Bruce Fraser: 1954-2006

1954-2006

Bruce Fraser was no ordinary imaging guru. He wrote many books on digital imaging and color management, including how-to books on digital imaging for the Real World Adobe Photoshop series. His influence left an indelible mark in the industry. He died December 16, 2006 after months of battling lung cancer. He was 52.

Fraser’s fellow photographer Jeff Schewe posted news of his death on PhotoshopNews.com, the blog of PixelGenius, a software and consulting company where Fraser was a partner.

“Bruce was a brilliant author and expert on color and more recently, digital capture and image sharpening. But, more importantly he was a genuinely good human being,” said Jeff.

Fraser was recently honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, which only last year inducted him into the Photoshop Hall of Fame.

“He almost single-handedly shaped the way we work with color, how we process RAW images in Photoshop, and even how we sharpen our photos,” NAPP president Scott Kelby said.

Fare you well, Bruce. Godspeed.
