Heath & Safety Photography promoting essential workers distributing PPE.

Working tirelessly behind the scenes, businesses have been working 24 hours a day to ensure that lives are saved by ensuring essential protective equipment, emergency food boxes and tests kits are stored, packed and delivered across the UK. We worked with Norse Total Facilities Management division, to document the PPE team at a secret location as they responded to requests for PPE, prepared orders and planned deliveries to care homes, social work teams, schools, district councils, fire services and test and trace teams, as well as delivering food to households in need, or to people shielding.

Through the absolute height of the pandemic, the Norse Group ensured that their exacting levels of safe working practices remained in place for those who remained in work. reducing any potential spread of coronavirus was imperative. Durng the first lockdown in 2020, we worked on Health and Safety Photography assignments with The Incident Management Team (IMT)  producing important training material in line with changing Government guidance.  The work assisted with the Group maintaining frontline services with the correct control measures in place, protecting staff and customers to the correct level of restrictions within the appropriate local tier level.

Lateral Flow Rapid Test Centre Health and Safety Photography

Rapid Flow Testing for Covid-19 has been an important measure in identifying those who might be carrying and spreading the virus without knowing it. Symptom-free community COVID testing is being rolled out across Norfolk after successful pilots in the east and west of the county.We were assigned during the pandemic to document the opening of a brand new testing facility. Imagery would be used for PR, Press and promotional purposes, but would also serve to provide up to date images of test procedures being carried out that could be used in future case studies, printed documents and online news articles.

PR Photography is never better than when it’s delivery a good news story. We live in an age where Covid-19  has overtaken every element of our lives, so when a Press Photography assignment has a positive spin, it does make a photographers assignment so much more enjoyable. And that’s just what has happened as Norse Group and Norfolk County Council recently announce Seven new high-tech gritting vehicles will be helping keep Norfolk’s roads safe this winter. Norse Highways teams will be behind the wheel s of this super fleet of vehicles that received some great PR Photography attention at the unveiling ceremony at the Ford & Slater Group in Norwich. The seven new vehicles are being rolled out this winter as part of Norfolk County Council’s plans to update and replace its fleet of gritters. The vehicles will be managed and driven by Norse Highways and Over the winter months, with highly trained crews available every day to grit 49 routes that cover more than 2,200 treated miles across Norfolk. Last year over 10,800 tonnes of salt were used to grit Norfolk’s roads. Jason Glasspoole, Operations Director at Norse Highways, said his team was ready for the job in hand as the conditions now begin to turn colder.

“The new technology is more efficient at salt distribution and you get almost instant results and adjustments in the amount of salt being dispensed on to the road and the area of coverage,” he said. “All of which is even more efficient.”

Norfolk PR PhotographyCllr Martin Wilby, Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure, said:

“These new gritters will have a long road ahead of them, as Norse Highways teams do their vital job to keep people safe as the colder weather sets in throughout the winter. It’s important for us to stay up to date and use the latest technology to be as efficient as possible, which is why we’re making these replacements. But it’s also important that people drive to conditions and be more careful as the nights draw in and we start seeing ice in the mornings.”

Norwich PR PhotographyIt’s not all about the Press! PR Photography has a multitude of uses.

If you are trying to reach your market on social media, the recent evolution of all platforms toward a more image-based feed should give you some clues. Research shows that posts with accompanying quality PR Photography images see a huge increase in engagement levels. This kind of engagement is hard to ignore.  Professional Photographs will make people stop and look at your social content, so invest in powerful images that sell your products and services. As far back as 2018, marketeers were indicating that over 80% of customers viewed at least 5 pieces of PR content before making a purchase from their supplier. Essentially, this means it taking  five or more touch points (a direct mail, an advert, some online content) for you to win over potential clients. Taking a consistent approach to PR Photography and marketing really is essential.  It’s not enough to have a one-off editorial article if all of your other blog posts and social media content is sub standard. Having a consistent, high quality approach will project a positive perception of your business.   You might think this is costly but the good news is that PR Photography from Blanc Creative Norwich is affordable and represents great value for money. Your business can have a library of bespoke commercial photographs covering everything about your business from Headshots, Team Photography and  PR photos for your internal or external communications. Our images are licensed without any time restrictions across all digital and printed media platforms.

Corporate Event doesn’t have to be about the Social Calendar or Evening Drinks Receptions. Blanc Creative work extensively with Manufacturing Plants, Construction Companies Industrial Businesses. Blanc Creative were commissioned to cover the official opening of  a bespoke production facility at the Stainless Metalcraft Chatteris site, where manufacture of high integrity nuclear waste containers would be built  which. These containers play a key role in the decommissioning of high hazard legacy’s at Sellafield Nuclear Power Plant.Blanc Creative have a team that can provide not only Editorial and Press Images, but Corporate Event Photography, Corporate Video Production and Aerial Drone Coverage as well as on site Event Photography Printing. The Diversity that we offer for Corporate Events with a trained team means that we can provide clients with extremely affordable Corporate Event Photography without the need to employee two or three separate companies to deliver visual imagery.

Stainless Metalcraft won a contract in 2015, initially worth £47m, to manufacture three metre cubed boxes to store intermediate level waste retrieved from Sellafield’s Pile Fuel Cladding Silos.  A 1,600 square metre production facility in Chatteris was developed with potential to expand the site to 3,200 square metres as demand increased. As part of the project, an investment was made in excess of £2m on capital expenditure to purchase plant and equipment tools for the facility. This includes a robotic welding cell offering both plasma and MIG welding; two new machine tool cells; test and assembly cells incorporating vacuum, pressure and dimensional inspection facilities; and a specialist cavity mixing and filling cell installed at the site. Austen Adams, managing director of Stainless Metalcraft and Avingtrans PLC’s Energy and Medical division, said: “The decommissioning of the UK’s nuclear legacy is a challenging task, and we’re delighted that Sellafield recognised the specialist skills that we offer here in the Fens.  Opening the new facility is a real landmark in delivering this important contract and was a significant challenge as construction works – including strengthening foundations to support the heavy machine tools required – had to go on alongside existing operations.”
