I'm not sure how "sexy" any of these shots turned out. Okay, well some of them were, but a lot more where on the lines of this shot. Over the course of a couple days I darted around the various locations of the vet school trying to make the shots work in between their hectic class schedules. Often, I would only get twenty minutes or less to pick a location, set up, and hit the poses I was after. Fortunately for me, a few of the guys had some of their own ideas and weren't "shy" about presenting them to me. This shot definitely takes the cake. The school board wasn't too keen on this particular portrait and instead asked the class to use a more clothed version that I took, but to me, this is the image that should have made the month.
Each student was photographed with a setting and props that revealed (pun) the focus of their study and in the case of this guy... well, I suppose chickens and livestock would be the subject... (feel free to imagine and insinuate other more fun captions and meaning than poultry medicine). Because of the speed I was working at and the limited planning, the series was shot with available light on basic 400 speed black and white film. Considering the time and lighting restraints, I'm very pleased with how they turned out. If I ever get around to it, I may scan all of the calendar and post it up so they can be viewed here on my page, but for now you'll have to be (ahem) satisfied with this portrait.
And remember: This man is a doctor...he saves lives.
Thanks for reading.
