Bill and Jeff are Back!

Both Jeff Martz and Bill Lemon have been very popular guests at PhotoFair and we are certainly delighted to have them back again.

Jeff will expand his interesting and dynamic talks on historical figures in Photography.

Bill Lemon will focus on some different lighting and lens work techniques beyond just Glamour in a new presentation with a live model on stage.

Jeff Martz History of Photography Lecture Series,

Part 2:  The Pioneers of Photography
Early 19th century photography develops under the pressure of many imperatives.  An intrepid group of dedicated amateurs explore the artistic potential of the calotype.  The public, eager for images of themselves, creates a massive new democratic market for portraiture.  The first professional studios respond with pioneering daguerreotype and collodion work that set the course for what the form will become.  Join photographer and art historian Jeffrey Martz as he introduces photographic revolutionaries like Anna Atkins, Hill & Adamson, Southworth & Hawes and more in an open forum featuring the best-possible reproductions.
