Paige Baker is an industrial photographer originally from the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in western North Dakota.
He has spent four years working in the Bakken oilfield in a range of different jobs. Firstly as a roustabout, working facility construction, wellhead construction/maintenance, and equipment operation. Then, as a roustabout crew foreman followed by his time as a pumper/lease operator. After two years of this, it was off to photography school, then back to the booming bakken where he worked as a division manager, overseeing the operations of the environmental division of an oilfield services company. His experience working directly with upstream and midstream companies in it’s various environments gives him valuable insight into the workings of the oil and gas industry and translates to authentic and powerful imagery he creates. Whether you are looking to furnish your office with specific pieces of oilfield fine art or wanting to hire a photographer to create an image library to market your specific service or company, contact him and trust that you’ll be provided with the highest quality work. His time in the oilfield working from the ground up gave him access and insight into the many facets and views of the oilfield. His home will forever be western North Dakota, and in the midst of a busy operation, I am able to simplify with my camera, and capture impactful and concise pictures.
Paige's time spent working in the oilfield instilled a strong sense of safety and communication. He will work within the set guidelines at all times and strive to continually “over communicate” to make sure he goes above and beyond what is expected of him for the customer.
