Photography and Passion

Photography has been a living passion in the lives of many. A sheer driving force in the backbone of those always striving for perfection in bringing a reproduction of something existing or created to life in the form of a visual art piece. An ever evolving art form and a rapidly expanding medium ensures the serious enthusiast and professional a growing and endless array of knowledge and expertise to create images that have the potential to evoke emotion which in turn makes the art limitless. Just as this art form evolves and recreates itself, so does CWPhotography.

Mining photography for Anglogold Ashanti at their Mponeng mine - Copyright - Anglogold Ashanti

Ever wondered what it looks like deep underground in a gold mine?

Jolandie and I had the awesome experience to shoot for AngloGold Ashanti at their Mponeng mine, which is the deepest mine in the world!

It extends over 4 kilometers below the surface and is one of the most substantial gold mines in the world. 
These images where shot in the training level which is at about the 83rd level, but the conditions are pretty similar, although down in the actual working mine, it's allot darker, wetter and tougher. 
Permission was granted for this level only, as interruptions to production and safety concerns could be kept to a minimum.
