Sudbury Aggregates From The Air

As I was airborn last week for some aerial photography I came across a few local aggregate sites that I though had some interesting layouts.  The aggregate process is very complex and somewhat of a science when it comes to efficient production.  Sites like these have streamlined this process to achieve maximum effeciencey in the shortest amount of time.

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.

Professional Company Portraits

Part of the mining industrial industry is not all about the machines and equipment, but also about the executives and staff that are behind the success of the company.  Having a professional headshot of your companie's leading individuals for your website and marketing materials is a no brainer.  You take pride in your company, products and services so why not showcase the people that make it happen.  Corporate portraits like the one below can easily be done in the studio or on location but you are best to leave it up to a professional photographer that knows and understands lighting to make your portrait something you will want use.
