Michael Reichmann, Luminous Landscape Founder, Is Dead At 71 Share This on LinkedIn   Share This on Google   Tweet This   Forward This

Luminous Landscape CEO Kevin Raber has announced the death at 71 of Luminous Landscape Founder Michael Reichman. Reichmann, who had been battling cancer, passed away May 18 surrounded by family and friends.

In addition to the well-respected Web site, Reichmann also established the Luminous Endowment for Photographers. The Endowment has provided financial assistance through grants to deserving international photographers for specific projects since 2014.

In his post It's A Sad Day For Luminous-Landscape, Raber said:

If you wish to make a donation in his memory then please do so at the Endowment site. A small private service of close friends and family will be held late next week. Chris [Sanderson] and I plan to hold a Memorial for the photographic community in honor of Michael and we will announce those plans here in the future.

For now, please remember Michael for his spirit and passion and as a man with a big heart, a huge smile and an amazing sense of humor. I'll leave you with the words that many of us heard time and time again; it kind of became his trademark saying, "There is no shot here."

Please remember Michael the next time you aim your camera at a magnificent landscape and click the shutter. I know each time I do I'll be saying, "This one is for you Michael." Rest assured he would make sure all of us are blessed with good light and great photos.

The post closes with a short video blooper and an album of images of Reichmann.

Update (20 May): Michael Johnston's Michael Reichmann R.I.P. has inspired a wealth of tributes in the comments section.
