Who was Monte Zucker?

Monte Zucker was an American photographer. He specialized in wedding photography, entering it as a profession in 1947. In the 1970s he operated a studio in Switzerland. Later he lived in Florida.

He was Brides Magazine's Wedding Photographer of the Year for 1990 and United Nations Photographer of the Year for 2002, and one of Canon's "Explorers of Light". Additionally, he was a prolific author and teacher, with monthly columns in magazines such as Shutterbug.

Several manufacturers made equipment bearing his name, most notably Westcott's "Monte Reflector".

Unlike many photographers of his generation, he readily embraced new technology, particularly digital photography and Adobe Photoshop, featuring digital techniques in his columns right up until the end of his life, and relating them to earlier methods. He did a series of traveling workshops taught by himself and Eddie Tapp, who covered Photoshop techniques.
