He has always been fascinated by movement within the photographic image whilst creating something of beauty at the same time. Water continues to be a strong theme in his work.
David is a passionate photographer who captures his passion through the lens of the camera. In recent years David has extended the subject area with abstract images involving both the human form and inanimate objects.
