Mining Mexico | Mine Photographer

Exploration drillers had their drill rig setup on the side of a mountain just on the outskirts on Chihuahua Mexico.  These two ment business but I managed to grab a few minutes of their time to create this image for the company.

I captured this Exploration Drill Rig on the side of a mountain in Chihuahua Mexico.  These Drill rigs(and drillers) work around the clock, night and day to get the core samples needed for the company that hired them.

Mining Scoop | Mine Photographer

As I posted before, getting the payload out of the groundis only part of the battle.  These huge underground mining scoops carry huge amounts of paydirt to the surface to be processed.

Mining Maniac | Mine Photographer

I believe I took this image  somewhere in Utah (It was somewhere in the States) years ago.    I remember finishing the actual image we needed for the project and while taking a break I asked “Miner Moe” to make a crazy face like he was playing an Xbox, because the controls he was using was controlling some heavy equipment, it reminded me of a video game.  Sometimes you just got too let them have fun.  He loved the image!

Core Shack – Mine Photographer

Core Shacks are relatively small, and sometimes it's hard to get a great shot while inside as using a wide angle lense can really distort the edges of the frame.  Climbing on top of the core shack and photographing from the outside in is better perspective to show the core shack and the drill.

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.

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.
