Dave Waite is a nature and fine arts photographer whose images express his personal creativity and unique view of nature and the world around him. His work is striking and evocative, realistic and ethereal. Trained as a photographer in the early '70s, he worked doing freelance commercial photography for a number of years then left that profession, to pick it up again as a creative outlet in 2003. His accomplishments include his 2005 & 2011 selection in the Mohawk Hudson Regional and 2011 Albany Photo Regional, honorable mentions at the Villagers Stockade Art show in 2005 and 2008, as well as the 2006 Rexford Art Show & 2008 Bethlehem Art Association member show. He won first prize in the photography category at the 2008 & Best of Show in 2011 in the Hagaman Annual Autumn Art Show, Hagaman, NY. As a member of the Bethlehem Art Association, Dave has taught Creative Photography and given hands-on workshops on various aspects of the subject.
My Artist Statement says it best:
"For as long as I can remember I
have been fascinated by detail, especially detail in nature. My
introduction to photography in my early teens offered me the ability to
capture that detail and share it with others. With taking on adult
responsibilities I set the activities of a photographer artist aside for
a season. A number of years ago the desire to express myself creatively
again came to the forefront. The greatest lesson that I learned during
this time away from my art is that creativity is never really lost, and
will be there when the time is right for it to blossom again.
