In sometimes surprising ways, associations play direct and indirect roles in bringing the products, services, and activities of daily life to people around the world. Including cameras.
Professional Photographers of America: For some, photography can turn from a hobby into a career. The Professional Photographers of America helps those wedding, portrait, and school photographers run their businesses and manage their copyrights.
Camera & Imaging Products Association: From families on vacation to professional photographers, everyone loves to capture memories with the help of a camera lens. In 2015, Camera & Imaging Products Association members—which include Canon, Nikon, Olympus, and Sony, among others—produced 35,215,670 digital cameras to make sure they can.
The Photographic Historical Society: Did you know George Eastman, the founder of Kodak, invented the first film photography in his mother’s kitchen? If so, you might be interested in joining the camera and photography collectors of The Photographic Historical Society at their next PhotoHistory Symposium held in Eastman’s house.
