Dave Prothero has been taking photos for the past 16 years. He first picked up a camera in Canmore, AB where he was doing a 3 month outdoor course. From there he travelled to Nepal for 2 months, after his 2nd season as a commercial fisherman off the West Coast of BC.
From there Dave continued with his travelling. Working and moving through numerous countries. He returned from his travels to work in the Comox Valley, would save money for the next journey. He did slideshows of his travels to local high school tourism classes, which started his path down mixing story telling and photography.
Working as a Guide, Kayaker and Photographer, amongst other professions, has provided Dave with the opportunity to travel and photograph through 26 countries on 6 continents. During this time Dave has seen and photographed many interesting and unique locations. Whether it is a wedding in Galicia, a rafting trip down the Brahmaputra river in Arunchal Pradesh, India, a portrait session in the Comox Valley, Dave will be prepared.
Dave has continued to research and increase his photography skills and refine his style. Recently he attended a seminar with renowned photographer Joe McNally. Dave hopes you enjoy the visit.
