Graders are the silent sculptors of the landscape. These mighty machines, equipped with a blade, precisely level and contour the earth, preparing the terrain for the next phase of operations. They ensure efficiency and safety, turning rugged landscapes into workable surfaces.

Faces of Mining
Operating these giants demands skill, precision, and nerves of steel. The pride in commanding such power is unmatched. It’s not just a job; it’s a symphony of expertise and passion, where every movement echoes the dedication to excellence.

My favorite part of the job…………creating portraits and telling stories.
Another portrait I created while in Alaska at the Donlin Gold LLC site with my PENDA Productions Inc. Team. Project Manager and geologist Michelle. I still chuckle to myself thinking back to this day as minutes after we were introduced we started to unload all our gear and she quickly grabbed one of my largest (and heaviest) cases and walked away with it like it was full of air. Later, after I was done photographing the portraits we hopped in her side by side (pictured here) and headed out into the tundra to capture some other employees in the field not far from site. When we arrived out our destination and me looking around noticing there was nothing here but trees, she nodded in front of us saying “we still need to walk a few hundred meters”. I immediately thought of all my gear I had on me and without missing a beat Michelle says, with a humorous smirk “would you like me to carry your gear for you?”. If I was drinking something at that moment I probably would have snorted it out of my nose lol 🤣. Of course I took her up on the offer and we trudged into the greenery. I’ll post those images at a later date. I’m still talking about this PENDA Adventure, lots of great people, scenery and of course photography.
If your not already following PENDA Productions Inc. please do so and be informed of other upcoming PENDA Adventures.

I created a lot of great images during this shoot at Epiroc but this was one of my favorites from that day.

Early morning sunrise can yield those warm tones that set the day off in a positive direction. I was lying on the cold ground waiting for this truck to come up out of the pit thinking about the capture, the lighting, post editing……..who am I kidding, I was thinking about hot coffee lol.

Here is an image I captured while at the Norcat Mining Transformed event last year. Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. Using technology like VR and AI glasses our mining technology is changing the way we present and receive information while on the job.

Open pit, underground, in the shops, warehouses and in the field, the faces of mining span across so many different jobs, positions and environments.
