Having photographed at mine sites throughout Australia, I fully understand the challenges of working in that environment. Safety is the number one priority, and it is essential that all images created reflect that. For this project, I stayed on site for several days at a remote mine in Queensland. Embedding myself with the team allowed me to fully understand the process and capture all aspects of the service provided. For a mining photography project like this, I rarely get to call the shots. It’s up to me to work safely, being in the right place at the right time to capture the action as it happens.
