Cats playing at night

CAT-SoldiersPond-WEB_GSL-3456Shooting in the rain and mud for Toromont Cat when road culvert upgrades required the closing of the 4 lane Trans Canada Highway west of St John’s, Newfoundland for a weekend. River damned, trench dug, culverts laid, buried and paved in three days. Required a bunch of Nikon Speedlights laying around in the mud to fill in the shadows from the massive generator powered work light towers. © 2015 Greg Locke

Room with a view

Ever wonder what the view from the top of that tower crane on the 351 Water Street construction site looks like? The best view in St. John’s belongs to the crane operator on this project. We did this shot from just below the operators booth approx 75 meters (and a 20 minute climb with gear BTW) off the ground. Now that we’re back on this project in real time (not just with time lapse cameras) we’re looking for the perfect day to do some photos from the boom. It’s a unique view of “The Bowl” that only a couple of people will ever experience in person. Photo by Greg Locke © 2012

Vale Long Harbour photos in Globe and Mail

This weekend the Globe and Mail’s Report on Business ran a story by Shawn McCarthy on the Vale nickel smelter construction at Long Harbour, Placentia Bay, Newfoundland. In the online edition they also ran a photo gallery of a larger selection of photos I shot when Shawn and I visited the site last month.
