Burke Seim

“State of the Camera Industry”
Monday – September 10, 2018 7-9pm
Talbot Community Center, Wye Oak Room

Service Photo has been working closely with photographers since 1948.  Burke Seim purchased the business in 1991 and has done whatever it takes to survive in the ever-changing world of photography & retail in those 27+ years.   Service Photo ( is now Maryland’s ONLY specialty camera dealer, providing photographers throughout the region with all types of new & used products, camera gear rentals, and equipment repairs.      

Burke will discuss & demonstrate many new photography products being introduced this Fall.  And while he’ll talk plenty about the gear that helps photographers realize their visions, he’ll also talk about the changes seen over the last 30 years in the photo industry, and today’s ultra-competitive internet-based business climate as it relates to all types of photo gear.  Burke will explain how the photography industry works, and help photographers understand the industry that helps fuel their passion. His insights will help photographers find the best products for their needs, at the lowest prices available, while avoiding many common pitfalls of buying in an internet world.   

Bring your questions about cameras, lenses, accessories, warranties, USA vs. import items, internet rumors, internet scams, internet good guys, you name it!  Ask anything photo related, and Burke will give you an honest, candid response – just like he’s done for the last 30 years.



Visitors are welcome to attend the seminar.
