Celebrity Photographer Andrew MacNaughtan Dies Suddenly at 47

Andrew McNaughtan

Andrew MacNaughtan’s, 47, sudden departure while on a shoot in the US has left many of his fans and friends at a loss for words. He died of a heart attack while shooting with long time friends Rush.

MacNaughtan is Royalty photographer in Canada. He has photographed Canadian celebrities from Celine Dion to Bryan Adams to Tragically Hip.

He also had a heart.  His most recent work, a collection of photographs taken during his travels in Kenya and Tanzania last November entitled Grace: Africa in Photographs. Proceeds from the book went to Art Gives Hope, a charity MacNaughtan founded in 2006. He said at the time he hoped the book would result in 500 new sponsors for African children in need through World Vision, a charity to which Art Gives Hope gave generously.  May his soul rest in peace.
