The 2013 University of Vermont Medical School, Department of Surgery, annual report is out and it looks great! This was a huge project for me, the main portion taking the better part of 3 months. We covered a lot of ground, highlighting people and procedures of each department.
I love this type of photography. Working on the fly, every situation is different, there are time pressures, you have to be flexible with the situations and think creatively under pressure. The lighting was always ad-hoc, mixing available light with flash, and always trying to push the edges to see what happens. An then of course there’s the subject matter; I always want to ‘peer behind the curtain’ and see what most don’t get to. I think shooting in surgery counts towards that. The OR is a very unique environment and it was truly a privilege to be able to photograph the men and women who work in them everyday.
Here are some shots of the actual printed version. It’s so nice these days to be able to see your work on paper. There’s really nothing like holding a photo. This particular annual report is extra fun to hold, the cover has a soft, creamy, coating that feels amazing .
