeared when I got my camera out!)

I have included a small selection of images that give a little insight into the activity behind the scenes at Pioneer.  I’m looking forward to seeing the new website when live.  I’m also very much looking forward to shopping the new Pioneer retail outlet next spring! 🙂
