David Pluth

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.
