Monday morning Timmins, Ontario greetings to one and all!
Weâ€™ll itâ€™s the first Monday morning photo of 2017 and youâ€™re probably thinking, â€œWait a minute, itâ€™s almost the end of January, where the heck have the promos been for this year?â€ Thatâ€™s a darn good question. The bottom line is that we just arenâ€™t shooting the amount of still photography from week to week that we have been in the past to justify sending out a weekly promo. Video work has taken over our business and we are just inundated with video projects. We are shooting more and more video and also doing a ton of video editing as well on projects that we are shooting and one’s that we arenâ€™t shooting, so itâ€™s keeping us very busy! Back two years ago in January of 2015, we made the official announcement that we were shooting video besides shooting still photography and our video business just exploded. Last year in 2016, video work has now become 70% of what Jan and I do and the world of still photography is less and less for us from a business standpoint.
So what does it all mean? Going forward, the weekly promo photos will be sporadic as youâ€™ve seen already this year. We might go weeks where we donâ€™t have anything to share and then you might see a weekly photo for a number of months at a time. We only want to send out our best photos and also ones that we have shot recently, so youâ€™re not looking at our library of images!
With all that said, hereâ€™s a photo from Sunday in Timmins, Ontario. This is the McIntyre Head Frame and it is the only building that remains from the McIntyre underground mine. The mine has been closed since 1988 and the property has been fenced out for safety.
Well itâ€™s time to get to work and unfortunately the wind chill this morning will be about -20, so thatâ€™s going to be fun!
We hope that you have a great rest of the week and thanks for taking the time to check out our work!
Kev and Jan
