IN THE MAIL THIS WEEK
It’s one of the first questions I get asked: “What would they need photography for?” (When I tell people what I do for a living.) Well, for one instance would be a companies “In House” trade magazine like Atlas Copco’s “Mining & Construction” magazine. Sure they could add snapshots thatemployees have taken with their cellphones but why make a company and product look sup-par? In house magazines are a great way to promote the company, products and the people who create them. Sometimes the images I create are not used for a year or two later when the information is relevant to the company. Like I say, it’s always better to have a photo archive on hand so you are not scrambling to provide High Quality Images at the last minute.

Well it’s now 2017 and the thought of Christmas & New Years is quickly fading into our memories. 2016 was a productive year with new clients coming on board as well as updating existing clients photo archive. Trade show season is just a few months away and I imagine some companies will be scrambling to get their booths and marketing materials organized in time. PDAC (http://www.pdac.ca/convention) Prospectors And Developers Association of Canada is only 2 months away.
I would be happy to assist any of you if you require new images for your PDAC booth and marketing materials .
Here is a quick sneak peak at one of the images I created this Wednesday with the Joy Global 4LD at the Norcat Facility in Onaping. I enjoy photographing equipment when it comes straight off the productive line as it’s still fairly clean and shiny with just a hint of wear and tear from the drive in.
Contact me if your company deserves better images to showcase your products, services, people or equipment. High impact images increase marketing potential in your website, brochure and trade magazines.
Earlier this year I was asked by Dovetail Communications if I could supply them with images to be featured throughout their next edition of the Camese Compendium Of Canadian Mining Suppliers 2017 which arrived in my mail yesterday. Camese is a trade association made up of Canadian companies & suppliers of the mining industrial industry. I wish to thank all involved at Dovetail and Camese for choosing Mining Industrial Photographer @miningphoto for the cover and inlaying images.

On my way back from a shoot last week I pulled over on the highway to take a quick photograph of this Winter Scene. It was a frosty morning with a good blanket of snow on the ground and I drive past this area all the time, but with the snow covering the ground the whole area took on a different look which made me want to capture it.
As the seasons change here in Ontario so does the apparel I wear on the job site. Recently I started wearing my Green Custom High Visibility Vest manufactured by Ago Industries. I photographed their facility and processes a few years ago and as a thank you they made me this High Visibility Vest to wear on my shoots. I have had it tucked away as I tend to wear a 1 piece overall but now that the cold weather is hear and I am layering up, this vest is perfect to still keep me visible.
