Photography, photoshop, and the philosophy of taking pictures by photographer Bill Wadman, co-host of On Taking Pictures.

Hero - Tony Vaccaro

Today I had lunch with photographer Tony Vaccaro.  Tony's one of those monster old-timers who's seen it all.  Best known perhaps for his photographs as a GI in WWII, he has shot portraits of almost everyone you can imagine.  JFK, Grace Kelly, Enzo Ferrari, Eleanor Roosevelt, Georgia O'Keeffe, and pretty much everyone else you can imagine for magazines like LIFE and LOOK.  Over lunch I got to hear stories about him and Picasso, the Shah of Iran, and Charlie Chaplin just to name a few.  It was great.
I also took the opportunity to shoot a few shots of the master myself.
