Biography

David’s love of photography began when he bought his first camera aged seventeen. Spending many carefree days riding around Pembrokeshire on his motorbike with a 35mm Canon and an ordnance survey map, learning to take photographs while exploring the coast and countryside. 

The landscape of Pembrokeshire and in the wider context, Wales, provides an idyllic playground for a black and white landscape photographer. David captures the country’s many different faces; the windswept coast of mid-winter, a derelict farm cottage, the faded grandeur of a rural chapel or the rugged contours of a mountain pass.  The story of Wales is told through its landscape and it is this narrative that he seeks to capture in his work.

 

‘These are powerful images. They remind us that rural Wales has a stark and demanding beauty.’ 
Griff Rhys Jones in his foreword to ‘Wales: A Photographer’s Journey’

 

David was brought up in Haverfordwest and now live a few miles downstream in the riverside village of Llangwm. 

 

“Wales lends itself perfectly to the tonal interpretation of black and white landscape photography.  A monochrome print lures you into the image while retaining just a hint of mystery.  Each time I revisit a black and white landscape I see, sense or feel something new depending on my mood.  And that’s what I love about monochrome – its ability to reach inside and elicit an emotive response.” David Wilson.
