It’s always great to see your images being used by the International companies you photograph for. Sometimes it’s a few weeks, sometimes it’s over a year before they make their presence known and when you get the call back from the company requesting your services again you know it was a job well done.
Sometimes all the elements of a great photograph show up without being invited. This is what I call a pleasant surprise in the mining industrial sectors and when it happens I take full advantage of it.
I do enjoy photographing underground any chance I can get but I am looking forward to working with a few new clients this Summer in some unique locations. Each location brings it’s own challenges whether it’s lighting, accessibility, or even the subject I am shooting, but that is all part of the job. As a professional it’s not about “rolling with the punches” but rather “been there done that” which only comes with experience.
I still remember how amazed I was at just how small things can look in the distance. It wasn’t until I was standing beside this beast (and within it) just how big it actually was. Of course, I know that this Dragline is small in comparison to other mining machines around the world, but it’s still a beast in my books.
One of my favorite mining equipment to photograph, at least until I get to some sites that have bigger and more badass looking machines to peak my photography interest. I do have a few on my bucket list.

Today I goofed around in the studio with my good friend Cindy. Cindy has taken the body building industry by storm and she brought wayyyyy to many trophies to fit into one image so we picked one that would “stand out” LOL. She has numerous awards that I can’t even keep track of and on top of that she is an integral part of the Sudbury Firefighters Calendar, a loving Wife and a mother of two. Oh, and she is also celebrating her “forty… 37th” Birthday Today. Happy Bday Cin!
