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”.
Like with any “business” big or small your prospective clients HAVE TO SEE YOU. If they do not know you exist then how can they possibly purchase your product, service or technique? If you are a business owner and you are reading this blog post but don’t have your own website (with blog), Facebook page, Twitter or Linkedin account (to name a small few) then eventually you are going to walk the way of the dinosaurs. You will fade………..extinct. The younger generation are coming into positions of buying, managing and marketing and how do you think they find, research and review their prospective purchases? Social media of all levels. I deal with many types of business’s and have seen this many times where the “old school” business is running great but as time passes by their visual presence stays the same and eventually becomes outdated.
Maclean Engineering seems to be embracing social media and within the last year I have seen many changes to the companies online presence. Now, I am biased because they do use a lot of the images I created for them but they are USING them on many different platforms from hardcopy marketing to social media. Just a few days of shooting in different locations and they now have an arsenal of updated visually stimulating images of their products with their people that they can use for the next year or so posting daily.
They get it. Are you?

Friday I was underground with Atlas Copco having an upclose look at the new Mine Runner Unit. This unit is a one stop shop for drill accessories delivered right to your door……..or level.

While I was underground photographing for Maclean Engineering I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to photograph Roger Dunning who has been in the industry for over 20+ years. For anyone who has been underground, you know how it feels when you are over 9000 ft underground…… Humid, hot, sweaty.

Here is an image I created today for the Cambrian College Fire Services department. Sometime this summer we will be heading outdoors to get some live fire images, but today (as it was cold) we settled for indoors. I lit this image with 4 lights and one flash using a collapsed umbrella and 30 inch softbox. This shoot gave me some great ideas for upcoming images for this years Sudbury Firefighters Calendar. I look forward creating more images for this Cambrian Department.

Received this comment this morning in regards to my last blog post.
“You are amazing…thanks so much for capturing a moment that will last forever. Princess Chloe is angry and crying under the table because there is no picture of her…I told her that soon we will go back and she will be able to see all her pictures too. She said the green sucker was great!”

Well, there is one thing that I can’t stand and that is a crying princess. So just for you my little princess….voila!
Here is another image from the “Matt Pack” Session. This was nearing the end, after they found the bag of wigs and accessories. There are more and I will post them when we get back to work (still kinda on holidays). Unlike other “HodgyPoP” sessions, this image was shot with this background and lighting. She was not cutout in PS and pasted into the frame. Lighting is my usual 5 light setup.
