Who is Gary Fong?

The Accidental Millionaire - By Gary FongGary FongIn The Accidental Millionaire, photographer, entrepreneur and inventor Gary Fong, turns traditional self-help upside down, his life story a delightfully refreshing testimonial to the power in all of us to harness our fate by not allowing ourselves to be so driven, that we lose the divine clumsiness necessary to stumble into hidden opportunity.

In The Accidental Millionaire, Fong recounts with self-deprecation humor and grace the unexpected trajectory of his life and career: launching his first photography studio out of his parents’ back bedroom that was soon earning hundreds of thousands of dollars annually; the mistake that becomes a bonaza when he buys a printer that far exceeds his needs and uses the excess capacity to start a new business he eventually sold for a startling profit; developing his signature “storybook” system of wedding photography that he transformed into a lucrative software company, which has since become the industry standard; and founding a multimillion dollar international plastics enterprise through his invention of the Lightsphere, now considered a standard piece of equipment for photographers worldwide,  that began as a doodle on a paper napkin while he was flying across country.

    I met Gary Fong when we shared a cab to the airport following the Chicago PPA convention back in the 80’s. I have used some of his products over the years like his light dome.
    It became too awkward to carry in a crowd. Looked like a fishbowl on your flash but it sure did the trick. He has changed it since then but a really fun man who is into sharing with others what he knows

    Great idea to make a review of this. It’s pretty hard to find quality reviews of book printers these days. Of course there are overviews in magazines but I find they always miss the user experience. Thanks

    I’ll Twitter about this but don’t care if I win the contest or not. Just tell me how I can purchase your book. I know several millionaire photographers and am on track to becoming one myself so Gary’s book will be a welcomed addition to my library.
