Everything on the mine site has a strong sense of cohesion. Above ground or below each area works together to complete the overall mining process. With the Summer months coming I am looking forward to getting back outdoors (above ground) on sites to capture more of the above ground process. So far the Summer is looking Grand.
Even though I parked it for a few minutes to make this capture you still want the feel of movement within the image. This is achieved by choosing the right location to utilize the angle as well as the lighting.

After driving around in the Relay from www.millertechnology.com this looked like a great spot to capture a few more images before we finished for the day . #miningphotog #relay #millertechnology
Images I created for Vale Canada LTD have been showcased throughout their 2018/2019 Integrated Community Report.
The Front/Back images were photographed at Totten Mine in the Summer month of July. In addition a feedback card was mailed out to the community which I just received in the post.
I rarely get to capture images of surveyors underground so it was a pleasure to job shadow Kayla and photograph while she was working.

Just like the mining industrial industry I am constantly learning and testing new technology within my business. It could be monitoring a content post (just like this one) to see if it gets a higher reach to prospective clients or it could be a new app to increase post production efficiency. You should be constantly trying new things within your environment to see if it can be improved by any marginal percentage.
I have a saying “It’s not that I am smart, I just try things until I get it right.”
You learn from failures as well as success but only if you try new things.
I say that a lot, “take pride & strive”. What I mean by this is always take pride in what you are doing/creating professionally and strive to be the best you can be. I bring this attitude to every job I do, always trying to create the best I can with what I have to work with. It doesn’t matter what job you do, you can always be the best it if you choose. You can dig ditches for a living and I know there is someone that is an “expert” at digging ditches. Someone that takes pride in their job and has the process streamlined so that they are the most efficient, most productive ditch diggers in the World. When you take pride in your work and you strive to be the best at it you will be known for that work ethic as well as the quality of your product you are delivering. You can tell the difference between people that are just working for the paycheck and those that take pride and love what they do and for the most part the latter seem much happier with their jobs/careers/life. Will there be good days and bad days? Of course, but even when you have a bad at work or you feel that you could have done better those that know your professionalism will look at your overall track record in the industry.
Everyone of us can take a step back and ask ourselves “what can I do to be the best at this?” Sometimes the first step is asking this very question.
Browsing the www.epiroc.com website I came across a few information brochures that featured my images on the covers. Epiroc has some amazing photographers creating their content so it’s an honor to have my images showcased in their marketing materials.
It takes a select few images to showcase quality on a website. We sometimes laugh while on location about how long it takes to setup lighting for a specific scenario but the actual “capture” of the scenario takes a minute or two. I sound like a broken record preaching about having high impact images to showcase your company and product as well as solidifying your branding in your industry.
I came across an image I created for www.epiroc.com that is now featured on their global website. It never get’s old seeing your clients showcase their work using your work.
