In celebration of National Surveyors week, March 17 – 23, we wanted to take another look at our Field Photography Contest winners of 2018.
Introduced in 2017, Fenstermaker’s annual photo contest was created to allow all team members an insight into the world of the company’s field personnel. Fenstermaker is always looking for ways to nurture the company’s culture and strengthen understanding of the entire project process. This program was launched in an effort to help team members understand the value of the work performed by others in various divisions of the company. There’s nothing better for developing respect between disciplines than sharing information and offering the opportunity to look at things from someone else’s perspective.
In 2017 and 2018, entries were submitted from a wide range of project types and locations. The contests give Fenstermaker’s field personnel an opportunity to express themselves and tell a story. Some images capture beautiful project sites or a glimpse of unique things seen along the way. These photographs tell us a story of the life of our people in the field and give us an insight into a side of our business we don’t always get to see.
Congratulations again to our 2018 winners and thanks to all who participated.
1st Place – Rick Zaunbrecker
Underwater Acoustics International
This picture was taken by Rick Zaunbrecker near New Orleans, LA during a culvert inspection project for Orleans Levee District. The vanishing railroad track gives the photographer a visually interesting perspective.
2nd Place – Travis Gaconnet
Survey Division – Instrumentman
On his third week with Fenstermaker, Travis Gaconnet snapped this award-winning shot on a project site in DeBerry, Texas. The rows of trees provide an interesting backdrop for the conventional survey instrument.
3rd Place – Chad Laukhuff
Survey Division, Party Chief
Often our survey crews find themselves in remote locations with captivating views. Chad Laukhuff captured this amazing sunset while on a pipeline as-built project in Ward County, Texas.
Going out into the field is a common occurrence for project managers on our Engineering team. Director Dax Douet gives us an interesting perspective of the ongoing Kaliste Saloom at E. Broussard roundabout project.
Be on the lookout! The 2019 Field Photography Contest kicks off May 1st!
