Architectural & lifestyle photography: TLCD + Kaiser Permanente

Collaboration, laughter and commitment to excellence: three key ingredients for a successful shoot. Working with the team at TLCD is always a pleasure, and our recent shoot at the Kaiser San Rafael, CA Campus was one of my faves. TLCD Architecture initiated this shoot, with support from Kaiser Permanente and Swinterton Builders.

To tell a more complete story about how the spaces are used, we created a “patient” and “medical team” made up of staff from Kaiser and TLCD. Can you spot the real technicians and RNs?

As you can imagine, we shared a lot of laughs as we worked through a few of the medical scenarios that play out in these spaces. The jokes and camaraderie made this shoot great fun, but I think we created successful images because we had a team of committed and professional individuals who were willing to work hard, collaborate and find solutions to challenging creative problems. I’m grateful for the team at TLCD: always great to work with; the Kaiser employees we roped into the shoot; and especially my crew: Kelsey Floyd for the assist with Peggy Kinstler and Patrice Reynolds on retouching.

Extra thanks to our patient, who will remain anonymous to protect her fake medical records ;-)

Tyler’s Tips Episode 32: Why we can’t see things

As a photographer, it’s helpful to see the world objectively. The tricky bit is that the human mind is really bad at objectivity. We often miss details that impact our photos because subconsciously, our brains decide what’s important to pay attention to and what’s not.
