This was Henry’s last shift in the warehouse at Musselwhite Mine in Northern Ontario. At the end of the day he was officially retired so I took a bit of time to create a quick portrait of him on the job.
Did you know that July 1st, 2016 is the deadline for required High Visibility Safety Apparel? That’s right, if you work in a mine after July you will be required (by law) to wear high visibility PPE. Why am I posting this on a photography site? Well, you should also consider all your marketing materials and photographs you use to showcase your company. They will no longer be relevant in the eyes of safety standard which could look poorly on your company. Time to update your photo library? I know someone who can help.

A lot of the times I don’t fit in the spaces I need to get the shot so I will “mount” my camera using cable, ducttape, clamps or even zipties and then remote trigger the camera as I did for the below image.

Just like Metso’s full page ad says in the latest issue of Mining Magazine “Downtime Is Costly”. The same can be said for your marketing materials when they finally hit that “downtime” stage where the impact just isn’t there anymore because the message is old, the layout is outdated, or heavens forbid the photography is amateur. Use the right tools for the right job, like effective content related images that apply to your business or company.

Even though we had a language barrier and it took a few extra minutes of hand gesturing to explain I wanted to create a portrait of him, the smile on his face after I showed him the image on the back of the camera needed no explanation.

While I was underground on Friday creating images for my client Dan here was my “escort” around the underground labyrinth. Here he was taking me all over the underworld watching me create images of other people that I figured he should have one of himself as well. As he was looking back in the truck, waiting for a scoop to pass, the whole “scenario” just clicked with me. The angle, the lighting, even the subject matter all fit together for a great story telling image. I knew that this was going to be the image I would create for him at the end of the day…………………and we did.
