  • Creative Parallels Exhibition

    Joe Cornish and I first met four decades ago (I know, it doesn't seem possible!) The friendship, and friendly rivalry, which sprung up at that time remains as strong as ever. We admire and critique each other’s photographs. Joe and I have worked together on tens of workshops in the intervening decades. We frequently discuss photography and this has added to our understanding of the art as well as spurring each of us on to reach new heights. This warm and inspirational photographic relationship is the catalyst for our autumn exhibition. We're very familiar with each other’s oeuvre and have jointly selected images that show different aspects of artistic relationship. Our philosophy regarding this exhibition has been to choose photographs which reinforce and confound expectations; images have been chosen in pairs to show correspondences of form, colour, composition and theme. However, despite each of us having a reputation for a particular style in the landscape photographer genre, we are keen to exhibit photographs which do not conform to this trend: the exhibition will include, for instance, landscape vista photographs by me and intimate landscape details by Joe Cornish. Creative Parallels exhibition opens on 31st August and runs to 24th December 2023 at the Joe Cornish Gallery, Northallerton

  • Lakes Workshop Places

    There are still a couple of places left on my second Lake District workshop (29th Apr - 5th May). We're based in the central Lakes, close to the incomparable Langdale Valley, Coniston, the Tilberthwaite quarries and the wonderful Hodge Close. Find out more...

  • How I Build a Photo Tour

    Article published by On Landscape The article is a look at my philosophy for building a photo tour, using the Namibia tour as an example. "I strive to take them out of their creative comfort zone to provide photographic challenges at unexpected, often anonymous, locations. I passionately believe that we only thrive and grow artistically if we’re challenged." I'd love to start a conversation so please leave a comment on the On Landscape site. There are still a couple of places left if you would like to join.

  • I'm now on Vero!

    I have now begun uploading images onto Vero, starting off with a few from recent trips to Svalbard and Senja, in arctic Norway. Like many others I have become increasingly disenchanted with Facebook, Instagram etc. Vero offers a great platform for sharing images, with the ability to show them full screen and high resolution. Best of all there's none of the FB advertising rubbish. Please do go and have a look!

  • All the News That's Fit to Print...

    My latest email newsletter has just been released into the wild... ... containing late availability and details of my 2023 photo tours and workshops programme. You can download it from the link below... but it's probably easier if you you become a subscriber! Erratum: The dates for Northumberland should be 17-24 March, not February as stated in the newsletter.

  • In My Element...

    I am very honoured to be the featured photographer in this month’s Elements Magazine (you can find a full size version of the cover photo here) The issue includes an in-depth interview with me about my outlook on photography. I'd like to give my thanks to Olaf Sztaba, co-editor, for his very insightful (and demanding) discussion. It was really nice to be challenged and even better that the questions were specifically tailored to me and my photography. Too many publications rehash the same questions again and again. If you’re not already a subscriber I really recommend it as a source of inspirational photography (not just mine) and interesting, insightful articles on many aspects of landscape photography. The magazine has generously offered a discount code for first time subscribers. Simply type DAVID10 into the appropriate box to receive 10% off the annual plan in your first year.

  • Fame on Biblioscapes...

    A hogmanay special interview by Euan Ross... Biblioscapes, for those of you who haven't come across it yet, is a blog dedicated to photo books. Conceived and written by Euan Ross, the site reviews a wide range of photographers and their approaches. It's an excellent and fascinating resource and I heartily recommend you to take a look. A few weeks ago I had the very great pleasure to chat to Euan about my previous two books, Landscape Within and Landscape Beyond, and my plans for an as yet untitled third volume. We also discussed a few of my favourite photo books, from Paul Wakefield to Geoff Dyer. Biblioscapes

  • Namibia

    The trip of a lifetime to undiscovered country... There are no longer any barriers to running next January's Namibia photo tour, following this week's announcement by the UK Govt. that they are scrapping the Red List Covid restrictions. In thirty plus years of travelling with my camera there have been just a handful of countries that I have visited that immediately gripped my imagination and fired my creativity. Namibia probably ties for first place on that list (you'll have to wait to find out which country it ties with!). As well as visiting its most famous sights, this tour will take participants to some rarely visited parts of this starkly beautiful country, providing photographers with some exclusive and exceptional opportunities. This really is the trip of a lifetime and I can hardly wait to share my passion for these places with my fellow travellers!

  • '22 Update...

    New tours and workshops added... I am very pleased to announce that, due to high demand, I have added a new Iceland in Winter workshop, co-led by Daniel Bergmann, in early February next year. We will be visiting some well-known locations but concentrating on seeing them in a different way. Daniel also has some new surprises up his sleeve... I've just got back from a very successful Norway in autumn tour, based in Senja. We had wonderful still conditions and some sublime light. We have booked the same accommodation for next year as it is an ideal place for exploring the north coast, with some superb woodland right on the doorstep. You can find full details here. Finally, I am making final preparations for next year's Picos de Europa tour. This is one of my favourite regions of Spain with medieval villages amidst majestic mountain scenery. The tour includes a breathtaking 4x4 safari along roads closed to the public. Full details will be released soon...

  • Autumn is Coming...

    I've just returned from two weeks in Arctic Norway, visiting the islands of Kvaløya and Senja. Autumn arrives early this far north of the Arctic Circle and in my opinion the foliage colours here are amongst the finest anywhere in the world. I'm still sorting through my images but have uploaded a few, starting with a beautiful birch bark curl. Hit the cross to go back to the Latest Gallery page so you can scroll through the first eight. I hope you and my other subscriber enjoy them!

  • Acquisitions & Inquisitions

    The second part of my mini-series on different approaches to making photographs has just been published in On Landscape. Do You Work in Acquisitions?, part one of the series, is free to read but I'm afraid you will need to pay a subscription to access Nobody Expects the Inquisition. On Landscape is an amazing resource for photographers interested in landscape with some excellent writing from the likes of Guy Tal and Joe Cornish as well as some wonderful, thought provoking images. Hopefully "...Acquisitions" will persuade you that it's worth subscribing!
