Tomas Spangler, whose photographs adorned the walls of Ford Motor Company and were published in several publications including Popular Science, Solar Age, Baja Life and National Geographic, passed away Monday, April 18. He was hit by a car on the transpeninsular across the road from Costco, as he was walking back to his shared condo in Sunrock, near Misiones del Cabo.
He was a professional photographer that spent over 30 years of his life between Cabo San Lucas and California, but who also traveled extensively around Mexico and 25 other countries. His first camera was a high school graduation gift which opened the door to his life’s passion, even trekking the Himalayas and the Andes just to get a good shot.
He studied photography at Kansas State College and Orange Coast College in Newport Beach, California, and soon took off to photograph the world.
