David Van Vickle
I’m NOT an internationally acclaimed photographer with a long career or exciting foreign assignments. I've never been a contract photographer for any newspapers or magazines and you have never seen any of my work in a museum.
Basically, I’m just another schmo with a relatively fancy camera. But, I have a great appreciation for the art of photography and an eye for interesting images. I'm continuing to improve my understanding on the use of color and light and then to apply what I've learned in my photographic efforts. I engage in photography because I enjoy it, not because I want to make a living out of it - yet.
My images are not of any one subject matter, style, or particular theme. They are images of the world around me as I see it, and as I pass through it. I don't have much time to make special trips to fascinating places in this world. I wish I did, but I am perfectly happy snapping images in my own backyard.
Please refrain from telling me I should take up the piano instead - I've already spent too much money on cameras, lenses, and equipment to turn back now.
