Gary Fong™ has long been an established authority in Professional Photography. Featured on the worldwide simulcast, "Weddings 2000" as one of the "Top Ten Wedding Photographers In The World", Gary photographed many celebrities, famous figures and U.S. Presidents.
Gary founded the digital lab at "Pictage.com" which became the largest professional online digital lab in the United States. Starting from a handful of employees, it grew to 170 employees and sold to Apax, Inc. for $35 million dollars. Gary's experience as a lab professional showed a glaring danger in digital photography - blown out flash. Gary invented the "Gary Fong Lightsphere Diffuser™" which became the standard for flash diffusers worldwide. The Lightsphere is a fixture for professional photographers everywhere, from official photographers to the U.S. President (two administrations), and even on NASA missions.
In 2014, Gary recognized the engineering breakthroughs made by little-known camera manufacturer, SONY, and began blogging and doing YouTube videos on how to "Unleash The Power" of Sony cameras. Starting when Sony had a 3% market share, he told management that they would become the number one brand in photography within a few years. He was right, and continues to train professional photographers on Sony cameras through his "Unleash The Power" series. Gary has nearly 150,000 YouTube followers.
In 2016, Gary had an idea for a story and wrote a spec screenplay for a feature film. That screenplay, "Noel's Ark" got Gary discovered in Hollywood, by highly respected Entertainment Attorney Shelley Surpin and Talent Agent Matt Leipzig of Original Artists.
Gary currently has a feature film in development with producers at Paramount Pictures. but remains dedicated to the magic, power and purpose of quality photography.
