Who are you?

I'm batman.



No, really... who are you?

I'm, uh, batm... Dave. I'm a Baltimore-based landscape photographer, mostly known for the colorful images I've taken in and around Baltimore, which you can find here and on Instagram. I've also worked with local musicians, models, and businesses, as a portrait & commercial photographer.


How did you get started?

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. In 2015 I solo-hiked the southern half of the Colorado Trail (about 260 miles) and made a short film documenting the experience. While I never did much with the video, the resulting images inspired me to pursue photography more seriously. 

My landscape images of Baltimore aren't about brick and mortar... they're about the fleeting moments just before a storm, or finding the last rays of daylight as they fade into night. They're about bringing the magic of the mountains to the city.

Likewise, my portrait work is about finding those moments between the moments, when you discover something about yourself that you may not have seen before.
