As an Ontario mining photographer, I feel privileged to play a crucial role in showcasing the mining industry’s essence of battery electric vehicles. My photography not only celebrates the industry’s achievements but also promotes its vital contributions to society and the economy. Proud to be an Ontario mining photographer, telling the tale of an industry that powers progress and leaves a lasting impact.

Another one of my favorite underground images to capture . Sitting in the vehicle. There is always opportunity to capture/create this image as it presents itself multiple times throughout a shift. Sometimes I get lucky with the lighting, sometimes I create my own luck lol.

We had a great time celebrating MacLean Engineering’s production milestone at Agnico Eagle’s Goldex site featuring MacLeans 500th Bolter. It has been a privilege to create images throughout the years for this company and the friendships we have made throughout the MacLeans Team is invaluable. It was great to see familiar faces again as well as meet some new ones. Thanks to Karly Szabadkai, Viviane Baribeau, CRHA, John Chomyshyn, Tony Caron, Stephen Denomme and everyone else, it was awesome to see you all. A big thanks again to Stuart Lister for taking a chance on me years ago to provide photography for this leading company and thanks again for everything you have done through the years, it’s very much appreciated.

Brent, my assistant, moved onto bigger and better things out West and I am truly happy for him and his decision. We had a great run.
Please welcome McKean to the “picture”, pun intended. McKean has assisted me in the past with studio work, we get a long great and I have known him his whole life. He is also my Nephew. Keep it in the family I say. 🙂 McKean is familiar with the work as he has worked the past few years stitching vent tubes for the mining industry. We managed to get his boots dirty with a quick underground shoot and of course we had to commemorate the end of the shoot with a selfie.
Open pit morning. The sun was starting to break through the morning clouds as the wind pushed them across the site. After a few minutes of watching the trucks come and go the sun broke through again just in time for me to capture it.
Last month I had the great opportunity to photograph a series of images for RockMass Technologies featuring their Axis Mapper V2. You can view more info and images with the V2 at www.rockmasstech.com Thanks again to Shelby Yee, Don Toporowski and James Smith for the opportunity.
Looking at the Automated Induction Hardening Scanner at Salto Heat Treating , I was a bit puzzled on how to capture the heat treating process within an image. Shooting through the viewable window was the most obvious scenario but I knew once the process started that window would get steamed and blurred as well as reflect any outside light sources. Photographing through windows can be a bit tricky.
It’s good to take a step back for a minute or too and ask yourself “How do I photograph this differently than the obvious?”
After “scanning” the scanner from top to bottom I found a camera angle that provided a different view than the obvious. I safely mounted the camera above Induction Heater with a wide angle lens to capture the action below.
