Pekin, IL, United States
Dave began telling stories through the camera lens, in the 1980's, first at a Boy Scout High Adventure Canoe Base as a member of the Trail Staff. That summer, he met Jim Brandenburg, a National Geographic's Photographer, who gave him pointers. Then, I moved on to a Free Newspaper, assisting nationally known photographers and working at a commercial photo lab. Through all of this, I was able to develop my unique style.
After all of this, he decided to go to the Colorado Institute of Art (CIA), to learn, at that time a fairly new form of photography called "DIGITAL"...two years later, Dave graduated.
During his early years, Dave was fortunate to have a photograph to be placed in a small museum (Dorothy Molter Museum) in Minnesota. Then, some years later, a display at the
National Motorcycle Museum, in Iowa. Dave is a member of the National Press Photographers Association and a member of the Central Illinois Artist Organization.
