So who is Dave?
I’m David O’Dell my friends call me Dave my passion is outdoor photography. I started shooting photography seriously about five years ago when I bought my first DSLR camera. 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 outdoor portraits. Both have their own unique challenges and I love them both equally.
There are times I love getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life. There’s something about getting out in nature with the challenge of capturing some of the amazing Texas countryside beauty. I like the quietness and serenity of the countryside especially late at night. I enjoy the challenge of scoping out an area to find a vantage point that depicts a unique scene of the Texas countryside.
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.
I use Nikon! Nikon holds a close spot to my heart; my first camera was Nikon FT2 a gift from my parents the summer before starting high school. I have never shot with anything else but Nikon. But I know Cannon and others have great equipment. Here is what I usually have in my bag for a typical outdoor adventure.
