Over the years I have learned to appreciate different aspects of my mining photography. At first I was intrigued by the whole process along with the machines, environment and the challenges they both produced while trying to photograph them. Now I look back at some of those first images I created and they take on much different meaning to me. In fact, they have more “meaning”. Something as simple as a quick snapshot I captured in the fleeting moment, although not technically good, has a different story now than at the time of capture. The longer and harder I work at my photography business, the more I fall in love with it which pushes me to produce not only storytelling images, but a product and experience my clients will remember me by. What is my end goal? I have thought long and hard about it. I would like my mining photography to be an influencer in the industry, for it to bring progress and change when used and for it to be remembered and archived long after I am gone.
