Don Burrell - The First In Our New Masters Series
by Kevin Raber
Don Burrell of Crown Point, IN
Fifty Plus Years In The Photography Industry
Things are getting very exciting at Luminous-Landscape. We have a lot of projects in the works. In addition to the workshops that we are announcing and running, we have been writing articles and producing a number of new and different videos.
As our industry moves rapidly to a total digital environment we leave behind our heritage of film and analog photography. As part of a number of new video series we proudly offer up the first of a series of videos where we sit down and talk with The Masters. These are the men and women who have been in this industry and watched it change - and who have changed with it. They have fascinating stories to tell and exceptional insight gained through their journeys.
Today we invite you to join Kevin Raber, Luminous-Landscape’s publisher and CEO as he sits down with Don Burrell of Crown Point, Indiana. Don is a man of inexhaustible energy who at his age is still going with energy that any one of us wish we could have. His passion for photography and the people that surround him is a good part of his story. This Video is available HERE for purchase or as part of the annual subscription.
We’ll learn how Don got involved in photography back in the 4x5 Speed Graphic days and how he started a lab business in his basement that would eventually grow to be one of the largest networks of color labs in America or even the world. He was a pioneer in color photography and saw the future. He then saw the coming of digital before many others. His story is fascinating.
This video is available for $10.00 from our video store or as part of our annual subscriber content. You could spend a lot more to learn the lessons of business and life that you will get from Don in this video. Please enjoy!
We have more interviews and video coming so keep checking back.
