Sudbury Mining Photographer

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

I know it’s the end of the year and photography is not high on the priority list in the Mining Industrial Industry right now so let me use this post to remind you of next month when things start kicking into high gear for the Spring season which is TRADE SHOW SEASON!!  Look at your booth, look at your marketing (handout) materials.  Is it time for an image upgrade?  1 shoot can yield enough custom images for your whole year of unique marketing materials. Make sure you have high quality impact images on hand  that you can send or use at any time.  Take a look at my “Showcase” page and see how other companies are utilizing their images for their marketing materials.

Underground Lighting | A Sudbury Photographer

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

Yesterday I was on location with Donald Bertrand of HALO CANADA to photograph the installation of Halo Led Lights (#halocanada) in the Norcat Facility here in Sudbury Ontario.  The LED lighting increases illumination which makes the working area more safe, reduces energy costs, increases worker moral and is easy to install.  I was very impressed with how much this product illuminated the area we were working in as you can see by the photos below.  For more information on this product please email my friend Donald Bertrand of Halo Canada at

From afar the teeth of the Dragline Excavator bucket can look pretty small but when you get right up next to it the size takes on a whole new meaning to “looks can be deceiving”.  So far this is the largest bucket I have photographed but I am sure I will get the chance to capture bigger things in the mining industry.

The rails are heavily used in the mining industry to transport materials across the mine site and the conductors that operate them say they might have the best job on the site.

Portrait Of The Professor

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Today I had the great privilege of photographing  Louis L’Allier PhD  Associate Professor, Classical Studios at Laurentian University.  Louis needed a photograph of himself to grace the next cover of  He also wanted something for himself to use as his own bio pic on the back of his published books and works.    Louis picked a great room attached to the L.U’s Library that provided some great ambient light along with some warm incandescent backlight.  I opted to mix the ambient with some Off Camera Flash to create an image where Louis would “pop” out of the frame, but still have the background compliment the rest of the image without being distracted.  I’m not sure which image the magazine will use for their cover, but the below image is one that Louis and Myself liked for his own use.  The book in the portrait is a  very old (hundreds of years) Greek Book that is part of the Greek History Louis Loves and teaches.


A Portrait Of Two Women.

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

Here is a photograph I took while presenting a live webinar for Photography Schoolhouse on how to “pose” a female.  Along with everything else “female” posing is just as hard to understand.  It takes practice and when done correctly, should look natural and comfortable. You would never know that these to beautiful ladies just met a few minutes before I setup this shot.


Holding Hands Just Got Better!

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Trying some different poses for babies lately and I’m really liking the “Keep It Simple Stupid” format.  We have never been big on props, basically because we don’t have the room to store them in our studio haha, that and the fact that we are not a Baby Specialty Studio (check out for the best Baby Portraits), but when our clients do bring us their loved ones, we go all out in trying to create those moody, eye catching images, especially in B&W.


Evening Fall Couples Portrait.

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

When Marissa came into our studio for her portrait consultation  last week she made the mistake of telling me that Sean wasn’t one for pictures.  Especially since the session was going to be held on his birthday.  Me being me, I sent her home with some “smiling” exercises that I jotted down on a piece of paper to give to Sean for practice until the session.  Of course, there was nothing on the paper, but boy I would have loved to seen his face as she explained it to him.  LOL.    We had the pleasure tonight to photograph Sean & Marissa along with their beautiful Husky “Willow” on their 75 acre lot West of Sudbury.  Fields, creeks, trails, this property had it all.  After getting the tour from Sean we quickly jumped right in to the portraits making sure we got Willows attention from the squirrel, wind, smells and everything outdoorsy.  As the sun was starting to set, we found some great spots with nice lighting and backgrounds.   Marissa & Sean, thanks again for having us out at your house.  You have a gorgeous property and we both enjoyed photographing the three of you.


Evening Portrait Of Mom & Daughter

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

We just finished photographing the ever happy Miss Emily where we took her downtown to do some urban grunge images in her Hip-Hop outfits.  We found graffiti walls, back alleys, rusted stairs and old fire escapes.  Emily was a bit shy at first and we had to reassure her that we had photographed downtown before,  but all doubts were gone when gave her a few sneak peaks on the back of the camera.    After a quick pit-stop at Dairy Queen (yes, this was my idea. I AM going back to Jiu Jitsu tomorrow so I might as well get one last craving in) we headed to one of our favorite spots for photographing in tall grass.  Since Mom was dressed in the same colors as Emily’s Street clothes we decided to through her in scene for a few images.  By this time Emily was a professional, posing exactly the way we guided her.   The below image is the very last frame from the session, just as the suns was saying goodbye.  I thought I would post it for this blog post but  I will post more from Emily’s Urban session soon.  Emily, Nyree, thanks for a great evening, we had a great time hanging out with the both of you, and it was very rewarding watching Emily’s enthusiasm grow as the session progressed.


Live PSH Business Portrait Webinar.

Monday, April 11th, 2011

Well I just finished my first Live PSH (Photography School House) Ditto Cam presentation where I showed viewers how to create some professional Business Portraits.   I have been doing business portraits for years and I personally think I have my system dialed in.  Creating a professional business portrait should take no more than 5 minutes if you have everything setup and ready to go before the client steps foot in your studio.  A few minor adjustments should be all you need to fine tune the portrait once your client steps in front of the camera.  I would personally like to thank Brian & Natalie for taking the time out of their busy schedule and allowing me the chance to create an updated business portrait for their business.

Here are 2 images from the Webinar.
