This past Friday the photography world lost a passionate photographer, and I lost a good friend. Joe Gambardella. I first met Joe last year when he was attending Bryan Peterson’s workshop and I was assisting Bryan. I really liked Joe and had a blast shooting with him.
Ironically, this year as Bryan and I were doing the meet and greet for his 2012 workshop in Seattle, Bryan informed me of the tragic news. I was shocked and very bummed out about this news.
My heart goes out to his with BethAnn and his family. Joe was a great guy and a photographer who was bursting with energy, enthusiasm and ideas. He will be sorely missed!
You can see our shots in the article entitled “Travel Photography: Photographing People At Night In New York City (Manhattan)”. Joe loved this shoot and was smiling ear to ear when we finished.
