It's a new year and time for a new Tamron Tuesday profile of another Tamron Image Master.
David Akoubian is in the spotlight today. David is no stranger to SCU and shared a guest post with stunning images in July of 2013, with some great how-to help when it comes to dragging the shutter. Then he joined me on a podcast. What I personally enjoy most about David's work is his focus (pun intended) on the extremes, looking at the landscape in ways we don't see and then zeroing in on the macro world, showing even more of what we miss.
It was no easy task visiting his galleries and picking out my favorite images, because there's pretty much nothing David can't photograph. Take a look for yourself and you'll see what I mean. This is about passion for every subject and every pixel!
On Tamron's Image Masters page David is described as...
David has been photographing for about 40 years and working as a nature photographer since 1993. He specializes in the grand and micro landscape. Having learned his craft from some of the legends of the nature field, his work is the combination of “old school” technical and draws the compositional aspect from his days training as an illustrator. David has been an instructor for 20 years as well, sharing his love and knowledge of photography and nature with students and camera clubs. David’s work has been featured in galleries, calendars, magazines and textbooks. His client list includes but is not limited to: Blue Ridge Country magazine, Nature Photographer Magazine, Birder’s World, PNC Bank, Scholastic Books, The Mountain Conservation Trust of Georgia, Vanguard Photo, and Tamron. His work has been used in advertorial pieces as well in Outdoor Photographer, Audubon Magazine, Shutterbug Magazine as well as other popular photography magazines. David lectures and leads photography workshops and tours across the US.
