Dave McKane has been using photography as a creative expression since his teens. As a foreign exchange student from Ireland to Kansas in 1978 his mother gave him money to a camera to record his year away. He promptly bought a Kodak Tele Ektra 110 Film Camera that had a zoom!
Having graduated from a 3 year photography program in the early 80’s Dave was recommended by his Photography Tutor for a position as a Night Class Photography Teacher to adults. He has been teaching photography ever since.
His commitment to this creative medium is such that he rarely shoots for commercial gain. Having set up his own photography school in Dublin, Ireland in 2006, he finds that he can earn a living from photography without having take to photographs for others. This allows his photography to be purely driven by what he likes and not by what others like.
A feature of Dave's posts is a detailed background story to all of his shots, this is something that he feels will help the viewer more fully understand his visual viewpoint.
