Hello, my name is David Rogers and I am an over-enthusiastic landscape photographer currently based on the idyllic Sapphire Coast of NSW. I had the great fortune to grow up in one of the small seaside towns on this amazing coast, and spent my youth rock-hopping along unspoiled coastlines and exploring the pristine wilderness areas.
After many years of living and working in cities I returned to focus on my photography. My goal is to capture this spectacular landscape in an intimate way – by watching and understanding how each location reacts under different environmental conditions – whether it be the seasons, sun-angles, swell-size, tide-levels, wind directions, cloud patterns, star trails or moon cycles. For me, loading the backpack with photography equipment and hiking out to shoot sunrise or sunset is the ultimate bliss.
My working background is in publishing, advertising and lifestyle media. I have been extremely fortunate to work with some of the world’s leading brands at Australia's top publishing houses. I hope to combine my two passions – photography & media – to help brands achieve their marketing goals through powerful imagery. I like to take photos which tell stories. Stories which you will be proud to share.
