Mmmmm Sudbury Pizza | Sudbury Photographer

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

I found myself at diGusto Yesterday with my buddy Franco where we for 2 straight hours photographed AND ate some of the delicious menu items diGusto has to offer, like the below PIZZA.  Don’t ask me what the proper name for this pie is as I tend to black out when I am stuffing my face.  Let’s just call it the “Mmph Pie”.



The Sudbury Photographer

I recently had a discussion with a friend of mine (who’s company also used my photography services) about the photos I create for my clients in regards to return on investment.  I was pleased to know that the company  was happy with the images, but more importantly they are using the images in a variety of media to market their company.    With the amount of usage the images are getting the ROI far exceeds the initial cost of the photoshoot.

When your company, product, service or employees get featured in industry magazines, online articles or corporate presentations why would you send  low quality images to accompany the article?  Don’t you want to show the best your company has to offer?  Pictures may not say a thousand word but they do give your clients that first impression.   One professional photography shoot can yield enough high impact images to cover your marketing materials for up to two years.  Pennies when you think about the long term gains you can get by standing out from your competition.  Take the below example for instance, same product, different quality.

If your company is interested in hiring  me, James Hodgins Professional Mining Industrial Photographer of Sudbury, Ontario, please contact me to discuss the details of your marketing requirements.

Here is a recent image of the new Atlas Copco EMT50 (Electric Mine Truck) that is part of their new Green Line of products. The next round of photography will hopefully be underground to view this machine at it’s best.

Going Down Under

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Heading underground again tomorrow (and looking forward to it).  Should be some interesting photos including the awesome Kiruna Electric Trolly.  I somehow have to capture this huge beast while it’s moving so we do not slow down production.  I will keep you posted on my success rate. 🙂

Here is an image from my last adventure underground.


It’s Amazing What Coffee Can Do.

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Whenever I am shooting in a new City, Town, Village orTrailer Park, the first thing I do is scope out a place to get my morning coffee (when I was in my twenties, it was the Beer Store).  While I was in  Sioux Lookout on a commercial shoot, the pickings were rather slim as there are really on 2 places you could go to.  One was a Robin’s Donuts and the other was a Small Coffee Shop called “Roy Lane”.  First impressions are big in my books and I will admit Roy Lane looked sooooooooooo inviting.  Tables and chairs outside with people enjoying their beverages, clean store front complete with flowers, and an overall feeling of “come in, you know you want to.”  Robins Donuts? Not so much.

So the first day of shooting I heading over to Roy Lane for my first cup of RL coffee.  The staff was friendly, quick and polite  with smiles and let me not forget that the coffee was gooood.  I know I started out my day with the first right decision.  The second day I was greeted with the same staff and smiles but this time was also offered a conversation.  Sylvie asked “Ok, you can come in here once and get your coffee, but the second time you have talk.  Are you new here?  Working?  Just passing through?”   

We quickly discussed my reasons, background, length of stay and oh yes, the Fire Fighters Calendar  (which I photographed) that they had behind the counter that was obviously opened and closed many many many times.  That pretty well struck up the conversation with everyone in the shop, including owner/operator Nancy Roy.  What a delight it was meeting her.  I haven’t met too many people that will invite you out for supper (wings and beer) to hang out with them and their staff after only meeting them for 5 minutes, but that is what Roy Lane is all about.  Friendly Service & Friendly Staff.  We all hung out that night swapping stories about Sioux and Sudbury, photography, coffeee, the history of Roy Lane, family and friends.  Honestly, it was the highlight of my whole trip and spruced up an otherwise mundane commercial shoot.  I would like personally thank Nancy and the staff at Roy Lane coffee for creating the establishment you have worked so hard to obtain.  You are defiantly one for the books.

If you are ever in the area of Sioux Lookout, be sure to stop by

To go the extra mile, I received this in the mail from Nancy. 🙂   A women after my own heart.
