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.



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.

Last week I had a very successful shoot with the Dumas staff at Hoyle Pond Mine in Timmins Ontario. I want to use this post to personally thank them all again for their professionalism and safety awareness while I was on site. It was also a pleasure to finally meet Angela (pictured below) who orchestrated the shoot and also helped as my assistant when I needed one.

Sudbury Mining & Bees

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Recently I was called to action to photograph a different subject matter I normally don’t see on a mine site.  Vale has introduced a few new Bee colonies to help pollinate the already present wildflowers and  push forward the re-greening process on the site.   Learn more  by watching the CTV News Coverage

Over 500,000 bees occupy the 2 hives on site.

Haul Truck Ontario

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

I seem to make it a habit to grab a few shots of haul trucks while in the passenger seat while driving around the mine site. I find it gives you a very realistic view of the truck in action.
