We love abandoned places and the stories they hold within their old walls. There is not only a special beauty to them but reminders of days gone by. Far too many times we have seen these once great places become nothing more than remnants of the past. One of the best ways to preserve these memories is to capture them with photographs so that their memory will remain long after they become nothing more than a memory.
Our specialty is urban exploring photography or photography of abandoned places. If you own or manage or can help us, get in touch with someone who does then we would love to hear from you. We also provide personal requests for those who have family-owned homes that are abandoned. For example, if your grandpa’s birth home is still standing and you own or can give legal permission to photograph it, we’d love to preserve those precious memories as well. Don’t wait because these places won’t last forever but their memory can.
This is our favorite service and is completely free within our service area. After you submit a request, you will be contacted so that we can get more information on your project. We will discuss things like what you are looking for, the location of place to be photographed and more details. After arrangements are made, we will send you some forms to be signed giving us permission to visit the location if you do not plan on meeting up with us in person. If you do plan on meeting us in person you can fill out the forms then. These forms help both parties have the best experience possible without any legal problems from neighbors, folks driving by, insurance claims and law enforcement. We will then go to the location to check it out before the date of session for safety and security reasons as well as come up with a plan.
After the forms are signed and a plan is in place, we will begin our session on arranged date (weather permitting) which varies in time depending on arranged time of day, location, size of location and other factors. Upon completion of our session you will be directed to your own personal digital gallery page so that you may save your digital photos.
Safety and security of our team is our highest priority. While our type of work doesn’t come without risks there are several things that can be prevented. This service is offered free of charge within our service area. In order for us to give you the best work possible please make sure your location to be photographed is easily accessible by foot or vehicle. We are NOT asking that it be in well-kept condition as if someone is living there however, we ask that the location is easily to get to, walk around and the fewer the obstacles the better. This also means that it is clear of dangerous animals, landscaping flaws such as holes, snaky areas or anything else that could be considered a high risk of injury.
Disclaimer: Because of high risk to injury in most abandoned places we only do exterior photographs however we can do interior shots as long as it is well kept and safe. If you are unsure your area will be considered for this service just contact us and let’s talk about it. For urban areas we also take the surrounding area into consideration, we do not offer any services to areas of high crime rates.
Please fill out the below form to make a request. We will then be in contact with you as soon as possible.
