In New York City this year the school was held in larger quarters, as formerly it had been impossible to seat all who desired to attend. The larger quarters gave ample accommodation to the increased number of attending photographers and everybody was made comfortable.
No professional photographer can afford to miss the school and when it is held within reaching distance, you should not fail to attend.
You can learn all that is new and good in photography, as the latest and best processes are constantly added to the programmer.
The instructors are expert not only in technical knowledge and skill, but are expert in teaching you the points that enable you to become equally successful. They are able to impart their knowledge to you in a way that enables you to grasp the details and carry them away with you.
In the Eastern cities photographers are supposed to be right up to the minute on things photographic, yet they take great interest in these school sessions, as experience has taught them that there is much to learn by attending. Some photographers located between Boston and New York attended both the Boston school and the one held in New York City the following week, which is pretty good evidence of the value, to them, of the sessions.
The school in its annual tour over the continent comes in contact with conditions everywhere, and the staff being progressive is constantly on the lookout for new ideas that will be of benefit to professional photographers. These new ideas if good are immediately incorporated in the school instruction and you thus get the best from the East, West, North and South. The best as collected by a competent staff of photographic experts is surely of interest to every live photographer.Watch the school dates as they appear from month to month in these pages.
