Judging by the lack of movement on the RSS feeds, most pharma companies gave their employees the day off to celebrate Martin Luther King Day. So, as defacto Pharm Exec photo editor, I thought it might use this quiet time to show off some outtakes from our recent photo shoot with FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, as featured in the December issue.
The cover story by Jill Wechsler was supplemented by some amazing photos by DC-based editorial and portrait photographer Stephen Voss. I found him after doing some general searches on Google and instantly fell in love with his style of photography, which skews a bit on the dark side (as in contrast, not The Force)
The only thing I asked of Stephen was to make sure he captured Dr. Hamburg as a power player. He succeeded in spades, and I was blown away by the stunning photo of her—all smiles—against a lovely earth-tone wall. Check out some of the outtakes from the shoot after the jump. Enjoy the shots.
