Paul C. Buff Has Passed Away | brian rodgers jr. |Digital Art that rocks Blog |south bend commercial photography

In case you haven't heard the sad news, Paul C Buff has passed away. Paul was a true pioneer in the photographic community. His company makes (in my professional opinion) some of the best professional photographic lighting equipment available in the industry today.

I have a lot of respect for Paul. He's a man that has stayed true to his vision and craft. He has always done business as a factory direct company; meaning you could only by Paul C. Buff products directly through his company. No middleman. No other companies selling the his products at a higher price or muddying the water. He also kept his company relatively small; under 50 employees. This allows for better internal communication, and of course top notch customer service. 

Though I've never met him, in a way, I felt like I knew him. We had a lot in common. My condolences go out to his family, friends and colleagues at Paul C. Buff Inc. Paul will be missed. In the words of the film The Sandlot, "Heroes get remembered, but legends never die."
