So this is something that I am pretty stoked about. Although I have had my images on the cover of other various magazines, this is the first cover for a Mining/Industrial Magazine, so I thought I would post a shameless brag about it. I have another shoot scheduled for the cover of another Industrial Magazine this month and last month I covered a story that will be featured in a Hydro One Magazine so I am pretty excited about these publication. You can pick up your copy of Canadian Mining Magazine at the Las Vegas Mine Expo 2012 this Month.
