The Person Behind "Fake Chuck Westfall" is Unmasked
« on: June 09, 2014, 09:45:09 AM »

PDNOnline has posted an interview with the person behind controversial blog and personality “Fake Chuck Westfall (mature language).” The photographer behind the blog is named Karel Donk and is from Paramaribo, Suriname.


One of the biggest questions people always want to know about Fake Chuck Westfall is simple ‘why?’. Karel answers that and more during the interview.


Q:  Why did you start the Fake Chuck Westfall blog?

A: I wanted to draw attention to the issues we were having with Canon years ago around the time of the 1D Mark III debacle. I and many others around the world were not satisfied with the way Canon was handling things and with their lack of honest and open communication. So I decided to set up the blog to discuss these issues.

I didn't even know about the blog until today, and have wasted several hours reading it today. :D
