OK so when people ask me what I do I tell them I'm a photographer and I take pictures of people and pets. If it has eyes and a heartbeat then that's me.
From time to time that changes. I've done some work for the Spire Bushey hospital, headshots and the like, and I got a phone call late last week. This isn't a word for word transcription but it will be quite close
Them : "Hi it's xxx from Bushey Spire, I know it's really late notice but don't suppose you are free on Saturday morning are you"
Me : "I could be, what time, whatcha got"
Them : "Well it would be quite early, we are having our new MRI machine delivered and a few pictures of the whole thing would be great"
Me : " Yeah sure no probolem, oh 8am you say, that's fine, done in an hour or so. Great see you then"
I dropped in on the Friday for a quick site survey, as all good photographers should and that was that.
The weather on Friday evening was abysmal, 4 seasons in one day and a howling storm through the night. Saturday morning came bright crisp blue skies.
For those that don't know MRI machines are basically a huge magnet and some casing, they weigh a great deal and cost a lot of money. This was quite a significant thing. I guess you never really know where one job will lead you to and I'm not sure I'd get the chance to shoot this again so here's a few pics for you.
Finally a selfie of me with a hard hat, no idea what that would have done to help me but always happy to comply.
