Award-winning landscape photographer, David Christopher, was born and raised in San Diego. His photography is self-taught. Like many landscape photographers, he uses a tripod, long exposures and the most important tool in any Landscape Photographer's gear bag....... an alarm clock!

David Christopher began photographing 20 years ago while working and traveling as a fashion model. Shortly after high school, Dave was scouted and signed by the Ford Agency. For the next nearly two decades, he modeled throughout the United States and Canada, as well as Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea. Dave modeled for clients like Armani, Nordstrom, Lee Jeans, Dockers, TYR, Teen Magazine, Adidas and more. He used modeling as a vehicle to travel and experience different countries, their cultures and customs. Living abroad for two to six months at a time, extended travel became a lifestyle and it was then that photography became his passion. Looking to continue this traveling lifestyle, photography took on a new appreciation and purpose. Originally shooting models, he thought he would transition from modeling to fashion photography, and continue within the world of fashion. However, learning Landscape Photography became his passion, and it was during this time that his photography went from being a medium for recording his experiences, to the art of showcasing different places and extraordinary moments.

Today, the memories presented in his photography remain his, but the "Art", images and the emotions these images create, are shared by people worldwide. Dave's limited and open edition fine art prints are purchased by private collectors, art dealers and interior designers throughout the nation. His work has won awards, been juried into some of the nation's top art exhibits and received recognition in San Diego's two major newspapers, The San Diego Union Tribune and The North County Times featured Dave as the cover story in their Sunday Business Section. His work has appeared in magazines, calendars, cards, posters and other photographic gifts and are still available in hundreds of stores across the country.

Having compiled one of the most colorful, most diverse and most comprehensive collections of San Diego photographs in history, David is proud to be able to showcase the city he calls home, San Diego.

"His work stands out in a city that is visited, and loved, by millions from all over the world."
-The San Diego Historical Society
