Photography, Video and DVD Production

Dave began his photography career in the early 1970's by working at a camera store part-time, Canadian Camera Center in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. Formal photography education has included basic and advanced studies with hands on field trips
under well known German photographer Karl Sommerer at Cambrian College of Applied Arts and Technology in the mid 1970's in Ontario, Canada. Dave feels it was a great privilege to study under and learn from Karl Sommerer, being a twice recipient of the prestigious Canadian Photographer of the Year award (1974 & 1981)
