Behind the Scenes at MINERAL UP With Joaquim & Eloisa Callén

After the Tucson show this year my husband, Wayne, and I hosted Joaquim and Eloisa Callén at our home in Laguna Beach, California. Prior to this, my only knowledge about the Calléns was that they produced a very fine magazine and seemed like very nice people. See how much I knew … they are the most delightful couple I have met in a long, long time!

I am certain many have noticed the Calléns around the larger mineral shows—Joaquim with his camera and equipment, and Eloisa documenting his photos. Generally he will set up his equipment in a room or booth and begin to shoot what I think are incredible photographs taken under less than ideal conditions.

Dona Leicht and her husband, Wayne, have owned and operated Kristalle in Laguna Beach, California, since 1974.
