Graham Construction

Sometime in the beginning of August my wife and I were driving and we passed by a Graham Construction sign, at which time I told her that I needed to figure out a way to add them to my client list. Having grown up around Estevan, SK, which is always undergoing some form of construction, I've grown up seeing Graham Construction signs all over the place my entire life.  Coincidentally, two weeks later I got a phone call from an agency in Calgary that was working with Graham and wanted me to bid a multi-day job shooting a bunch of portrait work for the company. Boom. Graham was very specific about wanting to use their actual employees for the portraits to best represent who they are as a company, so we spent a couple of days shooting at the head office in Calgary as well as at one of their construction sites downtown.

Here are a few of the portraits we created during that time:

And some behind the scenes, because well... who doesn't love behind the scenes.

EPT Clean Oil | Industrial Photography

I get excited about shooting industrial photography. Sure, the weather sometimes sucks, (it was -30C with a 50km wind) but I'm given access to places I would never normally be granted access to, and I get to learn about various industries and how things are done from people who are genuinely excited about what they do. My job is to follow along, learn what I can, and create a visual representation of the work they complete. It's challenging, it's interesting, and it's always different. For this shoot we were just outside of Camrose, AB at the Cargill canola crushing plant. The crew from EPT were there to clean the oil that would be used for the new turbine at the plant, and they brought me along to create some photography that will be used for their marketing materials. Turns out, brand new oil is actually dirty as hell from a particle level which can cause all kinds of issues, and EPT takes care of that. Who knew? Like I said, I learn all kinds of things doing this work.

Here's a sample of what we created:
