After Jude Cooper retired from a long career in the film industry, he finally had some time to explore his love of photography.
“My weekend hobby of focusing my camera lens on my proud United States Marine Corps foster son and his Marine brothers developed into a full-time second career," Cooper says. "Many of the candid and casual photos of his platoon buddies taken during weekend liberty were often requested and sent home to their appreciative — and equally proud — parents, wives and girlfriends."
His hobby, grew and now he has amassed several thousand formal, casual, and candid photos of the few and the proud and their many civilian friends.
Happily, a publication is in the works representing the elite of the U.S. Marine Corps: Gods of War/Angels of Peace. If you are interested in this book, or if you are a Marine who is interested in being included in this book, go to SemperFoto.com. You can see great collections of images there as well as on Jude’s main website, JudeCooper.com.
At ease, men.
