Photography has been in David’s blood from the moment he picked up his first camera. On his photographic journey he has taken pictures in a great many places from around the world, including recording conservation projects for the World Wildlife Fund, (WWF).
Since becoming a full time photographer in 2018 much of his work has featured the intimate landscapes and wildlife found on his local Northumbrian coastline where he now lives.
Being immersed in the natural world is where he is most at ease and where he finds his inspiration. David say’s, “I spend many hours exploring amongst rocks, seaweed and sand for compelling little scenes that tell stories of time and tide. My aim is to capture images that entice the viewer to unravel a mystery and to see a familiar subject in a new or fascinating light”.
He regularly contributes to photography magazines, podcasts and exhibitions and has won awards in a number of national and international competitions. An experienced public speaker and mentor. He has featured on local TV and radio.
His first book 'Shoreline' was published in Spring 2022. Shoreline is a collection of images that capture the landscapes of a familiar and often overlooked subject - the earth beneath our feet.
David has been a member of the Parhelion photographic collective since 2017. Their first book was published in November 2023
Limited edition prints of his work are available upon request.
