David Brown is a photographer with almost 50 years of experience in many phases of photography. He has been a wedding and commercial photographer, a darkroom technician, and a teacher.

Currently, he is concentrating on teaching and lecturing.  He has recurring darkroom workshops at the Dallas Center for Photography.  Link

Brown is equally skilled in both film and digital processes. While he prefers black and white film and the darkroom for monochrome images, all color work is created and printed with digital methods.

After a lifetime of landscapes, architectural and documentary work, Brown now seeks to create photographs that he first “sees” in his mind, rather than capturing a scene that he encounters and documents. As part of that process, he has moved into the studio, and is experimenting with still life, macro, and small abstract setups. He believes that one must never stop learning and moving forward!
