One of the difficulties of research photography is being able to see the organisms that the researcher works with. Projecting a slide of their work behind them is a dramatic way to include both.
Dr. Gladys Ayala, Medical Professor and Dean of Students
Education photography does not have to be complicated. One light, an expressive teacher and a diverse group of students and there you have it. It is all in the gesture.
Sisters at Medical Clinic
Children always have a good time when you give them something to do that their mothers may not otherwise allow. Competition is good too. I wonder who jumped the highest?
Occasionally we are asked to make very dramatic images with lots of color. Here we used nine separate lights with colored gels. No photoshop here.
Jawad Rashid, Medical Student
Oh, to be young and handsome...and save lives!
Dr. Stephen Moshman, Professor of Medicine
Medical school can be fun. I try to make as many friends as I can with the students because you never know if one of these young people will be holding your heart in their hand one day.
Young Diabetes Patient
Having a daughter with Type One Diabetes, we were just as happy as this young lady when they developed a new insulin pen.
Dr. Doris Bucher, Immunologist
Dr. Bucher developed the vaccine for H1N1 Swine Flu. Why is she crossing her hands? Because it looks better than not.
Sean Kivlehan, Medical Student
We needed to show the foreign service work of this young doctor. Projection is always tricky because any light you add to light the subject tends to wash out the projected image, but not if you use the projection to light the subject.
Dr. Yuk-Ching Tse-Dinh and her TB Research Team
Go team, Go! These are the people who find the stuff to help us live longer. If politicians could only work together like these folks do, think how much better the world could be.
Dr. Darrick Antell, Cosmetic Surgeon Extraordinaire
I was raised to be a surgeon. This could have been me. Can’t imagine being any luckier than I am, though, having chosen the path of meeting new people every day and preserving their beauty.
Dr. T.S. Dharmarajan, Geriatrician, Professor, Giver of Care
It is a goal of mine to always show a human connection in my photography. Doctors are a perfect means to show how we can tend to each other’s needs.
Tobias Raum, Cancer Researcher, Munich, Germany
Frank and honest. Clean and organized. Precise. Just the way I like it.
Atlantic Health Cardio Fitness Testing, Morristown, NJ
We like to produce staged situations so that they look real. Without the nurse’s eye connection, expression and gesture, the photo would have been dull. It took some work to get there but we did.
Pre-Natal Unit, Danbury Hospital
Touch...best medicine in the world.
Osteopathic Students, Touro College
Teaching photographs are always more successful when the students are truly involved with the learning. It helps to have an engaging professor.
Kaitlyn Cashman, Physical Therapy Student
There are no skeletons in the closet here. Not sure if that is because there are no closets or if it is because the pursuit of human care demands open honesty.
New York Medical College
My client was struggling with the task of how to illustrate the use of social media in medical education for the cover of a magazine. This was our solution. NEXT!
Drs. Sharon Pine and Hatem Sabaaway, Cancer researchers, husband and wife.
I work with my wife as well but I don’t think we look this good. Makes for a full existence.
Dr. Yuk-Ching Tse-Dinh, Tuberculosis Researcher
Can you believe this was done in a tiny crowded lab? I think they thought I was nuts to do this elaborate setup using the glass door of one of their cabinets to shoot through bacteria cultures. Success is in the gesture and intensity of her connection with the work.
