Mark Wallace is a legend in the world of photography. About 8 months ago, he sold his successful photography studio in Arizona so he could travel and photograph the world. At the same time, he has been feeding a steady stream of instructional videos to AdoramaTV, where I was the editor for 8 years. We became friends there.
A couple of months ago, the weight of Mark's Canon DSLR system was getting to be too great a burden, so he switched to a Leica M rangefinder camera. In a video he just posted for AdoramaTV he compares the two systems and ends it by referring to a series of articles written by Yours Truly. Even better: at the 11 minute mark in the video below, which he posted tonight, Mark paid me the ultimate compliment, calling me a "spectacular photographer." I'm flattered and humbled, since Mark is both a spectacular photographer and an amazing teacher. I also had no idea he was going to say that.
