Mining & Industrial Photography
Our senior photographer, Nathan Archer, is a specialist in the area of heavy industrial and mining photography and has been photographing large infrastructure, construction and mine site projects across Australia for the last seventeen years. Mining and industrial photography is not just about photographing the site, the equipment, or the process, but also about capturing the stories of people that make the mine come to life.
Every site and shoot is unique, and there are many different objectives to be covered in each brief. The best photographs are a product of listening and planing. As Nathan gets to know your business, and what you want from the photos, video or drone shots, he will plan out a photo shoot that is tailored to your unique needs. Nathan works to understand the intricacies of the process, or piece of equipment and to produce genuine and visually appealing photos.
Nathan has photographed on mine sites all over Australia and is very comfortable in all areas of mining operations. He makes safety the number one propriety, and ensures that all PPE is being correctly worn in every image.
Getting the best mining and industrial photographs for your business requires specialty skills and equipment. Nathan and the team Archer Imagery have over 17 years of experience creating unique photographs for the mining and industrial sector.

Mine & Industrial Site Drone Photography & Video
Archer Imagery now offers aerial drone photography and video for the industrial and mining industries across Australia. Nathan brings his 16 years of ground based professional photography experience up into the air with our new drone capability.
The aerial perspective that a drone gives, brings a unique angle to your industrial or mine site photo shoot. With the use of a drone we can now show the true size and scale of your site, and the place that your product or service has within the whole operation.
Talk to us about adding drone photography shot by a true professional photographer to your next mining or industrial photo shoot. Call 0413 606 888 for more information.

Planning your mine site photo shoot:
Nathan works with his clients to identify the key outcomes from the shoot and to optimise the time on site. Depending on the specific requirements for the photos, Nathan will work with you to create photographs that meet your specific needs. The more specific brief that you can provide, the more tailored the images will be. For example, if you require photographs in a panoramic or square format for your website, or photos to fit into the graphic design for your annual report, or any specific details in which the images are to be used, all of this information will be used to inform his choices on the photo shoot.
Preparing all the personal and equipment required for the shoot can save a lot of time on the day. We recommend checking that all staff featuring in the photos are wearing correctly branded workwear, and that the locations are as clean as is appropriate but still genuine. If the shoot is on a mine site, ensure that all the required paperwork has been submitted, and all the required access permissions have been granted well in advance.
