OSSC Councilor (2001-2003)

-Herb Carlbom-

 

    Herb Carlbom is President of CK Optical Co., Inc., in Redondo Beach, California.  After a start as a cameraman and studying photography at Trade Tech and Art Center, Herb moved into photographic special effects.  He observed that there was a need for a better way to prepare movie title art for Panavision output.  While developing a lens to handle this, he discovered a greater need for the same basic lens by the newspaper industry.  His company produced and sold their first lens in 1968, and a couple of thousand worldwide since.  They have an in-house, long-radius cylinder lab (now for sale as their market has been satisfied).  Herb was introduced to the OSSC by Steven Grijalva about 2 years ago.  Until then he didn't know it existed.  “Now that I've been exposed to all of you at OSSC, I realize what I've missed over the past 30 years.  My strong point in my own business has been sales, and I would like to work helping to promote OSSC.”
