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.

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.

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

I captured this portrait of Brian the last time I was at the www.macleanengineering.com Collingwood Facility. Brian as been with the company for over 36 years, a milestone accomplishment nowadays. These are the portraits I love to create and showcase, the people behind the company, day to day always the professional.

Capturing the night shift is a total 180 when it comes to the look and feel of an image. I love being outdoors at night at an active site where the only illumination is coming from the facilities and equipment. It’s a great opportunity to get creative with exposure and composition.
While visiting the Donlin Gold LLC project site with my PENDA Productions Inc. team I managed to capture a portrait of lead geologist Catherine Kim. This, among other images I created was one of my most enjoyable PENDA Adventure to date. Looking forward to sharing more (in due time) and I can’t wait to get back to capture more.
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.
