Here's a blast from the past and one of the best spoof videos ever done, thanks to the talent of Ron Dawson and Joe Photo. Here's the scenario...
Joe Photo and Michele Celentano hosted WPPI's Awards Night for several years. Then, in 2007, I had an idea and decided we'd mix it up a little. I was president of Rangefinder/WPPI and thought it was a great idea for Tony Corbell and me to host the event. (By the way, we didn't do half as good as Joe and Michele did!)
Well, Ron Dawson, put together this spoof video, which was the first in the series. Joe is one of the most talented photographers in our industry, but his skill set pales in comparison to his role as "Disgruntled Joe".
We all know the expression goes, "you can never go back," but it sure is fun to take the walk down memory lane. Today is Joe's Birthday and it just seemed like the perfect time to pull this video out of storage!
Happy Birthday Joe and a big thanks to Ron Dawson!
