Photograph article dated February 28, 1963 reads, "A good picture is a portrait of a thought. A photographer must show what a person is thinking for his picture to be meaningful. This is the philosophy with which 38 photographers - most of them professional - are working in a photography class at Valley College, Van Nuys. Their instructor is Earl Theisen, Sherman Oaks, senior photographer for Look magazine." Photograph caption reads, "Class of professional photographers focus their camera eyes on model Linda Bower. Instructor Earl Theisen gives pointers on magazine photography technique to class at Valley College."; See image #00126557 for additional photo in this series.
