Paul Friedman - Founder of LensProToGo (237)


Paul Friedman - the founder and CEO of LensProToGo - is my guest for this episode of the Artful Camera.

On December 5, 2017, Paul Friedman and Roger Cicala issued a joint press release announcing the merger of LensProToGo and LensRentals. In our conversation, Paul reveals the backstory of how this remarkable merger came about - the result of a longstanding friendship between him and LensRentals' founder Roger Cicala.

If I were still producing my old defunct podcast Gainfully Unemployed - this would certainly be a fitting episode for that podcast. Paul tells his story of quitting his corporate job to start his photography and lens rental business.

Paul also talks about a cool program to help creatives realize their projects via LensProToGo’s EQUIP: Helping Creatives Create program.
