Howard Schatz: Moving from the Operating Room to the Dark Room
AUGUST 16, 2016
It was supposed to be just a one year sabbatical for Howard Schatz to take a break from his work as a retina specialist and enjoy what had become a growing hobby of photography. More than two decades later Schatz said he misses some parts of practice but is greatly enjoying what has become a second career.
Schatz's career came full circle recently when he was one of the featured speakers at the annual meeting of the American Society of Retina Specialists in San Francisco. While he said some people were skeptical of the drastic career change Schatz said many of his closest friends are former colleagues who also enjoy photography in their spare time as well.
