This is the Blog of the Durham-based Travel Photographer David Lewins.
Professional Travel Photographer living in County Durham, North East UK, David has always had an interest in photography since his early Art College days at the University of Sunderland. In the past two years David has been commissioned for travel brochure work in Nepal, The Canary Islands and Italy which has alowed him to concentrate on the area of landscape photography for which he is passionate about. He has also worked with several local agencies to produce landscape images suitable for promotional and commercial use.
Although David is skilled in computer technology and software such as Photoshop, he firmly believes that “Getting it Right” in the camera is the most important stage in producing good photography. Photoshop may certainly add something to an image but should not be used to correct it or compose it.
David has over 25 years experience in photography. The images displayed in his portfolio reflect some of the understanding which he has for most subjects which include Landscapes, Architecture, Wildlife & Nature. In November 2009 he was awarded a Licentiateship with the Royal Photographic Society. He has also been published in a number of magazines, calendars and travel brochures.
