John Wade began his career on local newspapers, working his way from junior reporter to deputy editor. He was editor of the UK magazine Photography for seven years before becoming a freelance writer and photographer, and has written and illustrated numerous articles on camera history for photographic and other magazines in the UK, America and Australia. John has also written, edited and contributed to more than 30 books on photographic history, photographic techniques and social history.
Johns talk will be in two parts. First he will cover what camera collecting is all about – the how and why – tailored to an audience of amateur photographers rather than camera collectors. This will be followed by a presentation called “Fifty Landmark Cameras”. John will bring along a few unusual classic cameras for members to look at and (carefully!) play with.
