The history of
photography is rich with inventors, photographers and dreamers. While our craft has
been around for 164 years, it is still being developed and improved by visionaries,
technicians, photographers and artists. What started as just a dream by a handful of
dreamers, is today on the verge of another century of change and new horizons. What we do
today, will be history tomorrow, what we do tomorrow will be our new challenges.
This workshop will outline over 30
major milestones that have brought us to this new century of possibilities. Each of these
milestones is interrelated and interdependent. Each was a building block for this new
medium of communications. While there was many more inventions and developments then 30
over the last century and half, due to limitations of space and time we have selected what
we feel were the key elements. For a summary of these key elements please
first review our Photography Time Line page. Further, when ever possible, we
have included links to other web sites so you can continue your own research.
Enjoy and learn from this fascinating
journey back into the history of our craft and track its progress forward into this
