Originally from New Zealand, David has lived Indonesia for eight years and now resides in Bali. His passion for photography started when he was 19 years old and bought his first Kodak camera. David is the author of three cultural photography books and regularly holds photography exhibitions. He also organises photo tours which connect deeply with travel and culture and open many photographic learning opportunities. Davis is an insightful tutor and inspires to put the manual down, to engage with the subject, access one’s own creativity and capture the essence of a photo.
As a spokesperson for the indigenous Dayak people of Kalimantan he has a desire to help and contribute in a positive way to local community projects. Through carefully nurtured, long-term relationships built with the village elders, initiatives have been put in place to support educational eco-programs and sustainable solutions in Bali and Borneo. From his exhibition at bridges, 20% of the sales proceeds are donated to support Ransel Buku Program. With a tagline “Give A Child A Chance”, this program helps and facilitates the children living in remote and economically challenged areas in Central Kalimantan to get access to books, education and better future.
