A born and raised Californian, David H. Collier had the fortune to grow up surrounded by the beauty of the American West. Following a career in music, he attended the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara where photography became the center-point of his life. He was soon winning awards for his dedication, accumulating nine by his third and final year. He had his first solo exhibition at age 23.  He has traveled through North and South America, Europe, China and New Zealand. His work can be found on the walls of homes, businesses and events around the world, including the 2005 Worlds Exposition in Aichi, Japan. Today, David is creating editorial travel, landscape and stock images with an incredible passion inspired by the beauty of the natural world. When not on assignment or traveling, David enjoys spending time with his family, renovating their Auburn, CA home, hiking, woodworking and cooking nutritious homemade meals.
