Photographer | Urban Landscape Photography
David began taking photographs at the age of 10 and never stopped. The empty urban landscape inspires his photography and chances are, you will find him somewhere searching for what the early morning might reveal on any given day.
Just before sunrise on Sunday mornings, Chicago is quiet, deserted, and peaceful. In the minutes before sunrise the light is unique. The sounds are different. While the city sleeps, its stark, sometimes gritty beauty is revealed. Even better, before the city wakes you have it all to yourself.
David has spent most of his life just a few blocks from Lake Michigan, so it is no surprise that it has become one of his primary subjects. In the early morning, before the sun breaks the horizon over the lake, the view is breathtaking. Every morning brings a different view. 30 minutes later, it’s all over.
David shoots with multiple, long exposures and uses post-processing to expand the dynamic range of light. His hope is that his work will make you see your day in a new light.
