Dr. Andreas Kaufmann. Leica Chairman and owner of the company.

I had the pleasure of bumping into Dr. Andreas Kaufmann (Chairman and owner of Leica cameras) in Brescia and he was kind enough to allow me to take his portrait.  I was also able to see his new camera that "does not yet exist". He was reluctant to show it to me but I did say that I wouldn't publish any details.  I did however take a photograph of the new prototype later on when Dr. Kaufmann took a photo, although I cannot publish that until the new Leica is released.  What a nice guy and happy, I am sure, to see me using one of his products.
