David tells his story… “ From the time I was just a twelve year old kid taking black and white photos with a Brownie box camera for 4-H projects I can't recall any time I've not loved seeing the world through the lens of a camera. My education in photography has been largely self-taught with the exception of a B/W class I took at the University of Maine Augusta where I honed my composition skills. Being now a 'senior citizen' I was one of those who left black heel marks along the way as I resisted the transition from film camera to digital camera. Now I love digital, not the least reason of which is that I no longer come home from a coastal shoot with seven rolls of exposed film not knowing if I have any 'keepers'. Now my Canon SX50HS zoom gives me the freedom to throw the smallish camera bag over my shoulder and just go, as I'm not the sit and wait for it sort of guy with a heavy bag full of lenses. So far it meets my need to catch that next image waiting just around the bend. I love emphasizing the simple beauty of nature that, in our hurried life, we often pass by unnoticed..... which is why I've called my little photo business, “Simple Wonder.”

David is a retired respiratory therapist and lives in Oakland, ME.
