About Us

RaPAX® Construction Photography was established in early 2014 to provide the construction industry with professional photographers that understand construction and the dangers of working on a busy work site, in conjunction with a thorough understanding of photography. The team at RaPAX® includes videographers, photographers, and editors, with a thorough understanding of the etiquette for filming on a modern construction site.

RaPAX® is managed by Michael Wells, who not only has an Engineering degree, but also has over 30 years’ experience in construction related photography.

A distinguishing feature of our photographers, is that they actually know what is happening on the works site; they understand the sequence of the work, the danger areas, and the jargon/terminology to ensure clear communication of the project requirements and deliverable. 

Our services include:

  • Time lapse cameras, from several hours to several years.
  • Ground and aerial photography and videogrpahy
  • CASA licensed drone operation
  • 40 feet carbon fibre pole cams
  • Underwater camera solutions
  • SWMS and other risk controlling documentation ensuring safety in all steps of the process
  • Public Liability insurance to $20m
  • PPE applicable for todays construction industry

    Safety

    Operation of photographic equipment and RPAs (Drones) on construction sites requires competence and understanding of both construction site safety, aviation, and photography protocols. 

    RaPAX® is well placed to meet these fundamental safety requirements by virtue that each of its operators has extensive construction industry experience and has a comprehensive understanding of construction etiquette in conjunction with photography fundamentals.

    Construction Site Safety

    The crew at RaPAX®  have been active in the construction and photographic industries for many years. Our Director has 30 years experience photographing and working on major infrastructure projects both here in Queensland and on the international stage.

    As a result of this background RaPAX® has in place a strong safety culture, with relevant PPE, safety equipment, documentation and most importantly clear concise communication.

    Aviation Safety

    RaPAX® has been operating drones commercially for over 4 years. The systems, processes and controls of our drone operations have been stringently reviewed, observed and approved by the Civil Aviation Authority (CASA). RaPAX® is CASA “certified for operation”.
