It’s Mining Marketing Time For 2016 | Sudbury Mining Industrial Photographer

Now that 2016 is in full swing in the mining industrial sectors it’s time to start thinking about this years marketing materials and online portfolio.  Trade show season is only a few months away and you don’t want to leave it until the last minute so you are scrambling for images for your presentations, trade show booths, investor reports and online updates.  A full day shoot can yield high quality “wow factor” images that can be used throughout the year without repeating the use of images.  I will work directly with your creative marketing team to formulate a shoot schedule and scenario list that would work best for your company.

The Bigger Bucket | Mining Photographer

Depending on the environment you see it in, the bucket from a dragline can look pretty small when you compare it to the beast it’s attached to, but when you get up close and personal with it (like doing repairs) you quickly realize it’s a giant among men.

Artistic Or Profitable

In the Mining/Industrial fields there is a fine line between an artistic and profitable image that companies use.  With image editing software at everyone’s fingertips I am noticing a lot of images that are “over processed” in post editing.  Anyone can do it, usually it’s a click of a button in any editing software or phone app.  Now I am not saying this is a bad thing, heck I have some images in my portfolio that some consider over processed (and I agree) but these images were used for a specific purpose and 90% of the time are used for my own personal motives.

What I am seeing though is entire websites with over processed, painterly, HDR images.  These might look great and I know they look amazing on your walls as an “art piece”  but it does draw away from what the image actually represents which should be an accurate depiction of your products, staff, processes and facilities when placed in your website galleries and marketing material.  Stick with the basics of good lighting, exposures and subject matter and you can’t go wrong.

My Mining Best of 2015

Cleaning my archives out for 2014 I thought I would post my favorite photo I posted from each month.  I had a great year re-connecting with past clients and starting some strong business relationships with new clients.


I created this photo specifically for this caption.  Taken in Kirkland Lake Ontario

Mining The Green Gardens

The other side of the mining/industrial sectors I like to photograph is the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) and Land Reclamation Projects.  This is a side that most people do not think exists but I have photographed these projects for all of my major clients.

Totten Mine Sunrise | Sudbury Mining Photographer

As my friend and I were on our way to an early morning hunt today we had to stop and back up so I could capture this sunrise photo of Totten Mine  with my cellphone (yes, I don’t bring my camera when I hunt).

Mining Life Magazine

Just received the latest edition of Mining Life & Exploration News Magazine, another industry magazine that takes pride in the images they put on the cover (yes, that was a shameless plug).
