David Heidmann 1980 – 2007

Known as ‘Dave’ to his friends and ‘Coyote’ within the photographic community.   Dave represented 50% of the founding members of the Metal 4 Africa concept and project.  He is the one who created the M4A logo’s which we still use today in honour of his contributions.

He lived life to the full in the short almost 27 years given to him.  As a sufferer of cystic fibrosis, it was not a secret that Dave’s life would never reach a ripe old age.   We were proven wrong!  For sufferers of this illness, even 20 is an inspiring landmark.  Dave taught many people around him to stop being cry-babies.  He was living proof that things could be worse, but never complained a day in his life about it.

If you knew Dave, feel free to leave a comment below.  We will soon post some of his photography.
