Depicted are the precision and manual dexterity, with which Jeff installs drywall at a home renovation project. Years of practice and dedication have enabled Jeff to master his trade. He shows no sign of slowing down on the job.

Nail Gun LR DSC_6852Luis, is portrayed operating a pneumatic nailer. Kneeling down at the worksite, this young worker, photogenically evokes a prideful perfection, in doing his task.

Tom
After a long hard days work, Tom rests. He is gazing downward, as if reflecting on all they accomplished, and all that lies ahead.
Keith
Keith runs the controls with intense concentration, being careful to make all of the correct moves with the machinery.
Mason
Luis’ perfect posture, and the tension of the muscles in his arms allude to the exactitude, with which he must handle the saw. Dreimiller has created a sort of dreamlike and misty surroundings for Luis’ workplace, playing on the dust, that must be flying in the air.
RYAN
Ryan is looking on at the work, and despite being clothed to withstand the cold temperatures of Ohio, his aim is to plow forward, and finish the job.
Here we have Mark, happy to be finished with blowing away the snow from yet another storm blasting through Hiram, Ohio. Dreimiller shows empathy for the drudgery of the task at hand, in hopes there are no more storms in the forecast, or, for them to at least subside.
