“Love the professional looks James gives photos! minimal staging, and only ever preforming tasks I would be expected too while regularly on the job, it’s more then a look for the camera, it’s about looking professional and qualified something I really appreciate to see in a world full of staged models with limited PPE advertising trades to young women!”
“James and his team were fantastic to work with. Beyond his evident skill with a camera, it is James’ ability to make his “models” feel comfortable and at ease that truly makes his work shine.
By taking the time to get to know his subjects, James is able to capture images that show a genuine, natural reflection of who the company is and what they are trying to accomplish. We gave James the challenge of working in a high-intensity, chaotic environment with drillers, core cutters, geologists, and technicians who had no experience with professional photography, but between his keen eye for storytelling, lighting, and framing and his talent with photoshop, we could not be happier with the way the images turned out.
Looking forward to working with you again in the future!“

His performance was outstanding, all our employees enjoyed working with him and the pictures we received were above and beyond expectations. Manroc is very excited to release the pictures on our new website and job postings.

“Hi James, Just wanted to send a quick thank you for the amazing job you did at our photo shoot. The attention to detail and images you captured are beyond our expectation!
We look forward to working with you again. James, writing a single sentence to capture our photo experience with you is as difficult as having to choose which images you provided us to use in in our promotional material!
It truly is as difficult to capture the right words to express the experience working with you.”
“We have used James for his mining photography skills on numerous occasions now for the past 5 years and every single time I am surprised by the quality of the product that he produces at the end of the specific project. He is a pleasure to deal with as a human being and on all fronts I highly recommend his services.”

“I recently had photoshoot with James for a new campaign that Vale is launching and I initially felt super nervous getting in front of the camera but after meeting with James he was very personable and reassuring, and he made it really easy to be photographed by him. I don’t normally like getting my picture taken under any circumstance but James truly made it effortless and comfortable. I would say my overall experience was excellent and I would highly recommend him.
“I highly recommend James for his work in the mining photography. He is highly professional and has super creative direction. I often give him a lot of creative flexibility to be able to work with the machine, how he feels the best way to showcase it and have always been happy with the results.”
“James has done some amazing work at our shop taking pictures of all our machinery here. We are very very pleased and we love the beautiful work. James thank you for everything you do for our industry, our industry needs someone like you to put live pictures out there to show our clients what it is we do. You made our pictures come to life.”

Manager of business development and sales
“James Hodgins did very professional work for the Madsen Gold Project Photography when we hired him back in the Fall. I always tell him I think they are worthy of a coffee table book on the interesting aspect of underground mining equipment they use and the people that do it, so we will gladly use him again for our projects.”
“When it comes to photography in the mining industry and the underground James is truly the industry professional of choice. probably in my opinion the #1 underground photographer in the world. Truly great to work with and an absolute treat to be part of the product and the social presence in the market now.”
