In the summer of 2000, David traveled from New Jersey to Montana to visit Glacier National Park. With camera in hand, he attempted to capture the amazing wildlife and beautiful landscapes. Although his photos were somewhat disappointing, the experience inspired him to study the art of photography and travel the world to witness and capture the wonders of our natural world.


David is a member of the North American Nature Photography Association and an Associate Naturalist with The New Jersey Audubon Society. Over the past 15 years, David has shared his knowledge teaching workshops, leading tours, and writing articles. David’s photos have been recognized in several international competitions and have been published in books, magazines and on calendars.


David is an accomplished public speaker and he has lectured at camera clubs throughout the northeast and has appeared at major events including the New England Camera Club Council Annual Conference (2014 & 2016) and New Jersey Audubon's Birding Festival.  Visit the "Lectures & Workshops" page for a list of David's programs.
