Industrial photography always poses interesting challenges from safety to lighting. Going to these unusual places is always fascinating. To see how things are done, constructed, and produced has intrigued me since I was a young lad taking in the train yards in Montreal.
The very first portfolio I ever created was of the train system in Toronto while studying Photography at Ryerson University. Some of those places don’t even exist anymore! Since those early days I have taken my skills as a photographer down into a mine in Thompson, Manitoba, photographing a local chicken hatchery, onto construction sites including airports and high-rise buildings to mention a few. Each new assignment offers such interesting perspectives with fine people doing interesting jobs.
I’ve learned so much along the way about industrial photography and about these industries.
