In addition, he has generously served many audiences in his local community, creating portraits of Austin Community College (ACC) students as well as country music stars and singer-songwriters in the Austin area.Mr. Brainard’s talent combined beautifully with Paradigm’s well-established and high-quality pharmacy technician college textbooks during our first project together. This 2008 effort began with a photo shoot in the state-of-the-art Pharmacy Lab at ACC to provide high-quality technical images of pharmacy laboratory processes and techniques for Paradigm’s brand new Pharmacy Labs book. Subsequent ACC lab photo shoots by Mr. Brainard in 2011 and 2012 updated and deepened our rich bank of pharmacy and pharmacy lab photos and added hundreds of technically specific images to our entire line of pharmacy technician textbooks, including valuable images of sterile compounding techniques and procedures. Thousands of pharmacy technician students benefit from the pairing of Mr. Brainard’s beautiful and accurate technical photos with Paradigm’s full suite of top-quality pharmacy technician textbooks.
