Legend, Teacher, Mentor / by Zack Smith

Herman Leonard passed this weekend. Do yourself a favor and visit his images.

I had the privilege to work with Herman as his assistant on many different shoots. The years i was assisting him i was soaking in everything i could. He was a master photographer, and printer. Above all he loved what he did. He loved the people he photographed, and his images show that. He taught me to slow down, and engage the present, and engage the art.

You will be missed Herman, thanks for leaving us so many wonderful moments.
