Born in Pittsburgh, PA, I took a keen interest in photography back in 1986. The catalyst? The appearance of Halley's comet. As an avid astronomer, I wanted to capture the comet on film, and I did just that.

That first venture into the world of photography lead to many classes, and countless images, during my high school years followed by acceptance into Ohio University's prestigious School of Visual Communications. While attending OU I developed my love and appreciation for capturing a moment in time. Unfortunately my path into a photography career would take a detour upon completion of my BFA.

Happily that detour, many years in the worlds of graphic design and marketing, recently came to an end. I'm taking this opportunity to reignite my passion for both photography and the outdoors and its inhabitants. My goal is to capture nature and landscape images that you would be proud to display on the walls of your home, office or business. Be sure to check my other galleries as well for more unique imaging such as cityscapes.

Please browse the galleries and feel free to comment on the photos. You'll see "featured products" on each photo's individual page. Here you'll find prints, canvas wraps, a digital download and other options for purchase. Feel free to contact me at david@davidpugsleyphoto.com if there is something you are looking for that is not offered. I'll be happy to assist you with your search.
