MPB, the world’s largest resale platform for digital photography and filmmaking kit, today announced the five inductees to the Photo and Video Kit Hall of Fame inaugural Class of 2020.

The inductees were chosen by photographers, filmmakers and creatives from 157 countries who cast a total of 40,985 votes during the six-week voting period. Twenty-five nominees across the five categories appeared on the ballot, which was selected by the camera experts at MPB.

Photography is my passion and has been for 50 plus years. My career in photography has allowed me to travel the world, meet some of the most interesting people on the planet and see things I could never have dreamed of. My goal is to share the passion of picture taking through photographs and teaching with as many people as I can, hoping it brings them as much joy and happiness as it has me. I do this through photoPXL.com, this site, as well as Rockhopper Workshops, and other projects, as well as teaching as Artist In Residence at the Indianapolis Art Center.
