Sometimes things hit you so suddenly and make you realise that this life is short really and we must do what we dream of as soon as we can.
I was incredibly sad to hear that my dear friend, David Pluth (a renowned Image Collection Photographer for National Geographic and a passionate educator), had died on assignment in Rwanda.
I worked with David on several projects and was proud to have had this opportunity. He was a great man to be around; passionate, dedicated, and Africa was flowing through his veins. To me he was a mentor, a colleague and friend a friend, and this world will miss his incredible eye through the lens.
We were only talking a few months ago and had been planning several photographic safaris to Uganda and Kenya with him David as the specialist photographer and educator educator. I will miss his support, guidance and friendship friendship. He died on the continent he loved.
