Exploration Drilling | Mine Photographer

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 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!

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.

Inside The ROD MILL – Mine Photographer

It's not everyday you get to see the inside of a Rod Mill, so I quickly captured this image while I was passing through.  The available light was just enough to give me the dramatic effect I wanted while still illuminating the inside details.
