Bob Wyer started his photography career in the late 1930s when a local newspaper asked him to start taking photographs. He quickly discovered his love for photography and over the next 40 years took over 150,000 photographs. With his wife, Billie Wyer, his successful photo studio took many portraits and photographed a wide range of community activities, including parades, crime and accident scenes and the everyday minutiae of life in the Catskills.. In the 1960s, Mrs. Wyer founded Bob Wyer Poscards. The Wyer’s spent much of that decade traveling around the country photographing college campuses. The Wyers retired in 1978.
