In 2002, we was contacted by Veeco Metrology, a nano technology company, to photograph at their location the products that they developed. The only caveat was that all the photography had to take place in a level three clean room, which meant having to thoroughly clean every piece of photographic equipment that we needed for the assignment before we could enter the room. As seen in the opening photograph, we were also required to wear clean room apparel, or a bunny suit, to prevent contamination. Working in tight quarters is always challenging and requires the use of ultra wide angle lenses, while controlling distortion as much as possible.
In 2010 Veeco was sold to Bruker, a worldwide corporation, who we now photograph for.
