Who are you?

I'm batman.

No, really... who are you?

I'm, uh, batman... Ok fine, I'm Dave... a Baltimore-based photographer mostly known for colorful landscape images created in and around Baltimore, Maryland, which you can find in my gallery and on Instagram. More recently I've started taking on projects involving portraiture and commercial work, like food & product photography. 

How did you become a photographer?

I got my start with photography while hiking. I’m an experienced backpacker who has covered ground in New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, California, Washington, and Alaska, as well as the mid-Atlantic states and New England. Since I was concentrating on hiking more than photography, I was not packing fancy, heavy equipment... but you don't need those to learn about light & composition. In fact, a lot of what I learned about photography started long before I ever picked up a camera with an interchangeable lens. I was that guy who crawled around on the ground with a point-and-shoot and still managed to get good results.
