A rough Canadian Diamond is scanned and marked for cutting by a precision Diamond Planning Laser System. Once the diamond is mapped out it will then be cut to the mapping specifications and then ground down and polished to yield the highest quality for that diamond.
Now that 2016 is in full swing in the mining industrial sectors it’s time to start thinking about this years marketing materials and online portfolio. Trade show season is only a few months away and you don’t want to leave it until the last minute so you are scrambling for images for your presentations, trade show booths, investor reports and online updates. A full day shoot can yield high quality “wow factor” images that can be used throughout the year without repeating the use of images. I will work directly with your creative marketing team to formulate a shoot schedule and scenario list that would work best for your company.
James Hodgins from Sudbury Ontario is a professional Mining Industrial Commercial photographer with over 20 years experience.
A Sudbury Platinum Corp geologist carefully stacks core samples at the snow covered drill site. Snow and cold weather can be an inconvenience but Winter waits for no one in the mining industry.
Depending on the environment you see it in, the bucket from a dragline can look pretty small when you compare it to the beast it’s attached to, but when you get up close and personal with it (like doing repairs) you quickly realize it’s a giant among men.
In the Mining/Industrial fields there is a fine line between an artistic and profitable image that companies use. With image editing software at everyone’s fingertips I am noticing a lot of images that are “over processed” in post editing. Anyone can do it, usually it’s a click of a button in any editing software or phone app. Now I am not saying this is a bad thing, heck I have some images in my portfolio that some consider over processed (and I agree) but these images were used for a specific purpose and 90% of the time are used for my own personal motives.
What I am seeing though is entire websites with over processed, painterly, HDR images. These might look great and I know they look amazing on your walls as an “art piece” but it does draw away from what the image actually represents which should be an accurate depiction of your products, staff, processes and facilities when placed in your website galleries and marketing material. Stick with the basics of good lighting, exposures and subject matter and you can’t go wrong.

While I was photographing some time laps images this transport driver pulled up in front of me. I couldn’t resist creating a portrait of his rig for him.

Cleaning my archives out for 2014 I thought I would post my favorite photo I posted from each month. I had a great year re-connecting with past clients and starting some strong business relationships with new clients.
I created this photo specifically for this caption. Taken in Kirkland Lake Ontario
Thanks to all my past clients. Looking forward to this years operations.
It’s been a great year working with everyone and I have enjoyed the images I have created for you throughout the past year. Looking forward to working with new and existing clients throughout 2015.
I have been waiting to post this image I created last year and thought today would be the perfect time. Happy New Year Everyone. James
The other side of the mining/industrial sectors I like to photograph is the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) and Land Reclamation Projects. This is a side that most people do not think exists but I have photographed these projects for all of my major clients.
