If you are flipping through the latest edition of Canadian Mining Journal you will come across more of my images that I have created for the Totten Mine Archives. Take the time to read the article “VALE’S VISION” by Russell Noble which highlights the key elements of the Totten Mine Project
Here are a few images used throughout the article. Click image to view Canadian Mining Journal Digital Edition
Totten Mine had it’s official grand opening this past Friday. I had the pleasure to photograph all the different stages of the project and I watched the progress every weekend as I headed to my cottage which takes me right past the site. Totten closed in 1972 a year before I was born and as a kid when we crested the hill and the old headframe came into view we knew we were almost at the lake.
Congratulations to everyone involved.
I was recently approached to photograph a steel company for some new promotional materials that are in the works. The images they have now were created over 10 years ago and are a bit “outdated” to say the least. If your company is constantly expanding it’s technology and processes your marketing materials should change with it.
Besides photographing and creating images underground, in the shops or out in the field I also get requests to photograph the corporate portraits for the companies as well. I try to encourage the company to get each of the portraits done at the same time to ensure that they have the same look and feel when displayed on their marketing materials. Over and over I see websites where the companies profiles are a mixture of places, backgrounds and even quality.
It’s always nice to see images I have created being put to good use. This is a past issue of CIM Magazine that features one of my images on the cover.
Be sure to try and attend the 2014 CIM Convention this May in Vancouver.
I really appreciate the professionalism and hard work you put into capturing images for our company. I have worked with photographers in the past and have been told by many people in the mining industry that they have never received the quality and quantity of images you provided us with. Even with extreme temperatures, scheduling surprises and VERY long days you were always working to make the most out of our time in Cuba and Alberta.
My senior management was thrilled with the results and very impressed with how quickly the images were returned and in such smart packaging!
I have no hesitation in recommending you to current and future contacts knowing you will make every effort to capture what the client wants and needs. “
