While on the road during the workshop in Las Vegas, I learned that photographer and friend Bob Warren from the PA/NJ area (not Bob Warren from Houston) passed away due to heart transplant complications after the successful surgery three weeks ago.

For those that new Bob, a military veteran, you knew he attended almost every Philadelphia/Coatesville workshop over the past years and even attended the Virgin Islands workshop twice. If fact he loved the "VI" so well he went back on his own for more photography. Bob's heart condition was well known to his friends, he always talked about it and we all prayed for him. Bob knew the transplant had to be done, but always felt he would never survive it and unfortunately Bob was correct.

Bob called me a little over a month ago as he would often to update me. He was excited about being on the transplant list and that his chances were great on the list, but also felt he would not make it, though with his heart condition, he knew he had no choice. Earlier in the year he paid for a Virgin Islands workshop and told me if he didn't make it, to give the slot to "Bela" his close friend and I will honor that wish. Bela Fodrovics is not only a great individual who I met at my Philly workshop, but Bob also hooked me up with Bela for assisting me in post-production of my images for my third book when I was under a deadline crunch. Bela and Bob met at one of my previous workshops years ago and became great friends.

Bob loved photography, loved spreading the gospel of photography and loved helping models including helping them when they were in need. He once hired me for personal instruction to help a model not only earn some money, but to get published. She got published. He always took care of the model releases too, sometimes he'd go as far as flying in models to my Atlanta and other workshops that he was attending, just so the model could make money that weekend to pay her bills. He was proud of that. He was a past owner of a camera store and understood the power of photography and always told me it was the camera that gave him hope and made him feel better when his heart medications would make him feel bad.

Bob will be missed. God bless him, his family and friends. The world has lost a great man, photographer and military veteran. Please remember him in your hearts, especially those that met him at my workshops. Rolando

This is definately sad news, please send my condolences to the family. I think the best tribute we can offer to his memory is to carry on his legacy of helping others in the photographic community.

I know that I am one with beauty, And that my comrades are one. Let our souls be mountains, Let our spirtis be stars, Let our hearts be worlds.
