Exploration Drilling – Mine Photographer

Exploration Drilling is some of my favorite on location shoots to cover.  Always in a new area outdoors, on the side of mountains, in the bush, or on a rocky plateau. Sometimes on the job site for Exploration Drilling all you need is the right angle and the right lighting.  In this case it was all about using the British Columbia  sunshine.

Don't forget you can sign up for the Mining Industrial Photographer blog posts in the upper right corner of the site.

Mine Photos Photography

This is an image I did years ago but had to resurect it from the files.    I lost the rubber boot from one of my tripod legs in the grate on the floor.  I bet it's still there somewhere.

Inside The ROD MILL – Mine Photographer

It's not everyday you get to see the inside of a Rod Mill, so I quickly captured this image while I was passing through.  The available light was just enough to give me the dramatic effect I wanted while still illuminating the inside details.

The Forklift Operator

On my recent assignment I had the opportunity to photograph all sorts of Industrial Mining operations including this forklift operator.   I wanted to focus on the person and not necesarily on the forklift where as by zooming out to get the whole vehicle you would lose sight of who was operating it.

Maybe you should hire a Mine Photographer

Oh sure, you can do your own photography, but would you let a photographer run your scoop?  A Jackleg?  Maybe weld something?  No?  Then why do you "think" you can take  high impact photos?  Because of photoshop?  Your expensive camera?  Instagram?  The app on your iphone does some cool stuff?    A scoop has a gas, brake and steering wheel right?  Well I know how to drive, but there are loads of factors that also go into the process of operating a scoop, just like there are loads of factors that are involved in creating high impact images for you company.

Premier Bulk Systems On Delivery

While on the jobsite today I had the chance to photograph a bit outside while a Permier Delivery Driver was offloading some cargo.  This was the perfect opportunity to not only get the employee engaging with the contractor, but to also showcase the drivers truck and business relationship with his clients.   Premier Bulk Systems is a specialized bulk highway carrier of finished chemicals, performance products and other liquid commodities.

Industrial Safety

Safety is always the main focus during any job in the mining/industrial field.  It's VERY important when photographing subject matter like this that all elements of safety are met.  Here is an image from todays shoot.  Steel cable is a MUST when suspended high above the ground.
