With the two profiles Dig Different magazine features each issue, we capture the work that contractors do through both words and pictures.

When photographers accompany contractors on job sites, far more photos are taken than are able to fit on the pages of the magazine. So we put together this gallery of “bonus” photos featuring the companies that have been profiled so far this year.
