As Fall Approaches | Mining Industrial Photography

We are now in September and the Summer months are behind us. As Fall approaches companies should start thinking about their Winter marketing materials and what images they will be using to showcase their products & services.  The white stuff covering the ground marks the end to warm Summer looking images so look ahead as there is still time to create unique images for your next Season of marketing materials.

Kal Tire Mining | Mining Industrial Photographer

Flipping through a recent industry magazine and came across one of my images  in use from my Kal Tire Shoot a few months ago.  With this one shoot they can now create multiple unique ads for the next 1 to 2 years.

Wide Load Coming Through! | Sudbury Industrial Photography

After the converter was fabricated and moved from Anmar the 10o+  ton titan  made it’s  journey to the Vale Smelter.  Only a few Kilometers up the highway the 3hr trip was slow moving as  power lines needed to be raised and traffic directed to ensure a safe journey.

Underground Warning System | Sudbury Mining Company

I think ALL mine sites should have this system to ensure the added safety of all Mine Personnel. 

The J.A.W.S. 2 system (Jannatec Advanced Warning System) consists of a series of radio frequency transceivers attached to all underground vehicles, personnel and fixed hazards.  Mine personnel will receive a clearly visible visual warning when in the vicinity of a moving vehicle or fixed hazard. In the same way, pedestrians are quickly detected by the operators of oncoming vehicles. JAWS 2 is able to tell the operator whether he is approaching a single worker, or a group of workers.

Check out Jannatec’s other products by visiting their website at

A Little Quality Can Go A Long Way | Mining Photographer

When your company, product, service or employees get featured in industry magazines, online articles or corporate presentations why would you send  low quality images to accompany the article?  Don’t you want to show the best your company has to offer?  Pictures may not say a thousand word but they do give your clients that first impression.   One professional photography shoot can yield enough high impact images to cover your marketing materials for up to two years.  Pennies when you think about the long term gains you can get by standing out from your competition.  Take the below example for instance, same product, different quality.

Everything Changes At Night | Industrial Photographer

Most of my job sites are dull, grey, dirty and mundane but that all changes when the sun goes down and the lights click on.  The entire environment takes on a whole new look and sometimes it can be beautiful………… least to a mining industrial photographer.

Underground With Nordex | Mining Photographer Sudbury

Having the word “Explosives” in your business name makes me a bit envious.  Who wouldn’t want to say “Ya, I work with explosives” or “I blow things up.”? I enjoyed learning the process of what goes into making explosives for the mining industry.  I got a true “How It’s Made” day with Nordex Explosives.

James Hodgins visited Kirkland lake just North of Sudbury Ontario to photograph images for Nordex Explosives marketing materials & social media content.


Farewell Sharp Dressed Man

Sad news in the mining/industrial industry with the loss of Bob Lipic.  (President of MTI). I had the pleasure of meeting him once while I photographed for MTI.  First impressions are everything and his impression left me thinking “What a great guy.” He was very courteous, talkative and helpful.  He wanted to know all about my photography asking questions about my lighting and equipment. He even commented on my jacket I was wearing as it  had my logo on it.  I remember walking away from that shoot happier than when I went into it (and I am normally a VERY happy guy).  I wished I got to photograph more of him in the industry.  RIP Bob.
