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.

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.

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.

Another one of my favorite underground images to capture . Sitting in the vehicle. There is always opportunity to capture/create this image as it presents itself multiple times throughout a shift. Sometimes I get lucky with the lighting, sometimes I create my own luck lol.

This image is simple enough to capture but it does take some finessing to get the lighting right, especially when you are using the cap lamps as a main light source. Direction and intensity of the cap lamps have to be tweaked to achieve the correct exposure while maintaining the realistic look of the underground environment. It’s even more difficult when they are chatting and moving while discussing the job at hand but watching the interaction for a few minutes, you can foresee the moment you want to capture.
