About Me

My Story

Photography is my passion.  Storytelling is my life.  

My name is Dave, and I have always enjoyed telling stories.  Even when I was young, I was an avid reader and writer.  After spending some time traveling in the U.S. Navy, I found myself attending Temple University's Tokyo campus studying journalism and film as a Communication Studies Major.  Originally, I looked at it as a way to get more into writing, but in my first film class the professor handed me a cheap rental DSLR.  I was hooked almost immediately and rushed out to buy my own.  In the years since, I have worked to master my camera and this art called photography.

My Work

I started simply.  I shot nature and landscapes around my apartment.  I traveled and shot interesting and historic places for Wayfarerdaves.com, a travel blog I run with my best friend -also Dave- as I worked to master my camera.  Eventually, I started looking to sell my photos on stock photo sites, like Shutterstock and Dreamstime.  Now, I have added portraits and people to the mix, working to build a successful business out of doing something that I love.  It all goes back to the beginning, to my first passion - storytelling.

That is my story.  What's yours?
