Expert Profiles

David Hopley

Based in York, David is a self-taught, award-winning photographer. A background in architecture and graphic design has given him a keen eye for detail and composition. The desire to find the shot in the most mundane or ordinary locations drives his passion.

David's interest in photography started from a very early age. During his employment as a graphic designer he used a dark room to develop prints for use in exhibitions. Frustrated by the lengthy time it took to develop the prints, he quickly fell out of love with rolls of film! The ability to quickly see results in digital photography fast-tracked his trial-and-error approach to self learning.

Recent works have featured in publications such as Outdoor Photography, Amateur Photographer and PhotoPlus.

Photography is the perfect medium to express creativity; the only thing that can hold you back is your imagination.
