ReturnFrederick William Quandt

Frederick William Quandt, Jr. was already an experienced photographer at the start of World War II. He had assisted on a photo mural at San Francisco’s  Golden Gate International Exposition in 1939 and had worked in commercial, press and publicity photography. He honed his skills as a photographer in the Army Air Corps doing ground and aerial photography, in a combat camera unit, producing a technicolor Air movie, and working on experimental color and high speed photography. He contributed photographs to such military publications as Yank and Stars and Stripes. After the war Quandt enrolled in the photography program at the California School of Fine Arts. Already an accomplished technician from his years of Army Air Corps experience, Quandt soon rose from student to teacher. Hired in the summer of 1947 to replace Ansel Adams as the program’s technical instructor,  he taught “everything from the zone system to photograms.”

It would prove an enduring and productive appointment, for Quandt continued to teach photography at CSFA until 1959.
