This week I was up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, doing a science and technology shoot at Bio-Techne. I’ve done a few shoots for this company over the past couple of years and it’s always fascinating. So many cool research areas, high-tech machines, interesting processes and other cool things to photograph. I plan to post a few highlights in the coming weeks. But for now just this behind-the-scenes image taken by first assistant, Ron Newkirk.

As a commercial photographer in Minnesota I get to shoot a variety of subject matter, including healthcare photography, which is one of my favorite subject matters.
