Lil Big Rig – Cambrian College

Friday, August 28th, 2015

Awhile back I had the opportunity to photograph Cambrian College’s  Lil’ Big Rig here in Sudbury, so on a early cloudy morning we “trucked” it out to Dynamic Earth where I could throw my spin on creating a Bad Ass Image that this machine deserves.

Sudbury Anmar Mechanical

The second Clean AER (Clean Atmospheric Emissions Reduction Project) converter leaves it’s home from Anmar now that fabrication is done.  Weighing in over 100 tones this unit looks minute in the 130,000 square foot fabrication shop but when you get up close and personal the converter is anything but.  The Converter is easily maneuvered through the shop and out the access door awaiting it’s transport to  Vale’s smelter.

Sudbury Underground Warning System | Mining Photographer

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

I think ALL mine sites should have this system to ensure the added safety of all Mine Personnel. 

The J.A.W.S. 2 system (Jannatec Advanced Warning System) consists of a series of radio frequency transceivers attached to all underground vehicles, personnel and fixed hazards.  Mine personnel will receive a clearly visible visual warning when in the vicinity of a moving vehicle or fixed hazard. In the same way, pedestrians are quickly detected by the operators of oncoming vehicles. JAWS 2 is able to tell the operator whether he is approaching a single worker, or a group of workers.

Evening at the plant – Sudbury Ontario

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Most of my job sites are dull, grey, dirty and mundane but that all changes when the sun goes down and the lights click on.  The entire environment takes on a whole new look and sometimes it can be beautiful………… least to a mining industrial photographer.

Underground In Kirkland Lake | Sudbury Photographer

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

Having the word “Explosives” in your business name makes me a bit envious.  Who wouldn’t want to say “Ya, I work with explosives” or “I blow things up.”? I enjoyed learning the process of what goes into making explosives for the mining industry.  I got a true “How It’s Made” day with Nordex Explosives.

So last night I took “Arial” out for a quick zip in behind my neighborhood as the sun was quickly setting. Nothing fancy as I am still getting used to options that this unit has to offer.   I am looking forward to pushing the envelope with creating more stunning images for my clients.
