Graders are the silent sculptors of the landscape. These mighty machines, equipped with a blade, precisely level and contour the earth, preparing the terrain for the next phase of operations. They ensure efficiency and safety, turning rugged landscapes into workable surfaces.

Sometimes in cramped spaces you have to get a little creative with illuminating the subjects. A steady hand and longer exposure sometimes works but having a “backpocket” light as I call it always helps. Small flashes, flashlights even my caplamp have been used in the creation process.
Capturing the night shift is a total 180 when it comes to the look and feel of an image. I love being outdoors at night at an active site where the only illumination is coming from the facilities and equipment. It’s a great opportunity to get creative with exposure and composition.
Meet our unsung heroes, the geologists! They are the scientific explorers who uncover the Earth’s riches and pave the way for successful mining operations. From analyzing rock formations to understanding mineral deposits, geologists play a crucial role in identifying valuable resources and ensuring sustainable mining practices. Throughout my travels in Ontario and across Canada I have photographed many Geologists in the field, always trying to change up the look and feel of the image according to the personality of the person I am photographing.

Early morning sunrise can yield those warm tones that set the day off in a positive direction. I was lying on the cold ground waiting for this truck to come up out of the pit thinking about the capture, the lighting, post editing……..who am I kidding, I was thinking about hot coffee lol.

Renate a Heavy Equipment Apprentice I recently photographed in the mechanics shop at the Lac des Iles Mine. When you chat with her, you can feel the passion and confidence she has for her job and the industry.
