Mining

The Forklift Operator

On my recent assignment I had the opportunity to photograph all sorts of Industrial Mining operations including this forklift operator.   I wanted to focus on the person and not necesarily on the forklift where as by zooming out to get the whole vehicle you would lose sight of who was operating it.

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.
