David Adler

David Adler has been taking photographs since he was 8 years old, starting with a Kodak Instamatic X-15 and developing his own black and white prints in a darkroom. Over the years, photography has remained a consuming passion and he rarely goes anywhere without a camera. His work focuses on nature, landscapes and wildlife, although recently his favorite subject is his 9 and a half year old daughter.

David's photographs have won awards and appeared in Smithsonian Magazine, on travel websites, and on the cover of a book published by the Canadian Government.

In addition to photography, David has been designing user interfaces for business applications, consumer electronics devices, and websites since 1990. He enjoys many other creative and artistic hobbies, including woodworking, ceramics, wire mobiles, and baking with chocolate. His travels have taken him to the southernmost city in the world (Ushuaia, Argentina) and the northernmost naturally inhabited community in the world (Qaanaaq, Greenland). He's also been known to travel east and west.
