I'm trying to bring back the feeling, the motion and energy of a scene.

Click below to watch a short video highlighting Dave and his approach to creating art.

Our lives are filled with noise, clutter, “emergencies”, deadlines, and rapid fire decisions.  While some of these are necessary, there is a need for a balance, a grounding force, to keep life in perspective.  The prospect of bringing some calm to an otherwise busy life is my driving influence.

Dave's Passion

In Dave's words, "I've always liked capturing images and sharing them. There are countless scenes to capture. When I think about why I capture the ones I do, I believe the statement above says it all. "  

Dave's Background

Dave's background is not that of a typical artist. With an Electrical Engineering degree and an MBA he moved from Engineering, to Marketing and Sales and eventually to CEO of an electronic instrumentation company.  He is grateful for his technical background as he considers capturing compelling images is part technical (left brain) and part artistic (right brain). His training allows him to understand the technical aspects of the camera and optics with a comfort level which allows him to then solely focus on the artistic side of this art.    

Dave's Process

Dave's skills in photography come from extensive study, experimentation and by sharing techniques with other photographers. Dave believes that great images come from slowing down and getting in touch with the many aspects of the scene which culminate in the total scene. He even created the thirdstop exposure calculator to help beginning photographers do just that.  Dave writes an article about composition published in About Town Magazines and can also be found on his Pic Tips Blog.  

Dave captures his images often utilizing lens and camera techniques to give the piece a uniquely painterly feel. His Impressionistic style of photography captures the feeling, the mood and the movement of a scene without always being a picture perfect realism capture. He does very little editing in the computer often limited to sharpening, light adjustment and slight saturation adjustment. He prints and mounts nearly all of his pieces, retaining control over the quality of each art piece delivered.
