COVID-19 has already had a significant impact on all aspects of the photography business. Photographers have had to cancel travel and workshops. Jobs have been canceled. The distributors and manufacturers of the photographic goods and services we can’t live without have also taken it on the chin. They, and we, are creative and resilient.
We reached out to three of the companies that have been supporters of NANPA and some of NANPA’s professional members. Their stories will appear during the coming weeks. Yesterday, we reported on how Tamron has been affected and what they’re doing in response. Today, we look at Hunt’s Photo and Video.
From the Editor: Membership organizations like NANPA can keep the costs of membership and conference registration low and to develop new resources thanks to the support of companies like Hunt’s Photo and Video. If you’ve been to one of NANPA’s Nature Photography Summits or Celebrations, you probably have met Gary Farber of Hunt’s Photo and Video. Hunt’s and Gary have been long-time NANPA sponsors, including at this year’s Nature Photography Summit in Las Vegas.
Hunt’s has been a partner with NANPA since 1999. When Gary Farber first joined, he was only 22 years old. During his years as an active NANPA member, he has gotten to know and befriend many other members and built many long-lasting relationships. He’s been involved with both the high school and college program and continues to stay in touch with many of the people who participated in each.
