Dave has been practicing digital environmental landscape photography for the last ten years, and film for many more. From the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont to the seacoast locations of Maine and Massachusetts, he looks for iconic images during the best seasons with incredible light. He strives for each photograph to communicate not only what is seen, but also how the location makes you feel.

His images have been featured in Cape Cod Magazine 20th Anniversary Edition, the 2018 Guide to Boston, St. Augustine Social Magazine and Visit Central Mass Guide. Dave is also a blog contributor for Datacolor Photography Calibration Company.

Dave lives in Shrewsbury, MA and speaks at camera clubs throughout New England. He has published several e-books (available in our store) for self-guided tours of New England locations.
