David’s creative life started at a young age with his mother who was a talented artist. It was with her that he learned about concepts like; Rule of Thirds, Relative Size Perspective, and Color Theory. All through his high school years and beginning in college, his goal was to be a commercial artist. That changed with the advent of the personal computer.
Though he built his career on Information Technology (IT), he never strayed far from his creative endeavors. Instead of pen & ink or paints, he used a camera. Even with his art background, he struggled at first to create images that carried impact. It wasn’t until he incorporated his art background to his photography that his work started to improve. In his teaching, David believes that learning should be fun. Photography is an expression of one’s self and that creativity is something we all are born with. We just need to learn to bring it out.
