This is an digital infrared portrait of the photographer David Rubinger. I had the opportunity to photograph him at Palm Beach Photographic Workshop's FotoFusion an annual week long photo instruction event.
David was here for both the opening of his show at the at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre's Museum and Gallery "Eye of Israel" he was also being honored as the Photo Mentor of the year.
For over 60 years David has photographed Israel, from it's creation to today. He is of the nicest people I have ever met. As to getting him to sit for a "formal" photograph? Like herding cats....
Every time We would head to the studio someone would stop him and ask him a question and then he'd answer it and tell a story that you did not want to miss hearing.... Then you were late to your next class and you were walking into a room of students wondering where the teach was.
The image was recorded to a 128GB Lexar 1000 speed UDMA flash card.
