This week's Throwback Thursday image is like going through a high school yearbook, because it brings back so many memories and stories.
The year is 1988, about a year after I started as the new president of Hasselblad USA. The sales force was in town for a meeting and I wanted a group shot of the entire team. It might look like just another company shot of employees, but this group was my introduction into professional photography and they were amazing to work with. As sappy as it sounds, it really was a family, with some very big personalities and the stories to go with each one.
I was with Hasselblad for twelve wonderful years, leaving for an Internet offer that at the time I couldn't refuse. It was an amazing group of people and I'll close with one more memory-maker.
My point is the same with every Throwback Thursday post. Take the time to track down your old photographs, take good care of them and on a regular basis, pull one out and just enjoy the memories. When you're done, think about what you do for a living and what it means for your clients.
You guys are the true magicians of the world, helping people every day capture and preserve moments out of time and cherish them for the rest of their lives and future generations. It's a big responsibility and deserves the very best images you can capture.
Happy Throwback Thursday - time to help create some new Throwback Thursday images for the future!
