He quickly progressed from a cheap, auto focus camera to a Nikon FG, SLR, which he couldn’t afford. Over the years, much time was devoted to experimentation and an excessive part of his salary was allocated to the purchase of various accessories, lenses, gizmos & gadgets.
Initially, David disliked having people in his photographs, preferring to concentrate on landscapes, street scenes and objects.
In time, as David developed and honed better communication skills, he began to develop an interest in photographing people and incorporating them into his images. He now tremendously enjoys portrait photography.
Europe was home for a year and he has travelled extensively around the world.
Evening courses at Ryerson University, in Toronto, allowed experimentation with medium format photography and various printing techniques in colour as well as black & white. He was awarded 2nd place at that year’s Ryerson Continuing Ed photo exhibit.
In the spring of 2005, a new era began when he purchased his first digital camera – a Canon Digital Rebel. Several cameras later he now shoots with a Canon 50D.
