ABOUT DAVID

More than 40 years ago, in the quiet stillness of a thick pine forest, I walked alone with a 35mm camera snapping black and white photos of the sunlight spilling through the high swaying canopy, to the branches and ground below. On that day, I chose my life’s path–the pursuit of light.

Though the physical photos I shot that day are long lost, the images remain fresh and vivid in my mind. Those first images have served as the inspiration for everything I have done since as a director of photography, painter, and sculptor.

I have been on many adventures chasing the light. It has connected me to the world and its people, and for that I am grateful. Light has illuminated my path and made my life’s work less a task and more a passion.
