i have had the honor of photographing the graduates of a local medical resident training program for the past two years (i will withhold the name for privacy reasons). honestly i so look forward to it not only because i am in awe of their intelligence and academic achievements but also because they are plain FUN and so excited to begin their practices and their lives (many of them are diving into international careers with wild adventures surely ahead of them!)
this year we had some real characters who were more than willing to let me capture their fun side .
i finally got the green light to post these (one graduate even said “he’d be honored to appear on your blog)”, but i did find myself wondering if it would be “appropriate” to post them. in the end i think most people agree that we’d all much rather see our family physician’s photo portrayed this way than a boring head shot. (personally i want to see my doctor having fun and enjoying life to the fullest! that is the BEST medicine!)
when i look at these images i feel happy and excited for LIFE. how about you?
