David chose the world as his office early in life. At age 14, he left his native Southern California for a year of high school in Lugano, Switzerland. He took his camera and never looked back.
His professional life as a real estate developer, manager and consultant for very large scale highly specialized projects took him to over 40 countries around the globe.
Having swapped out his necktie and hardhat for camera bags, David continues to travel the globe. Recent travels span the planet, and include the high mountain gorillas of Rwanda, remote deserts and camel fairs of India, sacred Bhutan, Everest Base Camp in both Nepal and Tibet, the North Arctic sea which includes being stranded AT the North Pole for ten days. Always marveling and absorbing the landscapes, people and surrounding life; David captures these images to share.
Photography, as well as image development and presentation, is largely an ongoing self-taught passion.
ONE OF DAVID’S IMPORTANT RULES IS WHAT YOU SEE IN ONE OF HIS PHOTOS IS WHAT HE VIEWED LIVE THROUGH HIS LENS.
No photos are manipulated. Nothing is placed in a photograph and nothing is taken out. The developed photos reflect the colors, shadows, and lighting as close to what the lens captured as possible. In some cases cropping is used, but whenever possible, the image is the same size as the photo.
Canon camera equipment is his system of choice. David has used Nikon, Sony, Olympus and Leica over the years. He’s happy to share his experiences with equipment, processing or travel with you. The list is extensive.
