Forensic Photographer

By: Rachel Moore

What do Forensic Photographers do?

Forensic photographers take detailed and accurate photographs of crime scenes and accidents of things like tire marks, footprints, fingerprints, blood splatters, bullet holes, and other unique evidence. They are also required to take detailed photos of injures and their may also be dead bodies too. These photos record the location and evidence of the crime scene or accident. The photos are used as evidence in hearings and court proceedings. Forensic photographers are expected to be able to work efficiently and in challenging environments and should be able to work without disturbing other crime scene investigators.
