My Photographs at Apple, May, 1977
On a Saturday in early May, 1977, I visited Apple and photographed Steve Jobs, Bill Fernandez, Mike Scott, and a group of interested prospective dealers and buyers as they watched a demo on an Apple II prototype by Steve. All photos are black & white, taken on Kodak Tri-X Pan, a grainy film popular in 1977.

I have combined elements from four photos of the Demo Series into a single photo assemblage. This reveals several interesting elements -- from the screen contents of the demo to the rejected Apple II wedge case design above the monitor, to the photo of the apple used in the original Apple II introduction ad at the extreme right of the shot. In the foreground, the man is reading the Apple II introduction brochure, and one of the other men has an Apple II price list in his hand. I find the audience reactions interesting, too. And you'll note that the Apple II Steve is using has no cooling slots -- it's a prototype case.
Limited Edition prints measuring approximately 13.5 x 5" are available for $90 ea. Edition limited to 50 prints.
All prints will be signed by the photographer and numbered.
Two of these photos have long been on my 'History' page, and one of these photos appeared without permission or attribution in the PBS show, "Triumph of the Nerds". So you understand my protectiveness in stamping these sample images. I license these images for print and electronic media use. They can be used to give a good historical context to the evolution of Apple, especially in the days before the company, and Jobs himself, became a media darling.

I was at Apple because I was managing the Apple account at Regis McKenna Advertising. We had just launched the Apple II at the West Coast Computer Faire a few weeks before. We knew Apple was going to be a very big, successful company.
