Two years ago I sat in a hospital room in Canada and watched one of my dearest if not best friends pass away, Michael Reichmann. Today I sit in another hospital room in Florida holding my mother’s hand on what most likely will be her last day. It’s not easy and I am sure many have had to go through the same thing. What matter most is memories and while sadness is a big part, it is the joy or remembering our moms, dads and especially our friends for all the good times we had that keeps them alive and with us forever. Keeping those memories alive is so important.
On this day I ask that you remember Michael as without him this site would not be here today. I ask that you visit the Founders Page and Missing Our Friend to remember how Michael affected us all. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of Michael. Every time I am shooting and have great light I wave to the sky and thank Michael. And, maybe you’d enjoy remembering Michael at his best the way I always remember him with a great sense of humor and an unbelievable laugh as in Our Blooper Reel
Thank You, Michael, for all you did for all of us and how you helped shape and change the world of photography.
