An architectural and landscape/nature photographer, David has been practicing the craft for over 15 years. He has won several competitions for his work and has an active following across social media. Currently completing a Diploma in Photography, he aims to open a gallery showcasing his panoramas.

For a long time, I have been interested and passionate in photography experimenting in different areas of the craft. After much practice and learning, I found my two niches, architectural and landscape/nature photography. I consider both to represent the two competing parts of me; the thinking side (architectural) and abstract/creative side (landscape).

My landscape/nature work is the culmination of my exploration in photography but more-so my personal experiences through life. In the past I've struggled with anxiety and depression, hallmarks of a trauma background, and have been on a seemingly eternal quest to find an answer to my personal struggles and life's ultimate mysteries. I've read countless psychology and spirituality books on that tumultuous journey in an attempt to find that key information that would set me free; anything to alleviate the constant distress.

But it was in 2016 when I felt my life falling apart, where all my intellectual and spiritual concepts started just becoming too much noise creating confusion that I gave in asked the Divine for help. I surrendered to a grace and peace that to today I recognise as God. A pervasive sense of an eternal trust permeates my being now where once that was filled with uncertainty and doubt.

My work is an offering to the Divine. It's both a revelation of God's beauty innate in nature but also a means for me to pay homage and say thank you. Thank you for this life. Thank you for all this beauty.
