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.

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.
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.

The “Night” Shift making their way in and out of the pit in 3 minutes.

Another favorite series of images I love to create is operations at night as the lighting unfolds after dusk.

Another forgotten image I created years ago in an open pit mine site. I watched this Caterpillar skid loader zooming around here and there with precision so when he stopped and got out to check something I took the opportunity to capture a few images.
It takes a lot of man power and heavy equipment to successfully move dirt from one area to another. Like an assembly line these machines work around the clock to strip material down to the pay dirt and then efficiently get that material to the plant.
“I see you there walking around my personal space, chasing the equipment, people and light as it fades into my horizon. Many have come before you, many have succeeded in capturing my good side but many have also failed. Show me respect and walk safely within my domain and I will reward you with captured glimpses that will stay true to the end of time.” ~ The Open Pit
When it comes to using images for marketing materials just any o’l image wont do. There needs to be some balance between the image and the copy. Negative space is required to add text and graphics and if the composition of the image doesn’t work then the marketing material will not reach it’s full potential.
Having an end goal when creating images is always in my mind when I am looking through my viewfinder and creating the space needed within the frame is just one of many goals for each image.
