I'm sure photographers can relate when I say I would love to spend more time shooting than working on the computer, but that's not a reality. I'm usually shooting at my Zeiss microscope three to four hours a day and then fitting in whatever studio, or location assignment comes along that day. In the age of FedEx, faxes, and e-mail, clients are more demanding. Being from Johns Hopkins, one of the top medical Institutions in the world, I always stress quality. Our visuals are seen all over the world in print or at meetings. Our images have to be first rate, the best. I'm always fighting the "that's good enough" mentality that some of our busy clients have. As far as other responsibilities, I'm an Associate Professor with dual appointments in the departments of Pathology and Art as Applied to Medicine, so teaching and publishing my work is expected. I'm also Director of the Photography and Graphics Laboratory here at Johns Hopkins, so there are all the personnel and budgeting issues to deal with.
