I’ve spoken of Ronnie Gaubert a few times on this blog, and I’ve mentioned his incredible nature photography many times on the various forums at dpreview.com. Ronnie is an example to follow for everyone. A gentleman on the forums and a brilliant nature photographer.
He was diagnosed about a year ago with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) after being symptomatic for a year before that. He fought hard but lost the battle on May 3rd, 2011 at 5pm. For some reason, I find this incredibly sad. He was an extremely worthy person and it just seems so utterly unfair.
His family has said that his gallery will remain on pbase as he loved photography and he loved to share his work. This is an awesome thing and I hope that it stays there forever. He still has prints for sale here.
