->> A great photographer and a better guy. Years ago I was a staff photographer for a NYC politician ken was brought in to do campaign stuff. AS if I had done it being on the city payroll it might've looked bad, we were shooting the sam eevent and I was a kid Ken, turns to me after about 15 minutes and says why am I here when they have you. It was a
totally out of the blue and unexpected thing to say. I was a no name a kid and Ken just made me feel great. I will never forget that. this was un known to him one of my heros talking to me, if you do not know Ken's work go and google him.

Ken Regan stories...

1) There were many pictures of the Kennedy family with a "Ken Regan/Camera 5" credit but one time Ted Kennedy grabbed Ken's camera and took a few pictures of Ken. He displayed a print of that image with the credit "Edward Kennedy/Camera 5".

2) Someone once told me that Ken's idea of a good business lunch was to be in a limo, going from one assignment to another, while on the phone arranging a third gig, eating a sandwich...

3) Being in Newsweek's office one day to see/hear the photo editor going nuts on the phone. A full blown screaming fit. It turns out that Ken had, for the Lake Placid Olympics, had every piece of Nikon gear he owned winterized and then de-winterized by NPS. For most photographers that wouldn't be much of a problem but Ken Regan owned at least two of everything Nikon made and multiples when it came to cameras and such. The bill came to over $80K (more than $200K in today's dollars).
Newsweek paid the bill of course, the photos were excellent.
