Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I'm on the hunt for pictures taken by a photographer called George Fisher who ran an agency called Associated Photo Services in Liverpool throughout the 1940s-60s. He did a lot of press and commercial photography. If anyone thinks they might have anything of his or has heard of him then I'd be really interested to hear from you.
Hi, Holly. There was an ad for APS in the British Journal of Photography, 12 May 1944, p.vii which I have copied here. This suggests it was up and running by that date. George Fisher gave a lecture on Press Photography to the Liverpool Amateur Photographic Association on 16 Dec 1948 and to the IBP in Jan 1949. He seems to have been involved with the IBP (now the BIPP - www.bipp.com) and with the 1952 Congress. He was a FIBP (Fellow) and exhibited in 1964, so some enquiries with the BIPP may throw some light on his activities.
A long-standing BIPP member has provided the following: George E Fisher became a member of the IBP in 1941, an associate three years later and received his fellowship in 1959. (The BIPP has been through a few name changes since its inception.
