A Mentor and a Friend

As I head into the photo conference season it is done so with a heavy heart. One of the greatest photographers and educators to have ever graced the photography industry has passed away on Thursday. Monte Zucker will forever be remembered not only for his knowledge on posing and lighting, but more for his willingness to share his knowledge with you like you were his close personal friend no matter who you are. He would take the time to personally respond to e-mails and phone calls instead of acting like the celebrity that he was. What I learned most from Monte was how to treat people and build relationships. I will be headed to Vegas next week for the WPPI conference that Monte was supposed to be a part of. There will definitely be a void there without him.
