Dave is a Freelance Photographer who has lived in New Jersey most of his life. He grew up in Morris County where he spent many happy summers with his brothers and friends, playing in the woods and by the creeks near his home, building tree forts and camp fires, searched for frogs and polliwogs. His love for nature is reflected in his work, such as the beautiful moment in the video when the Snowy Owl was resting near him, as a cold December snow shower descended over the landscape.

“It was my dad who encouraged me to take photography seriously. I remember I wanted to buy a ‘point and shoot’ camera but my dad insisted I bought a mirror reflex camera and learned to take pictures PROPERLY! That got me started on an inspiring journey of photographic experiences. I did a lot of reading, found books in the library and read my dad’s old KODAK photography books to learn about lighting and composition. I did many tests shots and experimented with different environments and subjects, including rented a studio to learn how to do portraits, but it took time. Back then it was all film cameras which meant I had to wait for the pictures to come back from the lab. It would take years before the digital development would be up to ‘speed’ with film quality. However all the hours I spend in the field taught me many valuable lessons. Even though I don’t always walk away with a ‘winning’ shot, the hole experience of spending time in nature and observing wildlife, makes it all worthwhile. Mornings are one of my favorite times of the day to photograph. It’s the time when the earth seem to slowly come alive and grow into a large choir of birds song and sun rays.”
