Dave Berry is a wonderful photographer who has kindly shared his knowledge and very special images with our blog over the years. Our post today will send you to his personal website where you can enjoy some delicious images.
Here is his story:
"My name is David Berry and I have been a photographer for about 40 years and Photography has been a lifelong passion of mine since I first picked up a camera. My journey actually started when I was 10 years old when my parents gave me a Brownie Camera. As an adult my Photo Safari has taken me all over the world including the sidelines of the USC Football Team with my longtime friend Arnold Frankel a 50 Year Team Photographer at USC.
My hard drive is filled with over 50,000 images of family, strangers, events, street life, weddings, portraits, concert images and friends. These are just my 'keepers' and over the years I have used about 30 camera's to take these shots.
See, I am a 'photo enthusiast' as well as a passionate photographer. I have been fortunate to use NIKON and LEICA Camera's to capture my passions of Wildlife, People and Landscape images along with Street Photography.
I am often asked why photography is so important to me. My immediate response is that taking pictures is just plain fun and a great creative release for my busy life. It provides a beautiful window to nature and the world. I feel my life as a Photographer has been a blessing of grace, from God.
Photographs cross barriers of age, language and culture; connecting people to one another and touching their minds and hearts. My Camera is my tool for storytelling, recording life as I see and experience it. A photograph is always looked at -- Seldom looked into. As Ansel Adams said so often 'Sometimes I feel I get to places just when God's ready to have someone click the Shutter'.
