Working Inside the Box - Photography by Jim Brockman
Jim Brockman Photo Club

We, the Jim Brockman Photo Club, would like to have a showing in his honor.  He has had many displays at the Fairfield Art Center, and we can’t think of a better place to honor him; Below is his bio.

Jim Brockman started the Photo Fun Club over 43 years ago.  Jim is a self-taught photographer and continues his learning as photography and software evolves.  Jim has been teaching photography classes, in his home, since 1981 and is always there for his current and former students whether to answer a ‘how to’ question or his willingness to tag-a-long on field trip to provide mentorship, and not to mention great company. Jim has had many of his images displayed in venues around the city such places as Miami University; Fairfield Art Center; Sharon Woods; also has selected images in Shutterbug and Photographer’s Edge magazines.  

Jim worked for 37 years at General Electric, and during that time spent 18 years as a professional wedding and portrait photographer, as well as serving as photographer for Lockland Schools.

Today, at the age of 85, he devotes his time to teaching and making pictures, sharing his knowledge with students so they can learn how to make pictures rather than just take pictures. He now has a collection of over 50,000 "favorite" images that he is cataloging and preserving, and continues to add to that growing number.

We’re all photographers, ranging from beginners to Novice.  We have started a manual, trying to capture everything Jim has taught us through the years.  

This is Jim Brockman!
