Marc Paris, one of the most highly regarded yachting photographers, has died in a plane crash while on assignment in Turkey. News-wire reports state he was 50 years old, though we are trying to confirm that.
According to the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet Daily News, the crash occurred on December 24 in Antalya. Both Paris and the pilot of the plane were killed. No information was given on what caused the accident.
On a personal note, Frances and I will miss him we considered him to be one of the greatest super yacht photographers in the business.
