environmental portrait layout of Univerity of California MCB faculty by Mark Joseph Studio



















I recently finished what is, for a portrait photographer, a complete dream of an assignment: professional portraits for the academic faculty and staff of molecular and cell biology departments at the University of California.

A more interesting and charming group of people you will not find!

I look forward to sharing many of the project’s wonderful formal portraits in days to come. But I'll start with some photojournalistic context: a collection of environmental portraits capturing Cal MCB scientists at work—in the office, in the library, and in the lab.

If you’ve ever wondered who’s driving the promising bioscience breakthroughs of our future, these portraits offer a peek behind the scenes today!
