About David Perry Lawrence

I was interested in photography as a child, and my father had even bought me an enlarger so that I could set up a small darkroom in my bedroom at night.

One afternoon in the 5th grade, a large tornado approached Dallas. I rushed home, found my father's 35mm Exacta camera, climbed on the roof, and began taking photos of the tornado. My plan was to develop the film and make prints to sell the next day. Unfortunately, I did not understand any of the settings, and of course the pictures did not come out. So went my first attempt at creating and selling photographs.

When I went off to Yale, I planned on becoming a Nuclear Physicist. Later, an Economist. Then I re-discovered photography, traveling to Europe, the Canary Islands, Morocco, Liberia, and Hawaii taking pictures. Finally, I settled down and worked as a commercial photographer in Dallas for over 30 years. I primarily shot portraits on locations, including many movie stars and had the honor of being hired by their campaigns to photograph Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.

In my 60's I retired to Mexico and began taking pictures there. I was fortunate to have five of my photographs published on

I've been fortunate to be able to count Walker Evans and Jay Maisel among my teachers.

Several years ago, I moved to Greenfield, Wisconsin, outside Milwaukee. It was only in the Spring of 2014, while looking for subjects to photograph, that I discovered wildflowers. Now I am completely hooked on flowers, and feel I have finally found what I was meant to photograph.

I try to make my flower photographs intellectually interesting, often showing the anatomy of the flower, pleasing to the eye, and emotionally soothing. I hope you find them that way.
