Healthcare Industry Photography
From physician portraits to surgical tools, digital imaging equipment to exam rooms, Ted DeCagna has substantial experience in medical photography. His medical photography portfolio includes surgery subjects, medical lobby photos, cancer treatment equipment, physician examinations, and head shots. His images are used for marketing materials, educational brochures for patients about medical procedures, for medical practice websites and more.
Among his more unusual assignments, Ted has shot inside an operating room to capture a complex eye surgery in process and at a distinguished cancer treatment center in Rahway, New Jersey, photographing patients as they received radiation
Aside from his skill with camera and lens, Ted effectively uses the tools of a medical environment to enhance a photo and transform what could be an ordinary photo into a compelling one. Past examples include using an X-ray light table to provide a perfect color and light prop to capture the moment. For a photo of eye exam taking place in a nearly dark room, Ted captured a single concentrated beam of light from the machine, enabling him to execute a very exciting photo due to the range of light contrast.
