Back when Scott Ball got into photography, he could have used a place like the new San Antonio Photography Center, which he and his wife just opened.
“I didn’t have a place like this,” said Ball, 34, who has been photographing for 10 years and is a photo editor for the San Antonio Report. “I’m self-taught, I didn’t go to school for that. And it’s really hard to make those connections with photographers because it’s such a lonely exercise. It takes luck and a lot of knocking on doors and emails, and I kind of wanted to break down some of those barriers.
