Vidant Health – Vidant Medical Transport Unit

As a photographer, I find myself meeting some very interesting people and getting to do some amazing things. I have been contracting for Vidant Health for 5 years and since day one I wanted to do a shoot on top of the Vidant Medical Transport (VMT) helipad. A couple months ago that day seemed to become a reality. The VMT team put in a request for a new group photo; would be the first in almost 15 years. What an honor. This team has been around for a long time and consisted of 10-15 team members in the beginning. Now today they are running around 150. My contact in the department, David Short, said to be prepared to have as many as 100 in the photo! The biggest group shot to date for me has been around 60 nurses for Vidant…well actually 200 or so for a Hatteras Hammock’s staff photo while almost being electrocuted by a power line but that is another post.

The main point of the project was to to capture the new group shot on the helipad and aerial photos of the two helipads. That meant a ride in the Eurocopter EC145. October 16th was the day of the shoot and I had done a scout of the location a couple weeks before. The day started at 6am with the shoot at 8am. Had four lights with two on a BatPac {Cannot say enough good things about the Profoto BatPac}. Took the group shot of 80-90 staff members then went up to shoot the helipads for their publications. Below are some videos and images that document the shoot.
