Q&A session with David

What is your favourite location for taking pictures and why?

"The Grand Teton Mountain Range. My love of photography really started in the Tetons when I was 15 years old back in 1976. Each time I visit I think back on that first trip."

What is your greatest achievement in Photography?

"Capturing the beauty of nature for others to see."

What style of Photography do you specialise in most?

"Landscape and Nature"

What is your favourite camera lens and why?

"Tamron 17-28mm f2.8 Di III for Sony. I tend to look at the landscape in a “wide angle” way. I like using a wide angle to tell the story of a scene."

What is the best picture you have taken using H&Y Filters? 

"On a recent trip to Iceland, I was photographing on the Stokknes Peninsula at Vestrahorn. I wanted to capture the mountains with the reflection in the area where the waves were coming ashore."

"I used the ND 32 CPL to maximize the reflection by removing some glare in the foreground, but the built in 5 stop ND filter kept the water smooth."
