On the weekend of the 28 and 29 November, I volunteered my time to photograph the annual Mining Emergency Response Competition (MERC) at Langley Park, Perth.
Now into its fifth year, MERC sees nine of WA’s top rescue teams demonstrate how they respond to a range of realistic emergency scenarios, including fire fighting, road crashes and first aid.
I’ve been volunteering at this event since it first started. Assigned to the vertical rescue scenario, it’s my job to take photographs of them in action. The images will be used for a range of collateral promoting mines emergency response.
As a photographer, it’s definitely a challenge to take photographs for this kind of event. But it’s rewarding too.
