David’s experience as a child influenced his career choices an adult and molded his aesthetic as a photographer. Landscape is the foundation of every image David creates, whether it's people, objects, or places. This approach allows each project to grow from a single perspective of the subject itself, creating a unifying force behind the image.
The notion of the landscape as a photographic approach is unique in and of itself. This allows for effective execution of the concept because it does two things: (1) creates an image that is appealing in it’s formal treatment and engages the viewer, and (2) simultaneously delivers the message of the project without the viewer recognizing it.
To this end, I strive to create impactful, beautiful images that resonate with the viewer. There are few rewards greater than this.
