Workin It Hard

Work'in It Hard

I spent most of the week and over 1800km's shooting equipment.
This 730 Articulated Rock Truck works moving clay for a new three million gallon lagoon
to be used by the town of Hudson Bay SK.
As the front bumper scrapes the ground it needed all of the six wheel drive to get through this soft wet clay.
In this shot I'm no more than eight feet from this on coming truck.
I have learned how to get very close to working equipment and at the same time gain the operators trust in allowing me to just that.
