Due to a lack of support the event has been canceled
In a conversation with co- founder Bill Hodge of the EPW he asked what are we doing this October? We (NPPA, He and I) started the revolution. After seeing what the Television component of NPPA was doing with their workshop, we approached Charles Cooper and decided to start a hands on workshop for the still photographers.
With the support of Bill Pekala –Nikon, Dave Metz – Canon and Paul Curtis – Eastman Kodak the Electronic Photojournalism Workshop on Martha’s Vineyard 25 years ago. We all sat there with Photoshop as a beta if that, Kodak’s film scanner and prototype “electronic “camera’s. We were told that in the future you would sit in your kitchen having breakfast reading the paper on a electronic screen. John Long then President of NPPA started his 25 year term as ethics guru that week.
So this year we celebrate 25 years. We will have a discussion round table about: Where did we start –where did we go – where are we know – what is the future. This conversation will continue on the video component Saturday night October 4.
Were you there at the start of electronic imaging? Were you a faculty member, vendor or participant in the Electronic Photojournalism Workshop? We have come so far in a short time and your accomplishments need to be celebrated. Can you believe it has been 25 years since a small group of photographers and editors organized by the National Press Photographers Association gathered in Martha’s Vineyard for a week to use the new electronic equipment under newsroom deadline
It is time to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the first Electronic Photojournalism Workshop. Can you join us?
