The purpose of this study was to determine what photographic training is needed by the instructional media specialist in high schools of the State of Washington. In order to make such determination, both the need and the photographic training had to be clarified. This investigation attempted to make such clarifications by (1) specifying school personnel who provide photographic services to high schools in the State of Washington; (2) specifying the source, extent and adequacy of training of such personnel in photography; (3) specifying present utilization of photography by high schools in the State of Washington; and (4) ascertaining what the instructional media specialist considered was his need for photographic training.
