My name is David Forster and my fascination with photography began when I signed up for an elective photography course in high school. The first time I saw a image that I had taken appear on photo paper in the darkroom I knew that I was hooked.
That next summer between my sophomore and junior year in high school I worked a summer job bagging grocery's at a local super market. I saved all the money from that job to purchase my first camera and several lenses. That first camera was a Canon AE-1. It was a fully manual camera, meaning that I had to dial in the correct aperture and shutter speed in order to get the needle in the camera to give me a correct exposure.
I was fortunate enough to have been raised in the small mountain community of Quincy, California. Quincy is located at the northern end of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It was in Quincy that I was able to photograph a wide variety of different landscape scenes such as high mountain lakes, rivers and forests.
Today like a lot of other photographers I have crossed over to the digital age. I am strong believer in embracing the technology that is available to further enhance my own photography.
I look forward to meeting you either at a art show or as a participate at one of my workshops.
