Oh, my, yes...I've fallen in love! This time it was at PMA 2003. I can't say that it was a surprise, however. Canon had their new EOS 10D shipped to me a week in advance of the show. I barely had time...

Ever fall in love with a camera? Well, that's exactly what happened to me when I was handed a beta advance version of Canon's new D60 digital camera at the PMA show. I had experienced the D30 camera for the past year and had basically been reinventing myself almost on...

When I began photographing weddings professionally in 1947 I never would have believed that I would have a studio in Switzerland in the '70s.
