Landscape photographer David Townsend based in Kent has been capturing the beautiful Garden of England and her coast line for over thirty years, during the years 2005-09 David took a break from the 9-5 life to solo circumnavigate our world. A voyage that would change his life forever.
On this site you can see his beautiful work where his love of our world can clearly be seen in the art he captures from landscapes, seascapes and most things in-between. His garage became David’s darkroom, a place he says ‘where the magic developed’.
During his solo circumnavigation David’s love of photography was rekindled although more recently and some thirty years since buying his first Canon EOS film camera David moved away from the Canon brand and took the mirror-less plunge when he purchased the FujifilmX-Pro 2.
Being a landscape photographer David was becoming concerned his work was becoming ‘too’ sharp, the image was ‘too’ perfect, today you may notice what some would call ‘noise’ within the some of the images, this is actually a reflection of his move to using the sensor in this camera and its built in film simulations which recreate the love and the imperfections of film yet in this digital age.
His sailing site is www.sail360.info where you can find a week by week account about his four year voyage covering over 38,000 miles, visiting thirty four countries and seventy four ports of call.
