Seminars in the 70’s and 80’s

Back in the 1970’s and 80’s, there were only about two dozen photographers from the Photographic Society of America (PSA) who presented photo workshops or all-day photo seminars. I am happy to say that I was one of them, with six all-day photo seminars presented to large photo organization across the USA and over a hundred photo education programs to camera  clubs.

“PSA was considered the largest photo organization in the world”

I also presented photo educational programs at the annual national convention of the Photo Society of America that had over 20,000 members, both amateurs and professionals. Back in the 70’s and 80’s, PSA was considered the largest photo organization in the world.

Today, photo magazines have page after page of advertising that sponsor all-day photo seminars and workshops by camera manufacturers, often using new and young photographers who made a name for themselves in the digital age of photography. Individuals who never knew anything about photography before the digital age are now advertising their workshops on the Internet.

“This could be the Golden Age of photography”

This could be the Golden Age of photography with new things coming. At 97 years old, I wish I could be around to see them.
