David Newton - Profile
As long as he can remember David has had a love for nature. Coupled with living by the sea, this led him to a degree in Marine Biology at Bangor University. As enjoyable as this degree was, he quickly realised that was not where his future lay.
He bought a camera, spent as much time as possible learning about photography and taking pictures, and when his degree finished in 2001 found a post-graduate MSc in Biological Photography and Imaging. One intensive year of photography and science later, he jumped into the photographic industry.
He became picture editor at one of the most widely respected wildlife picture libraries in the world, representing some of the top wildlife photographers currently working around the world, and owned (at that time) by world renowned wildlife photographer Stephen Dalton.
A year or so later and it was time to move again. A natural flair for the more technical aspects of photography and a love of the Canon EOS system saw him up sticks and move to Oxfordshire to take up a post as the Technical Editor of EOS Magazine, a subscription only publication with an international circulation of a little over 20,000.
That was in 2004 and while he has moved on as technical editor, he still continues to write about photography in a freelance capacity. He has expanded his teaching and can be found regularly giving advice on the finer aspects of photography to both amateurs and professionals he comes in contact with. He keeps this training side separate from this site, which is here only to serve as a gallery of David’s photography.
Although wildlife, landscapes and travel photography were his first love and still what he prefers to do, these days he can be found photographing almost anything, from product shots and commercial work to abstract close-ups, portraiture and event photography. The only area he steadfastly refuses to get involved in is wedding photography…!
Recognised for his technical knowledge and approach to photography, David is often sought out by major photographic companies including Canon and SanDisk to provide a variety of services including training seminars, live presentation, technical expertise and photographic/video services.
David’s photography and writing has been widely published. Among others, he has written for:
Canon Professional Network
PhotoPlus – Canon Edition
He has also written technical and marketing material for both Canon and SanDisk.
His photography has been published in all the above magazines as well as specialist publications such as Country Life and BBC Wildlife and the national press including The Times, The Telegraph, The Daily Mail, The Express and The Sun. He has also done his time as an event photographer, photographing some of the more eclectic and eccentric shows in the UK.
