Alexza Pharmaceuticals in Mountain View needed photography for an annual report. We were contacted by their talented designer Audrey Hane from Hane Chow. Working with Audrey and the great team from Alexza we created a list of photography to be used in and beyond the annual report including, environmental portraits of CEO Tom King, shots of the manufacturing floor, product photography and executive headshots for their website.
Our favorite part of the shoot was the group shot of all employees in front of the Alexza facility. We rented a scissor lift to get the right angle to shoot the group and get the building in the background. During the manufacturing shoot, I donned a bunny suit to photograph in the clean room environment. As I shot the team relayed me instructions on my iPhone. I had never been in a clean room, so it was another first. For the product shots, I took their packaging to my studio and shot them on a tabletop with a white background and plexiglass base.
If you are looking for a commercial photographer with a wide range of skills to create photos for your website, we would love to brainstorm about the possibilities. Please contact us. We can scout the site and create a shot list to make your website or annual report tell your story through photography.
