While on a shoot today I came across this John Deere Excavator all alone with nobody to play with.
This Manitou MT 1044 series mining forklift was on site to position loads of up to 10 meters with a max load capacity of 3000kg.
Industrial Mine workers work high above the ground on the next phaze of this mine headframe.
You simply have to add your own lighting to bring out the details and have a proper exposure throughout the image, or you can wait until the right time of day using the sun as the main light source (which I did here). It's not easy to make things like this interesting but that is what I love about the challenges of Mine Photography.
A mining industrial worker uses the Stihl TS 420 Cutt Off Saw to trim down some concrete from a large block used to test the Tower Crane's shutt off sensor.
I few months ago I had the opportunity to photograph some heavy equipment with Pioneer Construction at one of their open pits. By itself this truck looks like a Tonka Toy in a sandbox, but as soon as you put a person in the frame to show some scale, you can see just how enourmous this Caterpillar Off Highway Truck is.
It was a pleasure working with this company and their employees as they all showcased the upmost professionalism and courtesy.
This blast hole drilling rig sits on the sidelines just outside the the job site waiting for it's moment to get into the action.
