A Photographic Legend is Gone.......

After a long and hard fought battle with Cancer, Monte Zucker, the mentor to photographers around the world and a legend in the photo industry passed away in Florida on March 15th.He leaves a legacy of love and inspiration to all who knew him, knew of him and were touched by his quick wit, never ending enthusiasm, infectious smile and the ability to make the complicated simple and the simple, even easier and photography the greatest of pursuits.The world, not only the world of photography is a much better place because of Monte. He gave it all to photography, asking only that everyone that he touched go out and have fun and make better pictures because of him. And photographers around the world, both professional and enthusiast a like have.Monte's legacy continues through us all. Whether we know it not, there's a little bit of Monte in all of us and in every picture we take. Whether we knew him by attending his classes, participating in the Monte Zucker forum, reading his books and articles in the major photo magazines, watching his DVD's or hearing him during his visits on Photo Talk Radio, we've all been affected by him.There's also a more direct way you can honor Monte the mentor, teacher and humanitarian. Recently he started The Zucker Institute for Photographic Inspiration with the goal of helping young at-risk children get involved with photography by helping direct their energies toward photography as a hobby that can grow into a photo career. Learn more about "ZIPI" as it is known and how you can help at Take moment to honor Monte, say a prayer for him and his family, and know that he lives on in all of us, and hen go out and be excited about photography and make better pictures, he'd like that.
