Travel, Culture, Lifestyle, & Documentary

Since 2019, I’ve been posting to @writtenbydave as a personal photojournal, the world as I see it through my camera. Here you’ll find travel & street photos, candid portraits, event photography, & a little bit of nature & life photography, often exploring themes in extended photo series. Come along as I journey through life in search of new stories to tell!

A Point & Shoot Adventure in Guatemala

In 2019, I traveled for nearly two months through Guatemala. I challenged myself during this trip to focus on the basics of photography composition & make great photos with just a cheap Nikon CoolPix point & shoot. See the entire collection at Experiencia Guatemalteca, and let me know what you think!

I’m currently NC-based, working mostly between the Raleigh-Durham area & the Outer Banks, but I love to travel, and I’d be happy to travel for the opportunity to work with you!
