Where to find factory images

Industrial sites are among some of the most dynamic and interesting spaces, making factory images especially popular in recent years. Factory walls offer beautiful wallpapers as a backdrop for portraits stacked factory equipment and containers create fascinating patterns for the eye to follow, and even billowing smoke from factory equipment has a certain visual allure.

A constant at any factory site is transportation equipment. Whether it’s shipping arrivals into port in an industrial zone, cranes building something new on-site, or rows of cars and trucks acquired over time, the underlying themes of travel and transportation are closely tied to factories. The same goes for layered textures, from painted brick walls marking loading areas, to cement buildings featuring geometric patterns. You’ll be surprised at how surprisingly photogenic factories can be.

Factory photos give off an entirely different impression when they show stark, empty lots versus photos brimming with people carrying on a day’s work. Depending on whether you’re looking for a moody, artistic option or something a bit warmer and more candid, consider experimenting with factory images that do and don’t include humans.

Finding great pictures of factories is a fun creative challenge. It takes an open mind and an eye for captivating patterns to see visual appeal in a factory space — but once you find the perfect shot, there’s no denying it really is beautiful. Regardless of the specific project you’re sourcing factory pictures for, start by browsing Burst collections. Explore our contributed images as you narrow in on the right image for your project, then download it for free when you’ve found the one.
