Canadian Mining Expo 2013

Well I had a great time at the Timmins Canadian Mining Expo 2013.  I managed to get away form my booth the first morning and stroll through the tradeshow where Icaptured a few images of other booths that had some of my images on display.  This was one of the best Mining Shows I have attended and I am looking forward to next years.

Releasing The Catch.

Vale released approximately 1,000 walleye yearlings into Ramsey Lake today. The fish were raised in a 1,500 litre tank at the company’s greenhouse in Copper Cliff.  Vale has been raising fish in its Copper Cliff Greenhouse since 2011 to stock lakes and rivers in the Greater Sudbury Area. In the spring of last year, Vale released thousands of rainbow trout fingerlings into the Onaping River. Read More Here or read the  Sudbury Star Article


Sudbury Mine Truck Improved

Here is another added modification to one of Atlas Copco's mine truck.  Custom storage units on either side of the box for easy access to bits and tools.

Why does Atlas Copco hire me to photograph these little details on their custom fabrications?  Because these images will be used for powerpoint presentation, marketing brochures, internal news memos, website material and much more.  Contact me if you are interested in acquiring custom photography for your companies custom fabrications.

Mine Safety on & off the road.

It may not seem like much but even a simple modification added to this Atlas Copco (truck like custom Wheel Chock holders)  can make a life saving difference.  Safety is number one priority in the mining/industrial industry.

ZeeBest Mining T-Shirts On The Planet!

When Paul Ross contacted me asking if he could "borrow" a few of my Mining Images I was a bit hesitant in the reply until I discovered their usage.  Paul wanted to have the images incorporated into a T-Shirt design that he would then sell to the public with proceeds from sales going to the SickKids Foundation (Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto that supports research into Pediatric Illnesses).  So I sent a few images off to him  for approval and he then fired them off to his designer Tony Hogue of (Kickass Designer).  Several months later I am walking the 2013 Canadian Mining & Industrial Exposition show here in Sudbury and I came across Paul's booth featuring all the designs, clothing and cellphone cases.  (The cellphone cases are badass!).  Go stop by and pick up a few items (especially the ones featuring my images) and support Paul and Sick kids.  You can also see him at the Canadian Mining Expo in Timmins later next month.

Make Sure You Have “Key” Images

Every company should have an arsenal of "key" images that they can use for Mining Magazine Covers, articles, web-articles, blog posts, tradeshows and websites.  Don't get stranded when your company get's a write-up in a magazine or freatured in a industry blog site and you have nothing but point and shoot images to accompany the write up.

Seen below Vale was written up in Canadian Mining Magazine and featured some visually appealing images to accompany the writeup.


Corporate Headshots?

Why am I posting corporate headshots on my Mining/Industrial website?  Because I am finding myself photogaphing more and more of these for my Mining/Industrial clients.  CEO's, managers, sales reps and company executives all have headshots in which they update every year or so.  Sometimes I setup my studio in their shops or offices and photograph them on site for a quicker turnaround and minimal loss of production time.  Othertimes I will use companysurroundings as the backdrop for a more "environmental" edge to the portrait.  These portraits take minutes to setup and even less time to photograph.

Here are a few


Bringing the office into the shops

As technology advances more and more industrial shops are bringing that technology onto the shop floor. This helps streamline production along with minimizing downtime on projects.
