David has lived in Peachtree Corners for 32 years. Once he retired in 2014, he took up photography as a hobby, with an emphasis on nature photography. He also enjoys canoeing, hiking, trips to the Smokies, and volunteer work with the Gwinnett County Juvenile Court’s Youth Diversion Program. That initiative gives first-time youthful offenders a chance to start over with a clean slate rather than getting embroiled in the justice system. He also enjoys tackling photo and video projects for his friends and family, especially his two great-nephews up in North Carolina. David is Vice President of the PCPC.
I try to use my camera and other tools to convey some of the wonder of nature and to give viewers a new look at familiar sights. In some cases, I like to get a close-up view of animals to discover something new about them and perhaps inspire viewers to pay more attention to the natural world.
