“Through my photography I hope to inspire people to become more diligent in making balanced choices concerning our natural environment and historical landmarks. Our world is very precious. We must constantly educate ourselves on better and more productive ways to utilize the earth’s limited resources while still preserving its wilderness and natural beauty. My hope is that future generations will be able to find places to see and experience the Creator’s handiwork” – David Lawrence
David’s curiosity has been fueled by a degree in environmental biology and extensive travel on assignment. He sees our world as a giant collage made up of unlimited small elements. His work ranges from large-scale panoramic landscapes to detailed macro views. Sometimes looking at the “whole scene” and other times studying the geometry and colors found in the details.
Ever evolving, David’s photographic career has journeyed from the world of corporate clients and international picture agencies to creating murals and artwork from his personal image collection.
From being published on the covers of Time Magazine, Business Week and annual report covers for McDonalds and URS, to more recently having murals and wall art installed in hospitals, embassies and corporate boardrooms.
He focuses on images that help bring a sense of tranquility and calm for people in high stress environments (nature scenes like gardens, beaches, woodlands, lakes, skyscapes and mountainscapes). These high-resolution images (panoramic & traditional format) are created especially for large-scale wall art projects using Fuji 617 panoramic cameras (film) along with Hasselblad and Canon (digital) cameras.
David is an active member of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA), American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) and holds Board positions for The Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation and The Professional Association of Visual Artists (PAVA).
