Laser Spine Institute, Part 2: Interiors (Oklahoma City Architectural Photographer)

In addition to covering the grand-opening ribbon-cutting celebration for Laser Spine Institute’s new Oklahoma City surgical center, I was tasked with providing interior architectural photography, for general marketing purposes.

I really enjoyed my assignment with Laser Spine Institute, not only because it stretched my skills by requiring multiple types of photography and almost every piece of gear I own, but also because I was behind-the-scenes in areas out of the public eye, like when I shot the inside of the Hard Rock Casino in Tulsa. But we’ll start with the public areas first. Here is a view of the patient waiting room:

You know how most hospitals are all brown and gray with depressing lighting? Why is that? In contrast, the LSI facility exhibits much more pleasant design features than most medical facilities, with giant windows casting lots of natural light around, and soothing but colorful decor. Here is a view of the main lobby and entrance:

The exam rooms had narrow dimensions, but that’s what my wide angle lens is for: 🙂

The hallway leading to the exam rooms showcases a long line of testimonials from previous patients:

And nearby, the nurses’ station bustles with activity:

Patients often come from out-of-town for treatment at LSI. When they do, they stay for 5 days, and they and their families can relax in the Cafe:

One angle of the pre- and post- op prep area (Note: patients walk out 45 minutes after surgery! Amazing!):

On the other side of the pre- post-op room, there is another station for the surgical nurses:

And last but certainly not least, the sterile OR:

In case you missed my related Instagram post and Tweet, I had to wear surgical garb for the OR shots since it’s a sterile environment. Check me out in this iPhone shot one of the staff took for me (I look like I weigh 500 pounds in that one-size-fits-all one-piece suit! Hilarious!):

Next up – Part 3 with a few HDR exterior shots of the surgical center. Stay tuned!
