BevShot images are made by first crystallising the drink of choice on a lab slide. Using a standard light microscope with a camera attached, the light source is polarised and passed through the crystals. This creates the magnificent colours we see in our favorite drinks featured on this site.
BevShots are licensed from Florida State University and Michael Davidson, but the man who keeps the party going is Lester Hutt, President of BevShots MicroArt, LLC. BevShots is the perfect blend of Hutt’s business and science background. While working on his graduate degree in chemistry from UC Berkeley, Hutt worked on NASA’s Mars probes searching for evidence of past life on the red planet. Apple Inc. then called on him to be a part of history as they released their revolutionary new product, the iPod.
