Dave Markel Photography

Artist Statement

Dave, a Canadian photographer, calls the stunning landscapes of British Columbia his home and canvas.

His primary focus revolves around exploring the captivating wilderness of south central British Columbia, where he dedicates the majority of his time to capturing the intrinsic beauty of nature. Dave's photographic passion spans diverse subjects, from adventures to wildlife and the enchanting night sky, all while keeping an open eye for any compelling subjects that come his way.

His journey began in 2014 with a smartphone camera and has evolved into artistry with a Nikon D7200 and a Sony a6000, armed with lenses ranging from 11mm to 600mm. Photography serves as both a means to share his adventures and a therapeutic outlet, helping him find solace and maintain his mental well-being as he immerses himself in the wilderness to capture fleeting moments.
