By the late 1920s, Johnston turned her focus to the systematic photographic documentation of historic buildings in the South. She traveled thousands of miles by car to create the Carnegie Survey of the Architecture of the South, which aimed to help preserve both vernacular and high style structures. Her vivid building portraits appeared in exhibitions and illustrated several major books. In the 1940s, she moved to New Orleans where she died in 1952

For more than 70 years Magnum has been creating the highest quality photographic content for an international client base of media, charities, publishers, brands and cultural institutions. The Magnum library is also a living archive updated regularly with new work from across the globe.

Magnum Photos reaches a global audience and has established itself as the authentic, storytelling photographic brand. It remains loyal to its original values of uncompromising excellence, truth, respect and independence.

The smartphone is one of the biggest revolutions in the era of information technology. Its built in camera offers several advantages. Dermatologists, who handle a specialty that is inherently visual, are most benefited by this handy technology. Here in this article, we attempt to provide an overview of smartphone photography in clinical dermatology in order to help the dermatologist to get the best out of the available camera for clinical imaging and storage.

Fast forward to today and the traditional photography jobs and equipment have faded, including photo processing workers, film lab technicians and photography equipment repairers, to be replaced by newer and more accessible digital technologies.

Companies within the photographic industry commonly provide still photography, digital photography and videography, including commercial, industrial, portrait, wedding and special events photography to name a few.

Within the UK industry, profitability varies greatly and this is dependent on the size of the photographic operator and the scale of their operations. An overall improvement in profitability is expected to register during the five years through 2018-19, reaching 11.2% of industry revenue.

Within the US market, photography ranks in the top 40% of the most profitable industries. 70.6% of businesses operating in the industry are profitable, with the average net income being 12.1% of revenues.

Unsurprisingly the highest concentration of photography businesses is in the capitals of both markets. In the UK, London is the most concentrated region as it is home to approximately 34.3% of industry establishments. In the US, New York is the largest market in terms of sales per establishment by state.

Since 2012, the number of photography businesses has grown steadily in both the US and UK markets, with the US seeing a much bigger increase in the number of larger firms (100+ employees). The UK market remains dominated by a larger number of small firms.

It is expected that revenue will increase at a relatively slow pace of 1.8% in 2018-19 as demand is hindered by economic pressures and inflation. However, the marriage rate is forecast to rise marginally and this will contribute positively to the demand for photography.

With relatively low barriers to entry, the majority of photography businesses are small businesses and owner-operators. A small home office will usually suffice for most but for those wanting to have their own studio, operating expenses will be more of a consideration. Additionally, the high cost of professional equipment may have previously been enough to put some off from entering the market, although with technological advances and reducing costs, this is set to change.

Despite the low barriers to entry for the industry, there is a high level of competition and this is expected to increase. Technological developments and the falling cost of equipment threatens industry performance by making it easier for consumers to take their own photographs instead of having to rely on industry operators, so establishing a good reputation and building a loyal customer base is critical for those wanting to succeed.

In both the US and UK, there is very little regulation of the photographic industry. In the UK, professional photographers do not need a licence to film or photograph in public places. The most major change to legislation affecting the industry was the introduction of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) across the EU in May 2018, which governs how a firm must deal with personal data of clients and aims to protect individuals within the European Union.

Overall demand for photography and particularly those with digital photography, editing and retouching skills has grown steadily over recent years. However one of the areas seeing a decline in demand is news photography, as social media and crowdsourcing give newspapers and publishers the opportunity to source images from the public rather than assigning the work to professionals.

Wedding photography is highly competitive but big business and photographers in this area should be highly skilled in being able to capture and tell a story with their photographs. They are also expected to be able to edit and retouch the photos, with a fast turnaround time. Customers expect the highest quality images from their special day to keep for a lifetime.

Requiring a high level of technical skill, commercial and industrial photographers need to be able to shoot the highest quality images, which could be featured anywhere from websites and social media right through to billboards and magazines. Those in the commercial field may choose to specialise in areas such as food, architecture, fashion, products or similar and may employ photo stylists to help arrange props and prepare sets.

Specialist photography: Photography that falls out of the above categories may include nature photography or art photography which again require that photographers have specific sets of skills to be able to capture images in the best light for their particular niche.

With both markets in the mature stage, technological changes have impacted the demand for traditional photography services such as film processing, allowing more innovative businesses to take advantage of the new opportunities created which in turn has stopped the industry entering decline.

Seasonal demand also has an impact with a much higher demand during the summer months, particularly for those specialising in weddings and outdoor events. There is less seasonal impact on commercial photography, particularly in fashion where campaigns change each season and there is a requirement for ongoing photography services.

The industry in the UK is expected to grow by 1.9% year on year for at least the next five years. By contrast and having grown 1% on average since 2012 in the US, the long-term trend for the photography industry is a decline of 1.9% on average over the next five years.

Technological advances will continue to impact the industry, providing new changes that allow customers to improve their own skills and perhaps helping to limit growth. Although this will also afford opportunities for new and existing photography firms to innovate.

In his book, The End of the Road: Vanishing Highway Architecture in America (1981), Margolies warned that modernism threatened to displace such popular establishments. In the mid-1970s, he began photographing vernacular architecture, taking extended road trips across the US. Initially, he knew little about photography, says Phil Patton in Roadside America (2010). "He stuck with his venerable Canon cameras," using "a basic, 50mm lens almost exclusively and ASA 25 film" to "obtain maximum color saturation."

According to Patton, Margolies normally rented a car and "embark[ed] in the late spring or after Labor Day, when the families and tourists were not crowding the roads." He packed "coolers for keeping the film cool" and "separate bags for [toiletries] and kitchen [supplies]." Most nights, he stayed in motels, which he documented in Home Away From Home: Motels in America (1995). He always brought "clothespins to secure the drapes" and "a Fred Flintstone night light on a 20-foot extension cord to illuminate unfamiliar bathrooms," says Patton. He preferred to photograph early mornings with cloudless, blue skies and would skip sites if the light wasn't right or if cars blocked the scene. As he stated in Roadside America, "I love the light at that time of day; it's like golden syrup. Everything is fresh and no one is there to bother you."

Margolies' photography and writing contributed to shaping the postmodernist movement. In 1978, Margolies was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. He was also supported by the Howard Gilman Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Wyeth Endowment for American Art. In 2003, he was named Josephine Patterson Albright Fellow by the Alicia Patterson Foundation. He died at age 76 in 2016.

Our collections exist to be used. When students work directly with primary source materials, historic photographs, and documents that are old or unique, they discover an excitement and passion not generated by textbooks.

Virtual reality, augmented reality, robotics, and autonomous driving, have recently attracted much attention from both academic and industrial communities, in which image-based camera localization is a key task. However, there has not been a complete review on image-based camera localization. It is urgent to map this topic to enable individuals enter the field quickly. In this paper, an overview of image-based camera localization is presented. A new and complete classification of image-based camera localization approaches is provided and the related techniques are introduced. Trends for future development are also discussed. This will be useful not only to researchers, but also to engineers and other individuals interested in this field.
