Bruce Fraser - My Heroes (cont.)

"Bruce Fraser, noted author, lecturer and “color geek”, was diagnosed several months ago with terminal lung cancer.

At that time Bruce was about to start a course of chemotherapy that offered an optimistic prognosis. Unfortunately, the treatment has not been successful and the cancer has since progressed. Bruce is now severely ill and it is the opinion of Bruce, his wife Angela and the doctors, that he now probably has but a very short time left. He is being cared for at home by Angela and support nursing staff.

For those who don’t know him, Bruce Fraser is an internationally well known author, consultant and speaker on the topics of digital imaging and color reproduction. In addition to authoring the highly successful Real World Camera Raw with Adobe Photoshop CS2, he has been a contributing editor for Macworld magazine and co-author of the best-selling books Real World Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Real World Color Management, Second Edition, and the recently released Real World Image Sharpening. Bruce has also penned numerous articles, most recently for Bruce is a partner in PixelGenius, LLC. where he designed PhotoKit Sharpener.

Bruce is a humble and gentle man of rare genius and dry humor who over the years has added immensely to the collective knowledge of the digital imaging industry." To read more of this PhotoshopNews story click here.

I met Bruce several years ago when I participated in his Color Management Masters Class in Las Vegas. I have never learned more in any class.

Thank you for your encouragement and kind words and the incredibly useful information you shared. You will be in my prayers; Godspeed Bruce.
