Wandering through my archives, I ran across this shot of Tony Corbell. I think it was taken by Jim Morton and I think it was around 2004. It's one of my favorite shots of my good buddy, but there's more to this throwback image.
I'm not sure there's anybody who loves photography and this industry more than Tony. He's an educator, photographer, artist, writer and simply the industry's biggest cheerleader. It's rare he'll say "no" to anybody for anything unless his calendar is simply full.
He's passionate about technology, quality, lighting and everything else under the imaging umbrella. He loves to help photographers raise the bar on literally everything they do. Working with Tony for many years at Hasselblad and having him as a good friend for the last 26 years has, without question, enriched my life.
A few weeks ago Rich Harrington and I had Tony on Mind Your Own Business and although there are some audio problems on and off throughout this recording, listen to some of Tony's comments. It was a great webcast, even with the technical challenges.
