My Bio


I’m David O’Dell my friends call me Dave my passion is outdoor photography. I started shooting photography seriously in 2013 when I bought my first digital DSLR camera. Since then photography has consumed my life, I live and breathe photography! I’m constantly looking around my environment to see what would make an interesting image. I’m self-taught. Most of my free time I’m out shooting the Texas countryside landscape or wildlife. Both have their own unique challenges and I love them both equally.

I love getting out into the serenity of the outdoors away from the noise, chaos and stress of city life and just immerse myself in photography, for me it is a great escape from reality. I enjoy every part of photography from exploring new areas that depicts a unique nature scene, to the challenge of capturing that scenes, and processing the images.

My goal as a photographer is to continually learn/develop my skills to produce unique inspirational professional images that bring out emotion, thought, and wonder.
