Before and After Photography for Plastic Surgeons & Staff
Photographic Studio Equipment designed for “Before and After” publication quality photographs having perfect registration, consistent lighting meeting or exceeding professional standards. A turn key approach with on-site available.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has done a great job in establishing standards for plastic surgeons taking before and after photos of patients. This includes a publication called “Photographic Standards in Plastic Surgery” and a PDF version is available for your viewing. After reviewing this publication it would seem that there would be compliance with the standards that have been set, but that is definitely not the case.
If you review the publication it becomes very apparent that taking before and after photos as is it being done in most plastic surgeons offices is far from the professional standards that have been set. A whole list of problems that this has created could be listed including loss of revenue. What needs to be done is setting up an area in your office dedicated to taking patient photos with the right equipment and staff training. The small investment in equipment will start to show a return immediately. If you already have a Digital SLR camera Studio lights and the Camera Track sells for as little as $2500.

Crime Scene Photography Training
Almost every Law Enforcement Officer has a Digital Camera provided to them for use in the field, but almost none have had any formal training. When the cameras are used the results are; poor quality images and photographs that do not properly document the investigation.
The reason that departments have invested in Digital Camera equipment was to have photographs in situation where the first officer on scene will be the only one that will be taking photos because it is not cost effective to have forensic teams or medical examiner for every event. Their services are only used in major crime scenes. Can you think of any other piece of equipment that your officers have been provided with that they have not be trained on? Without training the return on investment is always poor.
Let’s look at the benefits of having the right type of “Crime Scene Photography Training”
- Photographs taken are in focus, and properly exposed.
- Using the correct procedures for an investigation the photos will “tell a story” showing prospective and relationships of the evidence.
- Increased credibility of testimony in court and in written reports.
- Eliminate having to return to the scene to retake photos.
This Workshop was developed in cooperation with the Jackson County Medford, Oregon) Sheriffs Office Investigation Division for the needs of Police Detectives and Patrol Officers first on scene. Quite often the workshops are sponsored by local departments and offered to other agencies in their local area.
