Our Leica Adventure
Today we kick off a multi-part series of articles and videos on Leica camera. A little over a year ago Leica and I had talks about doing a behind the scenes story on the Leica. As these discussions progressed we found Leica’s enthusiasm and support growing. They were excited to have Luminous Landscape visit and do a story on the many segments of their company and the Leica legacy.
Over the course of several months, we nailed down dates and an itinerary of what we were going to do. Leica started lining up the right department managers as well as product managers and our visit was scheduled. Chris and I would fly to Wetzlar, Germany to spend a week with Leica in early October.
This was an unprecedented opportunity for us and Leica. We were even going to get an opportunity to speak with Dr. Andreas Kaufman about his involvement and history with Leica.
