For documentation, investigation and training purposes, volunteer and professional fire departments often employ photographers to record the visual details of a fire scene. Larry Browne, a volunteer with Doylestown Fire Company No. 1, has been “shooting fire” for nearly three decades. He is also a former Pennsylvania state fire instructor and photojournalist, and teaches classes in fire scene photography at the Bucks County Public Safety Training Center. Join Larry for an interesting visual exploration of the role of fire scene photography from his own unique perspective. Included in museum admission (free for members).
