I tend to get distracted while doing the most mundane task like digging an image out of my archives. I usually spend a copious amount of time looking through my other images of past clients that I have long forgotten about. Like the image below that I created for Pioneer Construction in 2012. So as I am looking for an image for one client, I tend to get distracted by my other clients images and time tends to spiral out of control. What I do like about this situation is that I get to see which images can stand the test of time and still be used today.
Yesterday I found myself at The Wood Working Studio in Sudbury Ontario after meeting owner/operator Tyler Depatie at a trade show a couple of weeks earlier. After discussing each others trades, trials and tribulations (say that 5 times fast) I knew I had to see what his Studio looked like and and take a closer look at some of the creations he manufactures. I was blown away with his craftsmanship, organizational skills and all around layout of his Wood Working Studio and not to mention the different types of wood he kept pulling out of every corner of his studio. Wood from different Countries, wood that I will probably never have seen in my lifetime, wood that feels heavier than some metal, and wood with grain patterns so unique you think it wasn’t real. Take the time and visit The Woodworking Studio’s Facebook Page and Website not only to see some of his creations but also to emphasize the power of social media marketing and networking, something else we discussed throughout my visit.
Thanks again Tyler for giving me the tour, some education, inspiration and the chance to quickly photograph you.
At the request from one of my clients I had to go back into the 2012 archives and retrieve a few images so I thought I would post one of them. This was from a Hydro One Photoshoot that featured one of their employees in their in house magazine. Location was Manitoulin Island (Outside of Sudbury Ontario) near Bay Of Finn.

Here is another chance I had to photograph an industrial worker that has never had his portrait created while working. I hope he enjoys the photo as much as I had creating it.
While I was photographing out of the Country I had the opportunity to capture some creative portraits of miners, industrial workers and tradesmen/women. Some of them have NEVER had their portrait taken…………ever. They were all smiles when I put them in front of the camera just like this fellow below. His smile was from ear to ear when I asked if he would like a portrait in front of the truck he works on. He told me it was up to him to keep this truck running. He was proud.

“There are just some things you shouldn’t use your Smartphone for! Image is vitally important and therefore any company photo’s & industrial portfolio should depict that “splash” of quality only a professional can capture.
While on location I try to photograph all aspects of the operations including people, facilities, processes and products. These images are then used for the clients Annual Reports, Website, Investor Fact Sheets, Blog Posts, Trade show Materials and Presentations.
Recently I posted some “behind the camera” images taken of my while on my shoot for Dumas Mining. Here is the finished image I was creating of this underground scoop.
