As a young photographer with News Limited Pete Glenane learnt quickly to deal with anything, find the shot and always come back with an image that tells a story.
“You had to learn to be adaptable to any situation, you just couldn’t be sure what would happen. I learnt to work efficiently under pressure to very high standards. Working in news was exciting, grounding and humbling.”
After ten years of capturing the big news stories, Pete moved on to build a successful career in commercial photography with his company HiVis Pictures providing a full suite of services including, industrial photography, time-lapse, drone, videography and video production.
“The first time I stood in a huge industrial landscape with my camera was so compelling and I’ve never lost the buzz of ‘being there’ and contributing to an honoured tradition of capturing ordinary people doing extraordinary things in their everyday work”.
HiVis Pictures success is built around a commitment to three values:
- Story telling – showing the narrative of the project and the people that work on it.
- Aesthetics – creating beautiful content that lasts.
- Reliability – old school service: punctuality, meeting the brief and delivering the job.
Pete loves documenting all subjects but capturing industrial, construction and architectural environments are his passion.
