Superior Prosthetics Photo Shoot

February was a busy month.  On top of producing some awesome images for an educational company in Downtown Pittsburgh and shooting a ton of tabletop product work; Travis Neely Photography got to work on a pretty exciting project.  Ten Fast Feet, an interactive design agency in Nashville, Tennessee contracted me to travel down and produce a complete set of images for a major rebranding of their client Superior Prosthetics.  Superior as it turned out is a pretty cool company.  They provide ultra customized prosthetic limbs to amputees.  What makes them different is the patient care and attention to detail they maintain to bring comfort, confidence, and a splash of individuality to their clients’ lives.  Each prosthetic device is manufactured on site from absolute scratch by a complete staff (mostly amputees themselves).  In the end, Superior can add custom socket covers to patients to bring a bit of their personality out.  While there we saw a Batman themed prosthetic on a 5 year old boy, Football team themed legs, and even one high tech transparent piece that showed off the biomechanics and was complete with a microprocessor system.

The plan of attack was to showcase some of their success stories with heroic styled portraits, photograph head shots of the staff and executives, and produce several different concept images ranging from a young boy at the playground to athletes.

The entire shoot went off without a hitch and the work produced really made everyone excited about how the entire rebranding effort was going to look in the end.  I was really happy to be asked to shoot this project and to be able to travel down to Nashville and experience the city.  Everyone that I met along the way both at Ten Fast Feet and at Superior were really good folks.

Below is a small sneak peek at some of the images produced.  These were all made in two days time with our Phase One Digital Medium Format camera and edited in Capture One Pro.  The project was art directed by Sean Furr.
