Octapharma are an international pharmaceutical company. I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph their operations in France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Sweden. Perhaps the most challenging parts to any of these shoots are working in the highly restricted production areas where full protective clothing, gloves, face masks and goggles have to be worn at all times, making it sometimes tricky to operate a camera. A limited amounts of camera equipment is allowed into the clean areas to minimise the risk of contamination, so there were careful discussion and briefings with the art directors from Luminous before each shoot to ensure that the correct lenses and kit were taken off to be sterilized and made safe before being taken into the production areas.
