Sad news in the mining/industrial industry with the loss of Bob Lipic. (President of MTI). I had the pleasure of meeting him once while I photographed for MTI. First impressions are everything and his impression left me thinking “What a great guy.” He was very courteous, talkative and helpful. He wanted to know all about my photography asking questions about my lighting and equipment. He even commented on my jacket I was wearing as it had my logo on it. I remember walking away from that shoot happier than when I went into it (and I am normally a VERY happy guy). I wished I got to photograph more of him in the industry. RIP Bob.
