I’m on my way to upstate Michigan to photograph a pro bono job – at a dairy farm that has installed a methane capture facility. I’m eager to see what it looks like, though I’m equally eager to get out of Chicago airport – been here for hours.
This farm makes it’s own electricity from the methane off the cow &$?$. The amazing this is that after they have their electrical needs met, they can actually pipe the excess gas off the anaerobic collection into the city’s natural gas stream. Even cooler than my solar panels. But I’ll have to report back on how it smells.

We just finished shooting the 2009 BioMarin annual report last month – this is the same company for which I shot the patient in my earlier post.

The lab images were shot using real employees – we’re in the process of editing video that I shot of these scenes as well.

excerpt:
… a laugh so infectious I spent two hours sitting on the floor with her grinning ear to ear behind my lens.  She didn’t care that I was shooting so much … She was just happy that I was there – spending time, playing.  At one point she donned a Cinderella dress, closed her eyes, and twirled around in the middle of her room.  No cares about her bones; at that moment, she was a princess.
