This has been a rough year and we have had to make the tough decision to discontinue services indefinitely. I wish I had better news. 14 years ago when my partner and I started this venture we both had a passion for construction, technology, and photography. Unfortunately like many web startups we are shutting down. I’ve done my best to keep the lights on but it’s time to say goodbye.

I appreciate all your business over the years, have a safe, prosperous, and healthy 2021. If you have questions please reach out to me via email = brian@jobsitevisitor.com. Thank you for your understanding.

Brian Sweeney
CEO JobSiteVisitor

Offline Archived Version:
The offline version runs locally on your machine using any browser. The pages have limited functionality. The following features are supported; Plan Viewer with Point Photos, Weekly Photos, Folders, and Searching, and Original File Downloads. I should mention that Miscellaneous Photos do not show up in the plan viewer but are included in the Weekly Photos page. The offline version will be exported and then a downloadable link will be sent via email. There is a $250 processing charge for any project that you need archived. These archived projects can be shared with others so projects only need to pay for one archive.

CON-EXPO Progress Photos

Every 3 years the CON-EXPO rolls around. This year JobSiteVisitor is exhibiting at the show in the new Information Technology and Business Solution Pavilion (AKA Hilton Center). You can find us at Booth #31720 over at the Hilton with all the other IT companies.

It’s great to be in Vegas for this event. We’re in the process of setting up our booth so we thought we’d share some progress photos of the process. These photos are taken from inside the Hilton Center and the Hilton Pavilion. We’re looking forward to a great show. Enjoy the photos and JobSiteVisitor.

Canon PowerShot S90

Great “Point & Shoot” camera for Construction Photos:

Canon S90 front and BackOver the past few years contractors have been asking me to recommend a good “point and shoot” camera for their construction progress photos. I’ve never had a great answer for them other than find a brand name (Canon, Nikon, Kodak, Panasonic), make sure it has a date stamp, and spend around $250. There are so many small point and shoot cameras out on the market today it’s really been a toss up until now. Late last year Canon released its PowerShot S90 and if you’re in the market for a great “point and shoot” camera for construction photos you’ve got to check out the S90.

This camera is great for construction photography because it produces outstanding images in a variety of lighting conditions, specifically low light. For the camera geeks in the audience this is done through a wide aperture of f/2.0 and an optical Image Stabilizer (IS) that helps reduce blur. I also like the fact that the camera is fully manual which allows photographers to adjust shutter speed and aperture without having to invest in an expensive professional digital SLR camera.

The Canon S90 is ideal for contractors who need an affordable “point and shoot” camera that will take good photos in low light. I’m also recommending this camera to anyone who wants to start a construction photography business on a “shoe string” budget. You don’t need to run out and spend $3K on an expensive D-SLR camera and lense. The S90 combined with JobSiteVisitor’s construction photo hosting service makes it extremely affordable to get your construction photography business up and running. Then after you land your first job or two you can go out and buy a better camera, and you’ll always have the S90 as backup.

Unemployment Graph

I’m a visual guy and things make much more sense to me when they’re displayed properly. For example everyone keeps talking about how the unemployment rate keeps going up.  Latoya Egwuekwe created the following visual chart as a graduate student at American University showing the “Geography of Recession” by displaying the changing unemployment rates over time, it’s very well done.
