Post-Production and Archiving
Dave is assisted by Brandon Russell, with whom he has worked since 2005. What started as an interest in digital photography has evolved into a partnership in photo organization, professional printing, framing, archiving and photo production.
Post-production of Dave’s photos; printing, mounting, and framing, as well as digital presentation, is an integral part of the creative process. He and Brandon run a print lab from the McCoy’s ranch near Bishop, and local painter and builder Randy Myers produces frames for Dave’s prints.
The process begins with Dave on his Rhino, a side-by-side all-terrain vehicle, and his camera. Several times a week, Dave and Roma venture into the backcountry around Bishop and Mammoth and capture images of the Eastern Sierra’s natural landscapes and wildlife. He then returns home to archive the images into the computer, and the best are selected to be printed and framed, or organized into DVD slideshows and hard-bound books.
Upon completion, the images, slideshows and books are sold by the Mammoth Ski Museum to help fund the Mammoth Lakes Foundation and Cerro Coso Community College in Mammoth. The Mammoth Ski Museum displays a collection of Dave’s art, and 100-percent of the proceeds are donated to the Mammoth Lakes Foundation.
Where can I see or buy Dave’s Photos?
Many of Dave’s photos are on display at the Mammoth Ski Museum, and can be purchased there. The photos there are displayed on a rotating basis, so only a very small portion of his work is displayed at a given time. To purchase other photos of Dave’s not on display there, please contact the Mammoth Ski Museum at (760) 934-6592.
In addition to the exhibit at the Mammoth Ski Museum, Dave’s photography is on display at Bajtala Management Group, in Bishop, Calif., and in Mammoth at Stellar Brew Cafe, Sierra Design Studio, and the LMR Professional Building.
