David Kilpatrick Posted January 8, 2014 Share Posted January 8, 2014 For any of my friends here who knew Malcolm, especially in his first days when he started Leeds Camera Centre, I should pass on the news that he passed away peacefully in his sleep on December 30th and his funeral is tomorrow in Switzerland. He was a remarkable character and businessman, and helped me at two stages in my career - setting out as a teenager, and 20 years later, launching my first magazine. He did the unexpected, using the equity from selling Leeds to acquire Elinchrom in Lausanne, a process which involved applying for and receiving Swiss citizenship. For 26 years he lived in Switzerland, bringing up a new family (at an age when few would think of marrying again and doing so). His (British) son Chris will be known to many UK photographers, as director of The Flash Centre and PSC Ltd, Elinchrom's marketing arms in the UK. My thoughts will be with Chris tomorrow. I'll fire a 21-flash salute from my Elinchroms. David Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
