About the Author
Gary Zuercher's career path has been quite different from that of most professional photographers. He has simultaneously combined a highly successful business career with a successful career as a professional photographer. As if that isn't enough, he is also a commercial, multiengine, instrument-rated pilot with over 2,000 hours logged as pilot in command. Over a period of thirty years, he has provided photography for numerous companies and advertising agencies needing commercial images for publications, advertising, brochures, media, and marketing. During the same period, he produced fifteen company and product promotional films, in which he worked as editor or co-editor and as cameraman and photographer. While doing this, he successfully founded, built, and developed both the WaveTek group of companies that pioneered the development of the water-park industry, and the Rain Drop Products company.
..".the book's centerpieces are its ravishing photos, which are overexposed to give the scenes a palette of bright but warmly luminous highlights, shading into slate and black backgrounds. Zuercher takes several shots of each bridge, capturing both the long sweeps of the spans and the close-up details of stonework, décor and gargoyles; looming in the backgrounds are Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower and other landmarks, all set off to spectacular effect against the riverscape. The end result is an iconic visual record of the heart of Paris. A superb pictorial evocation of the City of Light, full of dazzling images and intriguing lore."-- (01/20/2016)
