I have been very blessed to have the opportunity to serve a number hospitals, physicians and medical facilities in my time as a commercial photographer. One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how the true love of their job shines in the photos.
It's about people...
Many people just think a health profession means - making people better by "fixing" their immediate condition.
Maybe it's that way somewhere, but each doctor, nurse or healthcare worker I've had the opportunity to photograph, has re-iterated their true mission..."to care for, but mostly ABOUT people" as one physician told me.
Healthcare professionals are some of the most fun & down to earth people I've had the chance to work with. Many times as a photographer I'm hired to bring in models and talent. Not recently. I was a bit leary at first, seeing that they may not have the experience a model might have. That said, photographing actual doctors, nurses and healthcare workers has brought a reality and sincerity to these healthcare photography projects.
These photos are of "real" nurses & doctors. The nature of their mission & their sincere expressions show what they are really about. You can see in every photo, that they really love what they do and they wouldn't have chosen any other job in the world.
God bless 'em.
