Last year we lost the best editor this industry has ever known, Bill Hurter. Bill was instrumental in helping launch thousands of careers, special projects and concepts that simply made professional photography stronger. From incredible editorial to establishing the foundation for WPPI's print competition, Bill was always at the heart of imaging, publishing and support for working and aspiring professional photographers.
I couldn't be more proud to have worked with Bill, not to mention shared countless memory-making moments with him. Well, we want to have some fun and toast Bill's memory and the impact he had on so many of us.
Arlene Evans, George Varanakis and I are organizing a get together to honor Bill and his contribution at Batista's Hole in the Wall on Monday night, March 7 during WPPI. We've got a private room and will have time to tell a few classic stories and toast the guy who redefined passion for photography every minute of every day!
Batista's is a great little inexpensive restaurant across the street from Bally's. You don't need to bring a boatload of cash, just enough to cover whatever you order, and definitely bring your favorite Bill Hurter stories!

Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
