About David Steel

David started photography many years ago and has a strong darkroom background.  His work these days is predominantly digital for convenience.  His day job is in IT and so photography remains \ mostly leisure pursuit although he takes it seriously.  David is an active member of Cambridge Camera Club and he lectures and judges at camera clubs throughout East Anglia and beyond.

If there is one genre he enjoys it is street photography or photojournalism and he particularly enjoys capturing people in their natural environment.  He also has a liking for monochrome photography and the two go together well.  He says “perhaps it is because we associate photojournalism with the gritty photographs seen in the newspapers years ago or the reportage work reproduced in the long defunct Picture Post magazine.  Maybe it’s because monochrome can better portray a feeling or mood or perhaps it’s our imagination that makes a monochrome image what we want it to be without the colour of reality pre-empting our thoughts”.

You will see a strong people theme throughout David’s work although he enjoys most forms of photography from natural history to landscape.  However, he says “it's still people that tick the box for me”.  He makes no excuses for it – people are all around us and it’s people that make the world go round
