Thank You, Larry!

Published: 02/04/2019


I knew this day was coming but no amount of time or planning could prepare me for what it would actually feel like. Since your official announcement on Friday, I've been trying to figure out how to adequately communicate what you and PFRE have meant to me over the years, but I just couldn't seem to find the words.

Reading all the comments of gratitude and praise that have poured in from *around the world* is a stark reminder of the impact you've had on tens of thousands of people. The sentiments expressed in the many comments made to your announcement, truly captured what I wanted to say regarding how important PFRE has been to me and my family.

What is nothing short of amazing to me, Larry, is that you have single-handedly created a resource that's impacted an entire industry, and helped create the opportunity for people around the world to pursue their love of photography.  More than this, thousands of people have used this wonderful thing called PFRE, to start a job that, for so many, turned into a career (and a life) they've dreamed of.

I know that I could never replace you in my current role of leading PFRE. My goal is to build on the incredible foundation you've already created, to ensure the continued success of the legacy you've built. I look forward to working hard to support and grow the community and help solidify PFRE as the most trusted voice in real estate and interiors photography. Even if I can help a fraction of the number of people that you have, I will consider it a huge success.

From the bottom of my heart, Larry ... Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

And as Scott Hargis mentioned in his comment ... We're not done with you yet. See you in Vegas!  ; )

  1. Larry,

    I have learned soo much from you following your PFRE and your on line books started my journey taking pictures for my wife (Realtor) though I have not been trying to start a RealEstate Photography business it has made me a better photography and I have learned soo much. I wish you well on your new ventures, Just know you have helped so many in this world and I will always be referencing your books. Hope to see some post of your new venture. Thanks Roy Huber

  2. ok, Brandon, I might have missed the Vegas thing, as I sometimes don't get to read all the blogs.
    what, when and where is the Vegas thing and exactly what is going on?
    I was planning an Oregon/Seattle trip this year and a stop in Vegas might be an option depending on the situation.
    I'm all ears so let me know
