Healthcare Photography. Shooting in Hospitals? Well, yes, and No!
Over the years, I’ve done a lot of shooting in hospitals – with my camera.
Beginning in Baltimore, my career started moving when the healthcare marketing boom began. Healthcare photography was becoming an essential of healthcare marketing. This was a time, particularly in urban areas, medical institutions were beginning to compete actively with each other. Hospitals were mostly, at that time, non-profit organizations. Still, the drive to provide the best healthcare, have the best service and facility, motivated these institutions to strive to be recognized as the best.
I was at the right place at the right time because, after getting an opportunity to photograph for Johns Hopkins Medical Center, I began to win other healthcare photography opportunities at hospitals in Baltimore and the surrounding communities. I worked for Johns Hopkins, Mercy Hospital, Sinai Hospital, Gundry Hospital, Fallston General Hospital, Baltimore County Medical Center and Franklin Square Hospital.
In Pennsylvania, I have worked for the Conemaugh Health System at their main campus, at the Meyersdale Medical Center, Miners Hospital, for Somerset Hospital, Windber Medical Center, and the former Mercy Hospital and Lee Hospitals in Johnstown. I’ve also done photo shoots for Siemens Medical Imaging at the Mansfield Hospital in Mansfield, Ohio.
Healthcare photography will always constitute a large part of my business.
