Profiling scientists at work is an area of photography that I’m particularly fond of, and represents a large component of the Sciencelens offering.

Coming to grips with the technicalities of the scientist or researcher’s work and figuring out how to capture this visually can be quite complex. Add to this the human factor – staging the scientist in the image to form part of the composition, while at the same time making him or her feel at ease in front of the camera, and you have a photographic challenge that is tough, but at the same time very rewarding.
