In late January, I traveled to Canada with Backfocus Productions for a photo and video project for EVRlock.

EVRlock is a high strength connection used in the oil and natural gas industry. EVRlock was designed to withstand the high pressures and strains that modern drilling techniques, such as horizontal drilling and fracking, places on these types of connections.

Below are several of my behind the scenes photos from the three day shoot. We photographed and filmed in several of the steel mills in various locations throughout Canada.

On a side note, I must say this is the first time I've shot in temperatures below zero. I wasn't sure how my cameras would react. Both of my 5D Mark III's handled the -5 to -15 temps like a champ.

After you browse through the photos, be sure to scroll down to see the video.

The EVRlock connections are so precise that the threads are measured down to the micron. The video seen below is not just about the connector, but the people behind to scenes that help make, measure, design and test the connections. EVRlock not only makes a great connector, but the company works to make a great connection to their clients.

We do want to extend a HUGE word of thanks to: the agency Steele+Pixel Rocket Media  for knocking out some awesome graphics as always, Reclaim Creation  for sound recording and music, and Two Words Productionsfor helping to make this project possible.
