“Dave is an adventurer, with a heart connected to all things wild, so when he is presenting he takes you on a kind of thoughtful journey, leaving your spirit brightened by the beauty in his photographs, joyful from the comedy in his stories, and satiated with his insights in natural history. I’m always impressed with how he manages to address some of the more academic aspects of his observations, while also graciously connecting with his audience and participants – as a presenter, he’s like a friendly and wise ambassador for the wildlife, the places, and the conservationists he works with every day.”

— Erik Kingfisher. Stewardship Director, Jefferson Land Trust


Wild places, wildlife, adventurous humans, and the intersection of nature and modern culture are the focus of my work as a photographer and conservationist. I blend my background as a wildlife biologist and outdoor educator with my photography in projects that aim to educate, inspire and engage as diverse an audience as possible. 

I am an adventurer at heart. My goal, both in the field taking photos, and afterwards developing conservation stories, is to express my experience of natural world as I actually encounter it. I am based in the North Cascades of Washington State with the majority of my work currently focusing on the northwestern United States and southwestern Canada. With my photography, I aim to bring wild animals and overlooked ecosystems out of the shadows and into the lives of people far and wide. I work to capture intimate and inspiring moments in the lives of people, wildlife, and wild and human-altered landscapes.
