Annual evidence photographer’s training conference (EPIC School)
will be held in Nashville, Tennessee: January 10-12, 2010

The Evidence Photographers Inter-national Council (EPIC) annual educational conference—EPIC School—will be held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee January 10-12. Focused on helping evidence photographers gain the latest skills they need for a successful, professional career, EPIC School offers education from the basics of evidence photography to in-depth, hands-on workshops, and certification opportunities.

“From insurance companies to law-enforcement agencies, the market for evidence photography is diverse, if photographers have the knowledge and skills required,” said Claire White, EPIC association manager.

This educational event focuses on making today’s evidence photographers better equipped and ready for the various situations they face. With topics that run the gamut from photographing latent fingerprints, lighting crime-scene photographs, testifying in court, and processing and managing files, EPIC School aims to help all industry photographers—new and advanced.

In addition, the Evidence Photo-grapher Certification will be offered at EPIC School. The material for this unique certification will be presented through hands-on education with a well-respected evidence photography professional, followed by exams and—later—an image submission.

EPIC School brings its extensive offerings together for the third year with Imaging USA, the photo event by the Alliance of Visual Artists (AVA) that drew almost 8,000 attendees last year. By joining forces with Imaging USA, attendees of EPIC School will have access to the industry’s most diverse forum for photographic education. And to keep the structure convenient for attendees, all programming will be held at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center.

Forensic Podiatry (Part Two of Two)

THE DISCIPLINE of forensic podiatry—or, in other words, the examination of pedal evidence—has progressed significantly over the past ten years. It is no longer a question of “What can you do with a footprint?” but rather, “Who can we use to evaluate the footprint?” Cases involving pedal evidence, especially bloody footprints and issues of determining shoe sizing or fit issues compared to questioned footwear, have become more common over the past two or three years.
