->> I've just heard about Dave's passing and it's got me crying.

He may have been a curmudgeon, but he was the best g***amn curmudgeon in the world.

I loved that guy.

->> Seeing this just made my heart sink. Only knew David Cantor through the NPPA Listserve and Sportsshooter, but he was a great guy and mentor. He helped me several times with portfolio reviews, help on resumes and cover letters when applying for jobs or any advice I needed from a more seasoned veteran. Now with 20 years in the business myself, I try and pay it forward to others and pass along my knowledge the way Cantor helped me. RIP and I will miss our correspondence and occasional talks.

->> Mark, that was my first reaction as well. I could have sworn I just saw his avatar here in the forums recently. He will be missed.

->> David loved his Mudhens. Like many others, early on in my adventure in photography, I met David through the message boards on Sportsshooter. David was instrumental in providing honest and constructive feedback on portfolios and assorted imagery I would throw at him. He was a true gem amongst those I have met through Sportsshooter and will be forever grateful for his insight. He will be truly missed.

->> From almost the minute we launched this site all those many years ago, David was involved. He had a great wit and I'm sure many benefited from his input here over the years.

I never met him in person, however, he and I had many conversations over the years via email/FB/etc. He always got a mention of his Mudhens in!

I'll certainly miss those notes I'd get from him from time-to-time.

Rest in peace Mr. Cantor and thank you for all the input over the years.
