Based on the Isle of Man, Dave has been shooting images since 2004. He contributed photographs and wrote a chapter on Manx history for New Moods of Mann, a coffee-table book documenting life on the island.
In 2008 he was commissioned as an official photographer for the Volvo Ocean Race, spending nine months travelling around the world documenting the racing and the stories of those who made it happen: the sailors and their families, the shore teams and race officials.
His work has been published in outlets as diverse as the The Guardian, The China Daily, the Washington Post, the Singapore Straits Times, Readers Digest and Wired Magazine.
A specialist in fast transmission of images, he was commissioned as a photographer for the 2011 Isle of Man TT Races, providing a live photo stream for the official TT Live website at iomtt.com.
Dave also teaches at 7th Wave RYA sailing centre on the Isle of Man and edits local sailing blog manxsailracer.com.
