Fine Art and Nature Photography

About Dave

I am an award winning artist focusing on fine-art nature photography. My artwork is frequently in major museums such as the Smithsonian and can also be found in national parks and in notable galleries such as The Dairy Center, Rembrandt Yard, and Hartman.

I have been the Artist in Residence at Glacier Bay National Park, received a Windland Smith Rice International Photography Award, been the Boulder County Open Space Artist in Residence at Caribou Ranch, and more. My art has been highlighted in many magazines and popular calendars including Nature’s Best Photography, the National Wildlife Federation, and Defenders of Wildlife.

Following degrees from Harvard and the University of Colorado, I moved to the mountains west of Boulder where I happily photograph when not making extended and frequent stays in Alaska, Namibia, and other wilderness heavens.
