Safety Is Not Just About Yourself | Mining Industrial Photographer James Hodgins

Safety is not just about yourself, but involves everyone and everything in your working environment.  Always take a moment to stop, look around and listen to what is immediately around you and inspect your surroundings top to bottom.   For one shoot I had to capture a few images from a tower overlooking the facility at night.  As I got to the top of the tower and was looking around I quickly noticed some movement at my feet.   Trying to be as stealthy as possible and not causing any more stress to the occupants of the balcony I quickly and silently descended back to the ground to locate another vantage point to shoot from.  Happily momma bird arrived back on scene shortly after I reached the bottom.  By then it was time to go for the night, but I did manage to  capture some images throughout the night and above (on the opposite tower).  No matter how big or small be safe for all.
