I have found an enjoyable niche in industrial photography and since I also enjoy the study of history, the Stave Lake Historical Hydro-electric Powerhouse has proven to be a fascinating place to work photographically.
The powerhouse was completed in 1912 with capacity expansion in the 1920s. It is a well-preserved example of the early days of electrification in Canada.
No matter the weather outside (wind, rain, snow, sleet) it is always comfortable and relatively quiet to spend time looking for unique perspectives to capture on film with a variety of cameras and film formats from lens to pinhole and small to large format, there is always something to see and photograph. Nevertheless, on nice days (most-of-the-time), images can also be discovered on the grounds of the Powerhouse.
