At the end of last year I was commissioned to take some shots of the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) for their annual report. The EBI is a centre for research and services in bioinformatics (the subject of my PhD), part of European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), located on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Hinxton near Cambridge. Here are a few of what I came up with.

I thought I’d better get a few of the oak tree that’s part of the EBI logo so I got as close as I could! I like the way the canopy covers so much of the image, it almost feels like you’re inside the tree. There’s a tree on Wimbledon common that I climbed then tried to take a planet but there were too many parallax issues and it wasn’t a good place for a tripod!


I’m really keen on interior shots with complex ceilings. I used my tripod and Nodal Ninja for this one so it wasn’t too hard to stitch; if I’d done it handheld I’m sure I’d have spent a while longer touching it up.


Here’s where all the science goes on. This is my friend Mark who I used to work with at Inpharmatica. He’s in John Overington’s chemoinformatics group. Big thanks to John (who was also at Inpharmatica) for getting me involved in this project.

I shot all of these with my Nodal Ninja, bracketed then Enfused, before finishing with some Topaz Adjust.
