Fullagar, David

fullagar-portrait-125.jpgDavid's interest in photography began at age 10 when he spent summers with an uncle who was an avid landscape photographer. He would get up at dawn to row around the lakes and rivers surrounding his home in the UK looking for photographs. David's uncle used a big mahogany Thornton Pickard Ruby Relex camera that took half plate (3¼" x4¼") glass negatives. Eventually David acquired his own camera, a folding Zeiss Nettar, and he's been photographing ever since.

All David's early work was in black and white using medium format equipment. Having recently switched to digital, he still prefers black and white because, for David, it allows more freedom of expression. His favorite subjects include historic buildings and intimate landscapes, often including figures to add human interest and scale. David's other passion, sailing, also influences his photography in that he is drawn to marine subject matter.

 

On A Personal Note:

I first met David when I was teaching a photography workshop in Tuscany. David was fairly quiet, but confident. Unlike many students, he was there to learn and take photographs. He didn't feel the need to prove to anyone that he could make fine pictures. David went about his work methodically and with great precision. When I saw some of the pictures I was very impressed. So I asked to see more. When I saw the full scope of David's work I asked if he'd like to show and sell his work through Le Fotografie. I'm extremely pleased he said, "Yes."
