About David Culp
David grew up in the southeastern US spending much of his free time surrounded by nature in the mountains, lakes and streams of North Carolina and Tennessee. Always eager to share his adventures from the most recent camping or hiking expedition, he settled on nature photography as his medium.
Inspired by his family’s love for travel, he has been fortunate enough to visit 49 US states, always looking to experience what each has to offer for landscape and wildlife photography. Later in life he began traveling internationally visiting and photographing over 25 countries. Inspired by exposure to different cultures and a vast array of wilderness, he attempts to convey his experiences through the camera lens. David strives to delivery imagery that tells a story, immersing the viewer into the scene, while maintaining a realism that is often missing in today’s photography.
David was recently named as one of 42 Awesome Photographers by Photoshelter, one of the leading distributors of photographs to the commercial and print industry.
He continues to pursue the perfect image while striving to live by the words of his favorite quote:
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”
