The Shreveport Photographic Society
Bob Dial, Founding Member 1956
Many thanks to Bob for providing us with this image of him and his tastefully done 16 x 20 award winning figure study "Torso In High Key" shown with the trophies it won, or helpd to win, for Total Points (then equivalent to photographer of the year) and as print of the year; it also won an honorable mention at their first PSA Salon.
Only a short time following the inception of SPS Bob Dial and T. C. Smith were asked to form a Shreveport Chapter of the Professional Photographers of America, which they did. Bob has the plaque mounted charter for Chapter 9 dated August 4, 1962 hanging on his computer room wall; to be one of the first 10 is tall country, still.
