...I'd heard it on the streets a while back but dismissed it as rumors but it was true, Mani retired from the photography business!
I'm actually bummed out about it. After hanging out with him last year at WPPI in Vegas I discovered that Mani is about the nicest guy you'll ever meet, add to that the fact that he's a portrait photographer with integrity (which believe it or not is a rarity these days) and that adds up to someone who'll be missed in the photo biz. Plus I think he's too young to be getting out!
We just wanted to congratulate him and wish him the best of luck in the future! At least I'll still be able to see him at Color Inc. and maybe WPPI next year.
Rock On Mani!
