Hello Dave, what a fantastic collection of galleries.... You have a great eye for photography, and a unique sense of style. I have truly enjoyed going through your photos - the range and variety of topics, the originality of viewpoint, and the quality. Well done, keep it up ! Greetings from Poland. Pawel

more than great, more than brilliant ! a real pleasure to watch your photos ! so much energy, so much freedom in the way you're taking photos ! staggering (époustouflant) It give the feeling that nothing can stop you from taking a picture.

Vincent Belford08-Feb-2005 19:44
I was just scrolling down through your guest book and saw the names of many of the pbase photographers I admire so much. I guess great minds think alike, at least in appreciation or your prodigious talent and unfailing eye.
I look forward to visiting your fabulous galleries again soon.

LarryE 30-May-2004 12:48
It's so refreshing to view your work (I get here frequently from shutterfreaks). It's such a breath of fresh air to see such light work of such serious subjects. I wish I had a fraction of your talent!

I really enjoy looking at your work. It has everything a photographer would want in a image.
Michael 20-Feb-2004 13:55
Dave, I have just discovered your photo's atPBase-the London Street Scenes - They are absolutely fantastic! I am new to Digital Photography and am currently looking at which camera to buy. The enevitable question is "What camera did you use" for these shots - Please dont tell me it is something incredibly expensiveplease!
dom 11-Feb-2004 04:39
dave you have no fear.. Im more shy about street-photography..
Your eye is amazing..
Out of curiousity.. what's your 'walkaround' lens that you use most often?
Your pics are getting better and better, one of these days you must publish a book of these.. you've easily enough excellent stuff here already!

Hi Dave. Thanks for visiting. I really like your approach and your clever titles (boy, you REALLY know how to "freewheel" it). Yours is one of the early entries to my favorites list. But, you have so many pictures and I have such a slow connection. Don't know when I'll make it through all those galleries and pages. I don't think I have 2,000 of EVERYTHING I've done! :-) – Tom

jimmy 02-Dec-2003 18:15
Hello Dave

When I clicked a link at I came on your site and kept on viewing trough your galleries until I saw them all in one time.
I couldn`t believe to see, the hard work of someone who does what I`m trying to do.
I still have a lot to learn :-)
Viewing your pictures keeps me motivated to hang on and do my amount of hours per day on the streets (Brussels) even now when it rains alot and it`s getting cold.

Below I read you are happy with your Powershot G3.
Something I will not deny, being happy also in using mine, but sometimes I get frustrated because it`s so slow and I miss `the moment`. What about you?

Congrats with your Geographic publication and I look forward to see new work from you.

cheers, jimmy
Willa Dios21-Nov-2003 00:11

I had so much fun viewing your galleries! You are very talented and diverse in your subjects. Wonderful entertainment!

Well thank you very much Felix.
A lot of these were taken with a Canon G3 .....A super camera and if you can afford one and your budget allows you you should get one ... you wont be disopointed.
Also ofcourse I post proccess images and that could acount for the color and tone.
More important than any camera is your imagination and that costs nothing !!!!! ........ lol !!!!
Cheers Felix and good luck.

Felix 11-Nov-2003 09:53
Dear Dave:

You are a great artist. I am not no matter which camear you use, you can make the picture you take an art. However, I really like the tone and color of your pictures. I am wondering which camera you use to take the pictures. And can you recommend a consumer digital camera for me? I am thinking of Canon S400, but it can not produce the color and tone shown in your pictures, which are so elegent and pleasant.
Bertil 09-Nov-2003 11:03
Terrific Dave!
Keep it up
John Glines07-Nov-2003 04:34
You have some really great photos. I was most impressed by your mixing color with black & white shots. It works because it's your eye & sensitivity that's the binding force.
Guest 06-Nov-2003 11:11
Dear Dave,
I found your gallery randomly. Your gallery is so great! It's amazing! You let me know what photography is. Actually i am only a 16 year old Hong Kong girl. I want to be a part time photographer. Can u just visit my gallery and give me some comments? Thanks!!
Guest 06-Nov-2003 08:29

inspiring images Dave, u have sharp eyes and a great style. 2 questions.. What camera/s do you use? and, u seem to produce a tremendous amount of these photos; is it too personal to ask.. what do you do for work? Are you a full time photographer, or does you work enable/require a lot of london travel/photo opportunities? Cheers, dom

Hi Dave,

I've only recently joined PBase, but from what I found at random, your stuff is definitely the most inspiring. I wish I could just let my hair down and not worry so much about technique + I wish I had a bit more balls. Keep it up mate!

Anyway, if you fancy a look at mine, it's

All the best
Victor 25-Jun-2003 21:06
Hi dave,

just want to tell you that I love your photo's. I admire the way you create an atmosphere in them. I've only started making photo's myself just a year ago and i'm starting to get the hang of it. I produced quite a few really good ones and the number of good pictures is rising. Now i'm just wishing I had more money to replace my Canon ixus v2.


Guest 09-Jun-2003 08:33

JonS 18-May-2003 00:20
i'm sure you must get asked 100 x per week, but what make/model camera do you use? (or is that an impertinent question) I'm just getting into things and am inspired by your style and view. I know it's not just the camera that takes the picture, but...
Billy Woolfolk 15-May-2003 03:03
Great photos! I loved every one of them. And the way you grouped them and labeled the groups was very entertaining. the_face_touchers Cool!

Dave you've done a tremendous amount of work and it deserves to be seen. I'm putting a link to your gallery on my website...I promote writers and artists, so that more people,at sites other than pbase can see them. I hope this gets you a lot more viewers.
it'll be in the reviews section under accolades.

All the very best.
Guest 28-Apr-2002 05:03
Hi Dave. Wow, great shots here, dozens of them! I am especially fond of your street photos, very keen. I also find your 'conceptual' work very
interesting as well. My favorite right now though, is 'poor mans abucus' (?), don't know why, but I dig it. anyhow, just thought I'd drop in and
say hi. Keep shooting and take care,

Dirk Vermeirre 25-Mar-2002 19:41
Hi Dave,

I'm very impressed. Working every day with images I must say that you have many real great shots in this gallery. I think that nobody can believe that you're only taking pictures from 3 months ago. You realy have the knack and a very good eye for interesting scenes and moods and also a very good eye for compostion. Several of your pictures are much better then some I see published in different magazines. Real great stuff Dave!!!
dave18-Mar-2002 21:18
Hey! Mark....Thanks...Glad you like them.
Glad to have been of assistance,I shall take a look when I get the time and let you know.
Take it easy.
Mark Lane 18-Mar-2002 20:42
Dave, Like your "loose" style of photography i.e shoot anything and everything! Take a look at, 'fraid I'm a bit more rigid :0( Still, let me know what you think, best wishes. By the way, thanks for taking the time to comment on my battery question on DPReview.
