Annual Evidence Photographers' School to Convene in Atlanta

In a four-day series of lectures and workshops, Evidence Photographers International Council will hold its 2005 School of Evidence Photography and Imaging in Atlanta, Georgia, November 3-6.

This year’s curriculum offers the opportunity for participants to learn a new technology that captures 360-degree panoramic images of crime scenes, study the intricacies of lighting and photographing ballistic wounds, and go away with a complementary kit to build a portal axial apparatus for shooting in low-contrast lighting.

Directing EPIC’s faculty and course of instruction is world-renowned forensic pathologist and evidence photographer Patrick Besant-Matthews, M.D., who also will teach two courses—Ballistic Wounds and Lighting Techniques, as well as Gadgets and Gizmos for Forensic Photographers.

Other highlights of the non-profit organization’s 2005 school include courses in Fingerprint Photography, Forensic Filters and Usage, Axial Lighting, Microscopic Evidence Documentation, A Brief History of Photographic Trickery, Digital Survival in a Forensic World, Using Digital for Evidence and Documentation, PhotoShop for Evidence Photographers, Personal Injury Photography, Business of Civil Evidence Photography, plus Video and the Court.

EPIC’s annual school attracts a wide range of students—from law enforcement officials to private investigators, from established experts in evidence photography to professional and even amateur photographers seeking to expand their earning potential. 

EPIC offers a certification program in evidence photography and imaging through its school, as well as continuing education credits required by many law enforcement agencies.
