To call Gary Fong a visionary would be an understatement. Photographer of unique personalities such as Sylvester Stallone, Paul McCartney, and Bruce Lee, Gary Fong went on to revolutionize the wedding photography industry using a technique he called ‘story-booking.’ No longer would wedding photography be the stagnant, boring pictures of posed couples they’ve always been, Fong retold the story of that magic day, using only photography as his device. Successful, but never satisfied, Fong sought to revolutionize the photographic equipment industry as well and introduced a flash diffuser system of his own design, quickly becoming the industry standard in portable flash diffusion. Now with the success of his memoirs ‘The Accidental Millionaire’ Gary Fong brings his wisdom, humour, and teachings to the Exposure stage in hopes that you will take away some inspiration and courage to push your ideas further than ever before.
