One thing you’ll probably learn about Juniper Systems is that we like to keep our operations in-house as much as possible. From the design, to manufacturing, to support, it’s all done here at our Logan, Utah location. We sometimes get asked who does our marketing for us—we do all of that here too. In fact, residents of Logan and the surrounding areas may recognize well-known locations depicted in our photography. On our marketing team, we have a couple of very talented photographers and an excellent graphic designer who pulls everything together and makes it look awesome. For our marketing materials, we often need photos of our rugged handhelds in the environment that they will be used, so it’s always exciting to brainstorm photo ideas. It’s also made us experience first-hand how rugged—and often hazardous—many of these places are for field workers.
This week, I got to tag along on a photo shoot for our newest rugged handheld, scheduled to be released at the end of this year. Up nearby Providence Canyon is an old limestone quarry that opened in 1903 and operated for 80 years or so. The view of the beautiful valley below, along with the steep mountains of piled limestone indicative of decades of hard labor portrayed the rugged environment we were looking for perfectly.
