A Personal Note of Thanks–
“First and foremost I wish to thank the following people: David Bailey, Mike Borum, Mark Boughton, Richard Collier, Michael Dean, Claude Peschel Dutombe, John Guider, James Haefner, Robin Hood, Ted Horowitz, Gary Layda, Bill Lokey, David Llewellyn, Tom McCarthy, Tim Olive, Norm Parker, Raymond Princehorn, Mike Rutherford, Bob Schatz, John Walker and Charley Westerman.
During my professional years as an art director, I worked with these extremely talented professional photographers. I think of them often and try to follow through with what I have learned from them. The only one that wasn’t a professional was my father, Raymond Princehorn. In the basement of our home when I was seven years old, he introduced me to the smells of photo developer and hypo - as well as the love of capturing a moment in time - by giving me a Brownie Holiday Camera. That very camera has a prominent place in my studio today.
Thank you, Dad. Thank you, guys. I value your friendship and hope I make you proud.”
