My recent experience with a photographer in our labs may be of interest as well. There were no PPE issues, as he was the building architect interested in photographing the lab, not the workers/actors.
He groomed the lab for the photos – straightening, arranging, moving trash cans out of sight. I laughed and said no one would believe it was a real lab. He replied that when he found himself talking to someone who laughed at his photos, he would know he was talking to a user – the person he needed to contact in order to do the job right.
Keep warm out there.

Have any of you ever put together "photo safety tips"? Our communication office has taken some publicity type photos and they don't always show the best lab safety practices. I've been asked to put together a guideline for them to use during these photo sessions in labs and non-lab areas on campus.
I know there's always feedback on other photos/video that make this list - mostly about PPE. I thought an easy to follow guide might help the photographer.
