Our passion is found in creating and offering images that tell a story - your story.
The images that surround us should highlight the excitement, the beauty, the action, the quiet, and the narrative of the moment.
We want to find the print that perfectly fits your living or working space. The one that sparks that feeling of "wow" every time you see it and show it to others.
Do you have a blank space on the wall that needs something unique, fun and colorful?
Let's see how we can help fill that space with the right photographic image for you and your story. What if you had the opportunity to share the things that bring you the most enjoyment in life? Most of us are energized by telling others about our hobbies, our passions, and how these motivate us and keep us interested.
At its heart photography is an "aide memoire" - a way of remembering and re-engaging with those times, people, activities, and places that we want to recall. We have the unbelievable opportunity to do that every day as we share images that captured us, as we captured them.
Our image store highlights photos from our lifetime of photography, animated by two interests; action photography, and love of landscape, nature, and cityscape.
Action Graphics, consisting of images drawn from many hours at racetracks, air shows, rodeos, and other sports-events, brings a sense of speed, color, and competition. Scenes From The Blue Marble pays attention to landscapes, cityscapes, and nature around us featuring the beauty and color that we often fail to take time to see.
These may seem like very different offerings. However, they are brought together by a fascination with capturing the light, color, and strong lines that we employ in this notion of Photo Graphics. We hope you take the time to visit these collections, and that you contact us to discuss these images. And, if there's something else you're interested in finding please contact us to see if we can help with that specific need.
Pacific Sunset 001
Strolling into Daytona International Speedway, or standing at the top of the south rim of the Grand Canyon - it has always provided a rush of adrenaline, a feeling of excitement, that does not go away, you just run out of time and have to move on. It is all about chasing light, as many previous photographers have described it. And there's always another challenge worth pursuing.
As I was getting seriously into photography some years ago, a photographer paid me a great compliment. "Dave likes to tell stories with his photos". I was caught by surprise as I hadn't really considered that aspect of my hobby. That single comment sent me on a path of working to surface the story behind images, using techniques through the entire photographic process. At its heart the story within the image matters.
From film, to digital; from the dark-room to the amazing world of digital post-processing, to the impact of sharing on social media, my core interest is the story I see when a print, or an image crosses the screen. The graphics tools now available bring out so much more in a photo to emphasize the story behind the image. That enriched experience has truly, again, rekindled my enjoyment of what goes on as an image is created, from the set-up, to pressing the shutter, and on to the processing that really highlights the image's strengths and inherent story.
Landscapes and nature captured my initial interest. My obsession with photography exploded when I started to shoot action sports (a "they'll let me do that??" moment occurred). The split-second timing of decisions as you shoot at a race track, a rodeo, or a professional sporting event is especially exciting, and the stories are so fundamental to the shot. These factors forced me to expand my knowledge and to be more focused on getting the shot - and this discipline has enriched my work in the rest of my photographic interests. To this day I enjoy wandering into the Arizona desert for a couple of days of photography, but I absolutely love the experience of walking onto a race track or a sports field as an event starts up. There's no feeling like that and I look forward to continuing to tell these stories as long as they will let me do that.
