Clarence "Kelly" Johnson was the lead engineer at Lockheed's famed "Skunk Works." Johnson, amongst other accomplishments, led Lockheed's development of the SR-71 Blackbird. He was also, at the request of the CIA, one of those responsible for construction of the airbase at Groom Lake, Nevada, later known as Area 51.

One of Lockheed's most famous aircraft, the U2, was flight tested at that facility. Interestingly, I used to work for a man who was a U2 test pilot. But that's another story for another time.

Johnson's most enduring legacy, in spite of his many aeronautical accomplishments, might be the acronym and phrase he coined: KISS, or "Keep it simple stupid." READ MORE?

Another part of Kelly Johnson's legacy; one that in my opinion, is more lasting, is that he is the father of modern project management.

Kelly carried his KISS method forward into exceptionally complex projects by breaking the projects down into simpler, more manageable components. We can carry that same philosophy into our photography.

As a project manager for my day job, I am a great believer in planning your work and working your plan. By pre-planning as much as possible (equipment, models, concept, lighting, etc.) I find it freeing creatively, because these are all things I DON'T have to worry about when the shoot starts. And when Murphy inevitably shows up on set, (or project for that matter) I can respond quickly, decisively and correctly.

I worked for Lear for many years. As part of my job, I spent a fair amount of time at Lockheed, in Burbank, working with their A/V production department. Johnson was legendary! Yes, including his PM skills. My boss, for some of those years, was a former U2 test pilot. He spoke of Johnson with much reverence and he was the sort of guy who didn't show much reverence for too many people.
