I didn’t know anything about braces or prosthetics before I walked into Lethbridge Orthotics and Prosthetics. We started off with some simple product shots and head shots on-site in their building, then got a few of their facility and their staff in action. This fall we then were able to photograph some of their actual clients, and it was an amazing experience. These clients were telling me stories of what their life was like before they had their custom braces and what a good experience they had and I was honestly touched. It was one of those feel-good experiences and it was awesome to see what a difference the staff are making in people’s lives.
For the lifestyle shoot, we wanted to show that people can lead active lives with the proper bracing and prosthetics. We had a wide range of ages to work with and it was the windiest day I had ever seen in Lethbridge – when you have shot weddings you’re very aware of the wind and you get a pretty good gauge for how hard it can blow. I’ve never shot in that kind of wind, but we had everyone lined up so we went ahead!
