Resource, a quarterly magazine for professionals in photography and video, has featured a full-page interview with me about my experiences assisting Richard Avedon in its current (Winter 2013) issue.
The magazine is available in both print and digital forms via its website, www.resourcemagonline.com.
These images are from the print edition. The digital edition contains far more text and photos. Both editions summarize Avedon's long career, from 1952 until 2004, as seen by eleven of his top assistants.
The large photo under my name above was taken by me in October 1959 at the CBS TV studios in New York, showing (left-right) his manager Frank Finnochio, model Susy Parker, and Avedon himself, who was directing the show. The small picture shows me on a camera crane.
Again, that website is www.resourcemagonline.com. Check it out!

I'd like to thank the staff at Resource Magazine for putting all this together, in particular Ediror-in-Chief Aurdlie Jezequel and author Charlie Fish, who wrote it. The other Avedon assistants featured (and their years with Avedon) are Alen MacWeeney (1961-62), Nicholas Vreeland (1969 and 1971-74), Jeff Niki (1972-77), Maynard Switzer (1972-73), Douglas Mott (1992-94), Jonathan Mannion (1993-94), James Macari (1997-98), Sebastian Kim (1996-2000), Daymion Mardel (1999-2004), and Dirk Kikstra (1999-2004).
