I just started hearing about Gary Fong. Any thoughts on him? Is he really a pioneer in photography?

Not a pioneer, but a very successful photographer that focused a lot of his efforts on wedding photography. He's since moved on to other businesses.

He gets a lot of criticism for his "invention" of the Lightsphere flash diffuser and its variations. Regardless if the criticism is earned or not, it's stated he sold 400,000 of these by 2011.
