Another week has went by and before we move on for the week ahead we are going to recap news and all things about photography this week.

Just this week the whole world bids farewell to a creative actor, photographer and beloved Vulcan, Leonard Nimoy who passed away this February 27, 2015 at the age of 83. We featured him along with other celebrities who are equally passionate to the craft of photography.
