As a "normal" photographer sharing your vision with the world is one of the most rewarding parts. As a Medical Photographer it's one of the most frustrating parts, as you have to keep everything private.  

That being said, work for a major university in their ophthamology photography department. Translation: I take photos of people's eyes (from the front of the eye to the back).  The things I see I can never capture with my own cameras at home.  It is probably my favorite job as I've held almost everyjob you can think of. Which include; a house painter, coffee maker and even a jean speacialist. The only catch is the keeping the images "for your eyes only."

 So on a regular basis I take photos of patient's retinas (the film part of your eye) looking for any changes going on back there. I shoot with a Canon G15 & Canon 5D Mark II hooked up to a microscope that magnifies up to 40x for anything on the surface of the eye or anything around the eyelids.  (I know, it's awesome) ;)

The other day I got to photograph a punctual plug; A punctual plug is a plug that they insert into your tear duct, helping to cause the issue of excessive tearing of the eye but, I digress.  The plug had come out and the lid had grown around it so it was sitting on the top of the eyelid like a golf tee on the green.

I have countless stories from everyday like this that I can never share the photos.

But!!!!!


What I can share is what I find on my journeyies through Rural North Carolina. Some trips I strike gold and I find a place, stay there for hours photographing. Other trips I don't really see anything that catches my eye, but it's all about the adventure and finding yourself. Hopefully in finding myself I can expand my horizons and push myself to the next level.
