Loyd Heath Photography

    Loyd Heath’s interest in photography began in 1945 when he was a student at Riverside High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was struggling in his chemistry class and since his teacher was the faculty adviser to the “camera club,” he joined the club as a strategic move; he passed chemistry and he gained a lifelong interest in photography.

    Loyd has taken many courses and workshops in photography since that time, he has participated in many photo shows, and his photos have been widely published. His primary career however was in accounting. He was a Professor of Accounting and Associate Dean at the University of Washington’s Foster School of Business in Seattle for 36 years. He currently holds the title of Professor Emeritus of Accounting.

    Since retiring from the University in 1998 Loyd has devoted full time to photography. He is best known for his University of Washington campus photos, his totem pole photos, and his photos from two outdoor living history museums that portray life in the 19th century: Old World Wisconsin in Eagle, WI, (http://oldworldwisconsin.wisconsinhistory.org/) and Genesee Country Village in Mumford, NY (https://www.gcv.org/Plan-Your-Visit). He travels to these museums to photograph several times each year. He was judge of the Old World Wisconsin photo contest from 2002 through 2013.
