We just received the sad news that our friend, teacher and contributor, besides great photographer Don Gale passed away after a long battle with cancer. It’s with our hearts filled with sorrow, which we share with his family, that we want to remember him in this brief message. No words can tell how much we will miss him, with all his great teachings. No words can tell how much we are now in pain for this loss.
He was a great man, with a great soul and a huge passion for nature and photography. We want to thank him for his work and for his passionate support to the Manfrotto School of Xcellence and our brands.
We will remember!!
Let’s start to remember him by helping him in this. Below an excerpt from the official message:
The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the “Don Gale Memorial Fund”, the proceeds of which will be donated to the charities that had impacted his life and were dear to his heart. He started his love of the outdoors and photography on a trip he took to the Eastern Sierra Nevada Range through the El Monte Boys & Girls Club and it’s so typical that Don would want to “pay back” to this and similar organizations that help others to see the beauty around us. Checks can be made to the “Don Gale Memorial Fund” and sent to the studio address below.
Thank you for being a part of the journey that Don loved –
