Roger H. Katz Photographic Archive
(1947 – 2013)
Roger enjoyed capturing portraits of people that depicted them in their natural disposition and exhibited their true essence. He would share his love and knowledge for photography with anyone who would listen and served as a mentor to many.
Roger was born in Detroit, Mich., on Aug. 15, 1947, to Edward and Genevieve (Kocot) Katz. He was raised and educated in the Detroit area and after his father gave him his first camera, he made his own dark room in the basement of this parents’ house, where he honed his skills. Katz moved to Vermont in the ‘60s to attend Marlboro College, where he majored in physiology and liberal arts and met friend Bob Johnson, whom he would later work for at Omega Optical, Inc. He once owned two photography shops — Photo 101 and Elliott Street Camera — and operated Black Mountain Studios up until his death on April 1, 2013.
