Wandering alone through a cold, stark industrial landscape – sounds like fun to photographer Brian Smale. “Maybe it’s weird – I just like doing industrial pics,” he laughs.
Whether for clients like Atlantic Power, or for creative exploration, Brian is repeatedly drawn to the sharp lines and dramatic silhouettes of factories and machinery.
And while he’s found himself in some down and very dirty locations during his personal pursuits, he doesn’t dwell on that. “Some of these facilities may not have a feel-good vibe,” he says. “But I’m just there for the lines.”
Based in Seattle, Brian is best known for his arresting portrait work, along with his corporate and location photography. He’s partnered with a diverse roster of clients including Fuji, GE, USAA and many more.
