Below are two of his award-winning works. Adrian discusses the shoots in his own words:

Shoot for DuPont and Winner of 2018 EEF Photo Competition

Severfield plc is the largest structural steel specialist in the UK. Each week its Dalton site in North Yorkshire processes up to 1,000 tonnes of steel, all bound for projects across the United Kingdom. Among the many iconic buildings reliant on Severfield steel are The Shard, The Excel exhibition centre and Wimbledon's centre court. When painters at the site wanted a protective coverall that was lightweight and would allow them to work comfortably throughout their 10-hour shifts they turned to DuPont Protection Solutions. 

This photograph illustrates the painting process whereby the painter is protected by a Tyvek suit created by DuPont Personal Protection.


Shoot for Atlas Copco and Winner of 2017 EEF Photo Competition

Atlas Copco are a manufacturer of air systems. They develop innovative sustainable solutions that create value for their customers in more than 180 countries. Atlas Copco’s expertise is in compressors, vacuum solutions and air treatment systems, construction and mining equipment, power tools and assembly systems.


On this particular commission, Atlas Copco had installed two compressors at the site works of Natural Stone Surfaces at Chapel en le Frith.  Natural Stone Surfaces are a leading supplier of bespoke granite, marble, quartz and semi-precious stone work surfaces throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe.  Their role is to source high quality stone and cut worktops and surfaces for up market kitchens.


Since water is used throughout all stages of cutting and polishing the stone, electrical tools cannot be used.  Hence air powered tools are used.  Atlas Copco supply the air systems for the workshop to function.  Two exterior compressors deliver the necessary air throughout the factory which activates both hand tools and large scale cutting and handling machinery.


This photograph demonstrates the working conditions, the activity involved in the process and the craftsman ship required to polish a stone surface.


Photography on this site is by Adrian Waine, the award-winning industrial photographer.

We invited Adrian to use our site to showcase his wonderful talents because we wanted to demonstrate how visual media - which is, after all, what we do too! - can enhance, and even change, one's understanding of manufacturing.
