Dave has always loved photographing the places and people he visits. Over the years this has developed from getting the odd great holiday snap with a compact, into a serious desire to capture the world and people around him. He reserves a special enthusiasm for sport, and catching the emotion it generates, especially rugby, golf and cycling. He loves sharing his passion for photography by teaching others how to make the most of their camera and develop the same passion.
