Another great example of placing negative space in an image for copy (text). We created a series of images for MacLean’s IQ Series Product LineSeen in the September Issue of www.im-mining.com magazine.www.macleanengineering.com.
There is a difference.
I see it immediately. The “cut it out and paste it” scenario. It’s a quick inexpensive way to showcase a product and some are really good, others? Well, not so much lol. You can tell when some thought has been put into the final image. The cut-out is precise, the scale matches the surroundings and the rendition gives a good representation of what the equipment will look like in it’s natural environment.
I may be biased, but nothing beats the real thing in it’s real environment. #miningphotog.
I created a few dozen “on the fly” individual portraits while I was visiting sites for SSR Mining with www.pendaproductions.com. Just a few minutes to quickly coordinate a spot, calculate the composition / lighting and record a few captures. In the past I used to joke that the setup time took the longest and the actual picture taking lasted a fraction of a second. Five minutes of work for a memorable portrait for both the client and employee. These are the most rewarding images I create within the mining industry.

The system allows the operation of twin raises at the same time. Thanks to Tony Linton for the opportunity to photograph this impressive innovation.

How do you create a 15-hectare nursery packed with row upon row of shrubs, trees, plants grasses and more? Easy, one pot at a time.
I walked Eldorado Gold’s nursery (located just outside of Olympiada Greece) from end to end with 30+ degree temps and what felt like 100% humidity. The smells of the planted inhabitants would breeze across my nose in the wind as I would stare at the vast size of the area. By far this was the biggest nursery I have ever seen or photographed.
I created a few images of Dr. Andreas Kumar at Health Sciences North in Sudbury recently.
Shared from Health Sciences North Foundation
HSN Cardiologist Dr. Andreas Kumar, along with his team, established the cardiac MRI service at HSN – an advanced new method for diagnosing heart disease.
Considered the gold standard for diagnosing many forms of heart disease, a cardiac MRI offers detailed images of the structure and function of the heart and is a non-invasive procedure that facilitates the analysis of the heart tissue. “Cardiac MRI means a more accurate diagnosis for patients, and therefore better treatment,” says Dr. Kumar. He calls the service “the gold standard for assessing heart function.”

I was looking for an image to try some new graphic design work applications I have been thinking about for the past few months. A change in the application of how my mining images could be used in a companies marketing materials have me youtubing videos on photoshop techniques and such, techniques that I used to know years ago when I ran my full time wedding/portrait studio.
Some mining images are what they are. There is nothing special about them but the photographer has seen a “future” of that image that is not present at the time of capture. I look through the viewfinder with the same eye and mindset I had years ago when I was photographing images and thinking about photography competitions like WPPI And PPOC. The fundamentals of photography ingrained in my brain like rule of thirds, leading lines, storytelling and dramatic effect. You can “see” the potential within an image even though it’s not there visually, but you captured it knowing that all the elements are present and you just have to fine tune those individual elements to create the balance you initially envisioned.
Every once in awhile I will look through my image archives for a specific image and an unrelated image will strike the hotplate of imagination in my brain and I will lose myself within the editing process once again.
You can find beauty in all things.
