Thanks for coming to my page folks!

My name's Dave, 30 from Calgary Alberta Canada.

Outspoken. Opinionated. Unique. I'm a chef by trade, but my interests are many; music (music is my passion, and once I've gotten my Journalism degree I plan to travel around and review the bands I love), sports, traveling, reading (science fiction mainly, but I love biographies, fantasy, and anything by Anthony Burgess, who I cannot really classify), cooking, movies, writing (poetry, short stories and music reviews, when I have the time), hiking, nature & the outdoors, partying, and meeting new people.

I will talk to anyone and am a firm believer in karma, which seems to have served me well over the course of my life.

Want to get to know me better? Feel free to drop me a line on flickr, send me an email, or even add said email address to MSN Messenger.

Live life to the fullest and make the most of your time on this planet!

    "Over the past 6 months, I have had the wonderful pleasure of getting to know Dave and his photography work. It began when he posted a group award on an image that I shot at a Halloween party and then later came back and left a personal comment. That kind act sparked my interest in this then unknown-to-me photographer but soon to be friend.

    Since them, I've come to know that he has a passion and an enthusiasm for photography that is truly contagious. The comments that he liberally shares with his contacts are both eloquently worded (he has a superb vocabulary) and detailed. Such comments elude to his keen insight to the art of photography and his ability to analyze a photo in a way that few can or do.

    No subject seems to be immune from his probing lens. Through his photography, Dave shares his love for Calgary, his dogs, nature, lakes, rivers, sunsets and life. However, this whirlwind of subjects doesn't stop there! It seems everything catches his eye, including various displays in stores and museum, chess pieces with light glinting off of them, flowers, insects… you name it! If any amount of light, be it ambient or artificial, it is fair game for Dave! Quite honestly, I suspect that if people who know him see him without a camera in his hands, they wouldn't recognize him!

    Dave has a good eye for composition and color… and he loves to experiment with these. One only has to look a short way through his photo stream and read a few of his images' descriptions to know that he is equally as passionate about post processing.

    Dave has a bright future ahead of him and is someone to keep your eye on. I'm looking forward to seeing how his photography evolves as he takes on new subjects, new techniques and even new cameras! Getting to know Dave is like getting to know a friend for life.

    All of my best to you, Dave, always!

    "Dave is one fantastic photographer. The skill & dedication to the perfect image is apparent in each and every piece of work that he uploads.

    I can also say that Dave is as friendly as he is talented. He will always leave positive comments, advice and help for others and I as a beginner really enjoy that he is willing to do this for myself and others.

    Check out his photostream. You will definitely not be disappointed!"

    "This man knows his music! Going through his photostream is a constant joy because you never know what gems you are going to unearth. I admire him, envy him and, at times, am jealous of him because he has such a stunning music collection but then I remember - anyone who appreciates music in such diversity AND is a dedicated photographer as well has to be a great guy.
    Thanks for sharing your music with the world - lets hope it inspires more to do the same."
