Education Night - Photojournalist Fred Larson
Fred discusses his 30 years as a photographer with the San Francisco Chronicle
Frederic Larson, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, will discuss his more than 30 years as a photojournalist — from chasing fire engines and developing film in gas-station bathrooms, to walking the streets of the Tenderloin with a “boombox” camera, wielding the first digital camera at a Superbowl and continuing to make a living in today’s world of selfie sticks and iPhones.
Fred will cover his career from B&W photography to the introduction of the first digital cameras and then finally some photography challenges in our fast moving digital age.
Twice named California Photographer of the Year, Larson’s interests and images are wide-ranging and varied.
In addition to his Friends of Photography MeetUp (whose stated goal is to help everyone take better pictures, become a better photographer — and have fun), he leads workshops in San Francisco and Hawaii. He has received numerous awards for his work, “But,” he writes on his website, “the most satisfying photography for me is my documentary work … stories I have developed on my own … I have met people who have inspired me and given my work a new passion, people of unwavering spirit who survive despite horrible situations.”
