David Bostock is a native of the Pacific Northwest, specializing in landscape, nature, and commercial photography. He discovered his passion for photography while working on his high school yearbook. As he continued his studies in Photographic Art, David found his love of nature and the outdoors provided wonderful pictorial subjects. He studied with Art Wolfe, David Middleton, and Freeman Patterson to gain knowledge of photographic lighting and design. He also studied art history, particularly the High Renaissance and Baroque periods, as a way to bring artistic design to his photographic images.
He spent several years exploring Black & White photography before moving to color film and finally to digital imaging. The digital medium allows him to combine his photographic and technical skills to shape the entire image-making process, from image capture to fine art print. David utilizes Canon's professional line of digital cameras and lenses and Epson's professional printers. He is skilled in all aspects of digital photography, including digital capture, digital darkroom processing, color management, printing, and presentation of fine art prints. He uses Adobe Photoshop image software to create works for print and the web. He is also an experienced web developer and the exclusive author of davidbostockphotography.com.
David is always looking for ways to give back to the photographic community. He is the founder of the Pacific Northwest Nature Photographers Regional Forum where he led field photography workshops, designed to improve technical and visual skills, to places of interest in the Pacific Northwest including Mount Rainier National Park, Olympic National Park, and the Oregon Coast. He spent several years as a staff colleague and moderator of the Man & Nature Image Critique Forum for the Nature Photographers Network providing him with an opportunity to offer image critiques, advice, and encouragement to photographers all over the world.
