    Oh, he had a guitar in a portrait nearly as often as a camera. Great photographer, wonderful to work with.

    Oh yes, now that I think about it, he is into music. Glad you got to work with him.

    Only briefly over the internet for a month on an article for CiM. I'll never forget it though. I ask for a short bio and a pic and I imagine this great photographer sporting the latest gear of which I could only dream. What do I get?

    A Gibson IIRC.

    I wish. No, just the pic. Big old grin plastered from cheek to cheek.

    Les started out playing guitar in rock bands.

    http://www.lesmcleanphotography.com/about.php

    The photo on his website with the double neck guitar was taken (in the USA) by the late Lee Carmichael, an early and prolific apug contributor.

    For a few years before he retired, Les did a lot of photo work for Iron Maiden. (Warning: it's digital ...)

    Yeah, Matt; been there, done that.

    The MSAccess database is created and has a whopping 3 whole CDs entered. That's 37 records (one per track).

    Starting a simple catalog is easy - it's the data entry where the process breaks down ...

    Two new books just came into the collection: one a monograph, the other a biography.

    The Rollei Project, Jock Sturges, Duncan Meeder, 2013.

    Mathew Brady- Portraits of a Nation: A Biography, Robert Wilson, Bloomsbury Press, 2013.

    The Rollei Project was the result of a collaboration between Jock and the Rollei distributor for Europe/Asia. It was his first real foray into working in something other than 8x10. Looking at the book, he certainly didn't suffer any for switching to a smaller format, and if anything, it added a new layer of intimacy in the images by virtue of the lightness and speed of the camera. If you're a Jock Sturges fan, you'll love the book.
