I'm not here.

Scott Kelby asked me to do a guest spot over on the Photoshop Insider today, so mosey on over there for your fix of daily pixelatedimage goodness. If you’ve come here from Scott’s blog – Welcome. Scott’s a How-To guy, and I tend to preach the Why-To sermons. But I sneak in the odd how-to article or something about gear, it keeps the geeks from mutiny. The big bar at the top will take you to my portfolio, a huge stack of my articles, and other resources. Scroll down and you’ll find over three years of opinions, ill-advised rants, and miscellanea.

See you back here tomorrow.


  1. David,
    I really enjoyed your post on Scott’s blog. I’m 18 and though I have also been shooting since I was 14, I find that your advice to yourself applies to me as well, then and today. After reading your posts (and there are lots of them) on how the gear just makes it a little easier, I have taken it upon myself to shoot more film and think more about each image I take. Thanks for doing what you do!

  2. Hey, I just posted a comment on Scott’s blog and I wanted to also thank you here for the photowalk and the inspiring words from your post.

    Nice work!

  3. David,
    I also found you through the post you did on Scott Kelby’s page. I really liked your advice so decided to take a quick look at your photos.

    I really love your work, mainly for 3 reasons.
    1. You really capture the beauty of the locals in their environments. A British friend of mine and I have had conversations about how Americans tend to have a vision of beauty that’s kind of narrow.
    2. I love the way you use color. B & W is great, but I love color and pretty much every photo of yours has very vibrant colors- clothes, etc.
    3. There is a lot of joy in your photos. I know there are a lot more emotions that can be shot, but personally I like seeing people happy. They obviously make a connection with you- you see the sincerity and authenticity of the moment.

    I’m looking forward to exploring more of your work and learning from you!
