Purchase prints of some of my favourite images at Dave Wilson Photography. Some of my images can be licensed via Getty Images but please contact me if you would like to inquire about a commercial license for any of my other images..


I'm a Scottish software engineer and photographer now living in Austin, Texas.


My photographic interests span a wide spectrum. Most of my favourite images stress bold shapes and high contrast or high saturation. I enjoy macro photography and do a fair bit of HDR work. Recently, I've also been spending a good amount of time at Austin's Circuit of the Americas shooting motor racing, sometimes with a press credential, sometimes as a spectator. I'm also official photographer for Dripping Springs Ranch Park where I shoot rodeo events, and for the University of Texas Longhorn Band.
