    Arrow An FBI crime scene photographer opens up about his job. . . .

    An FBI crime scene photographer opens up about his job, saying 'I see things people shouldn't see'...

    What keeps Buren Foster going is his focus on getting justice for crime victims: "After you take it in the initial feelings, you get to work," he says

    Not everyone who works for the FBI carries a gun and badge. Take Buren Foster, who joined the bureau in 1988 and carries something else that's indispensable: a camera. Foster, who has loved photography since middle school, joined the FBI in an administrative role but became a full-time photographer in 2006 after being trained in forensic photography. His job is taking photos of crime scenes a technically challenging job that can have an emotional impact.

    "I've seen my share of dead bodies," he tells PEOPLE. "I see things people shouldn't see I see them in their raw state."

    As a fan of British Murder Mysteries I note how often they never show the bodies, but only describe the fatal injuries in a forensic manner. I feel for those who have to take pictures and clean up!

    I had a friend that was a forensics photographer. He committed suicide. I always wondered if it was what changed him so dramatically.
