Earlier this year I was asked to take over physician portraits for a large health care system in eastern NC, Vidant Health. I have been working with them for a number of years, mostly commercial, location based photography. This new task presented a couple challenges: working around physician’s schedules and working around physician’s schedules. Everyone knows how “busy” docs are or at least that is how it looks. But to me it never really sunk in till I started to seeing behind the scenes. I thought my schedule was hectic. These people plan by the minute; I’m lucky if I go from my monthly calendar view to my weekly view.
With this my challenge was to travel to them but at the same time be consistent everywhere I went. Meaning, I take a full studio setup everywhere I go…Nags Head, Tarboro, Bertie County or as far south as Warsaw and Kenansville. All of these separated by as much as 3-4 hours drive time.
