About Me

David grew up and worked most of his life in the small rural town of Dunnville, Ontario, which is situated along the banks of the Grand River; a Canadian Heritage River designated in 1994. The river ends at Port Maitland, 7 km downstream from the town and empties into Lake Erie which is part of the Great Lakes Region of Canada and USA. This was David’s playground as a young boy for many seasons spending his free time fishing and exploring the shores of both the Grand River and Lake Erie that provided an abundance of habitat for the beautiful flora and wildlife. David continued to developed his outdoors skills including camping, hiking and canoeing as a young scout, along with his schoolmates; travelling in and around the local and Northern Ontario Lakes, rivers and trails. As David grew up he subscribed to an old and popular geographic magazine and was inspired by the stunning images and articles that explored strange and wonderful landscapes and peoples from around the world. These photographers ultimately motivated David to see the world. David got a job as a photo assistant at a professional Toronto studio where he gained a wealth of experience in camera types and formats, shooting techniques including black & white darkroom processes and preparing simple to elaborate lighting for a variety of studio sets and location sites. David treks included seeing Canada, USA, Caribbean Islands(Bahamas and Jamaica), Hawaiian Islands, South Pacific & Polynesian Islands(Tahiti, Moorea & Bora Bora), Australian Outback & Tasmania, New Zealand, England(Lake District) & Scotland, Europe, France, Switzerland, Germany, Russia(Belarus), Israel and Jordan(Petra). David also has hobbies including woodworking, biblical & ancient studies, survival/bush craft skills, fishing, boating, sailing, down-hill skiing and scuba diving. You can see some of David’s work visiting his YouTube channel where you can watch short slide-shows of his photos, both in colour and black & white, that were taken over the years including some of his newer images — adding more slide-shows periodically. See Link Here: https://www.youtube.com/user/davidjohn316/featured Currently David uses the DSLR Canon 80D, using 18-135 mm, 35 mm macro and 70 - 300 zoom lenses. David also captures images with his iPhones; lately using the Xs. David is still learning the new digital medium but would like go back sometime to using film as well. David hopes to share his photographic work with the Canadian Geographic readers while exploring and capturing Earth’s wonders in the Eternal Light. Stay Tuned ...
