In the following I would like to show you some photographs from a recent assignment which I did as mining photographer in Indonesia for the coal industry. 

My client was ROCKTREE, a global, Singapore based logistics company with maritime operations in Kalimantan the Indonesian part of the island of Borneo. 

Assignments relating to photography for Indonesia’s coal mining industry always come with a degree of adventure. I can go to far-flung places and I am privileged to visit places that are off limits for anyone who is not involved in one way or another in the mining industry.

This photo gig took me to Samarinda, the capital city of East Kalimantan province – on the island of Borneo.

My work almost exclusively to place on the water. Partly on the Mahakam river, Indonesia’s largest river and the other part offshore. About 40 nautical sea miles (about 75 km) there is an anchorage point where the coal is loaded onto larger and very large vessels to shipped to destinations around the world.

Let's see the pictures:
