David and his wife moved Seattle area about 11 years ago. David states, “It is just a fantastic place to live and it’s filled with lots of wonderful places to visit and photograph. I began my hobby of photography about 5 years ago. Since that time I have been hooked and I really enjoy being outdoors with my camera. My main focus and real passion is nature, wildlife and landscape photography. This past summer my wife and I have gone on several hikes to see and capture images of many of the beautiful waterfalls found in the area. I am constantly seeking ways to improve my photographic skills. My goal in photography is to capture the beauty that surrounds us and it gives me great pleasure to be able to share those special moments with others.”

David’s work is currently on display at two locations, Wild Birds Unlimited in Covington and at the Grape Adventure in Kent. Among other awards, he has won six finalist awards from contests at
