London: Philip Gatward

"A really exciting sector of the corporate world for me is the life science and Biomed industry. So this month I'd like to show you some of my recent projects from this sector.

I use a multi-disciplined approach, i.e. portraiture, still life, location shoots and film, to give each company a visual language that integrates in with their pioneering research and products.

Working on location, in a containment lab, can be a challenge, especially wearing a funky blue Biosafety suit, but I find it genuinely exciting working directly with the people that are going to beat cancer, Alzheimer's, etc.

The Biosafety contamination issue in these labs has lead me to develop a system of lighting I can take in to the BSL areas. And I have developed an approach to shooting that doesn't limit the kind of images I can make."
