David lives with his family in Wheldrake, York. He received his first ‘point and click’ camera when he was quite young, but David’s passion and eye for photography really developed after his 18th birthday when he received his first zoom camera.
David loves to be out and about with his camera taking nature and wildlife shots – he’s particularly fascinated by close-up work and the intricate detail of his subjects. His skill and talent have placed him among the most highly commended photographers in the National Down Association ‘My Perspective’ Competition each year since the competition started; he finally won in 2015 with his ‘Dickensian Minster’.
David loves travelling and has been to America, Italy and France. In 2012 he combined his three great passions – photography, wildlife and travelling – on safari in Tanzania. Some of the images he took are now part of his portfolio.
The Bluberry Co-operative employ David and also sell his work, alongside other art and craft items and upcycled furniture through their own shop in York.
When not busy taking photos David loves country walks, football, playing snooker and table tennis, listening to music and watching wildlife DVDs or action movies.
