Throw back with x-Glo North America Inc. photographing, learning and installing the x-Glo Led strip lighting system. I can always tell when x-Glo lighting is installed, as a photographer the more light underground the better lol.

Faces Of Mining
I specifically placed him in the arch of his Hitachi Excavator to frame the portrait. I always try to find frames within the working environment.
Manipulating the shutter speed for a longer exposure of 2.5 seconds aloud me to capture the multitudes of colors from the vehicle lights. By capturing it this way, it brings more impact to an image that is seen quite often on site (discussing safety & procedures). It makes it memorable without losing the purpose of the image. That is the goal for every image!

I had an AMAZING time last night creating some new images for Equipment North Inc. with Warren Cayen and Gates Pothier. There is nothing more gratifying than when a shooting plan comes together and is executed flawlessly.

My mining industry career started with photographing exploration and drilling so to get back on site and above ground was familiar territory for me. It’s a faster paced scenario for photography with challenges like weather, timing and “where to stand” but in the end these challenges add to the creation process and end product.

Locking in your shock absorbing lanyard before the inspection.
I added a vignette to this image to guide your eyes to the story. Lights, faces, safety gloves, lanyard hook.

George Carlin said it best and I have repeated this many times over the last 20 years. “Hard work is working at a job you hate.”
Your hard work pays off at the end of the day when you are proud of the work you do. We will spend approximately 1/3 of our lifetime working and it could seem a lot longer if you don’t enjoy the journey.
Enjoy your week.
Recently photographed the Komatsu WX07 within the underground for Komatsu’s hard rock mining division. Among the few dozen images I created which included the overall unit, components and special features, having the unit moving material is always the perfect stand alone capture.
