I am a semi professional photographer based in the beautiful county of Dorset, United Kingdom where I have lived since 1989. I am originally from Croydon but have lived in Crystal Palace, Horsham, Wrington and Weston-Super-Mare before finally settling in Dorset.
Dorset is home to the stunning Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site - if you have never visited, you are missing out.
I am married with three grown up boys which has not always given me the time to devote to my love of photography in the past. I also have a full-time job which does not always allow the time I would like for my photography, but you never know what the future holds.
I enjoy travelling, having visited France, Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, Norway and Scotland in the last few years and most recently, Spain on two occaisions. In the UK, as well as exploring locally in Dorset, Somerset and Wiltishire, I also enjoy exploring Dartmoor in Devon, and finally one of our favourite places of all time - Marazion and South West Cornwall (been here several times).
I have been a photographer since I was a teenager starting with film in both Colour and Black & White, and a good old Praktica camera with 3 lenses. In 2009, I switched to Digital Photography starting with a basic Konica Minolta camera, progressing to Canon APS-C's and finally Canon Full Frame. I still own a film camera (Canon one now) but it has not been out for some time.
In September 2019 I graduated with a Diploma in Photography with the Photography Institute. Studying has opened my eyes to a greater world of photography, from portraiture to macro, wildlife to architecture and travel to sport, all of which are helping me hone my skills and develop as a photographer.
I am looking to hold my first exhibition in 2020 along with my photographer wife, Caroline Pass. We are both also attending various craft events and fairs throughout the year.
Although Landscapes are still my favourite subject, if the mood and opportunity are right, I will photograph anything.
Always up for a challenge and trying something new, I am more than happy to take on commissions and projects.
Above all, my real passion lies in Black & White photography and this is where I am looking to develop going forward, although Colour will always figure in my portfolio.
I hope you enjoy my work. I currently have a very basic website which is in the process of being rebuilt www.davidpassphotography.co.uk
I also have a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/davidpassphotography/
