Welcome to Dave Wright Photography
Who I am & what I work for.
Welcome to Dave Wright Photography, I am a freelance photographer interested in all aspects of modern photography.
My main interests are in Nature, Wildlife, Landscape & more recently Astrophotography, I have spent most of my life in the great outdoors, I have been involved in just about every activity you can do in the outdoors.  Including canoeing, Abseiling, Climbing, Camping, Hiking, Scuba Diving & many others.  I have been a Bushcraft instructor for over 35 years & I am now semi-retired, I never had much time for photography during those early years, but I have now become heavily involved.
I decided to share some of my thousands of photo's, mostly just for the sake of sharing them, but also to hopefully inspire others to grab their cameras & go out into the world & capture everything & anything. 
Some photos were taken early on & maybe far from professional quality, but this site is more about my journey in photography & not to earn awards.... I hope you enjoy the few I have shared with you all.

Dave Wright
This is me, I am no spring chicken, with the wear & tear of my active life is beginning to show, I hav slowed down a lot these days but I try to get out as much as possible to take more photo's, partake in a bit of fishing & metal detecting.  I have taken thousands of photo's over time but not all of them make it into my portfolio.  One of my problems is that I do not like to delete any photo's unless they are really badly blurred etc... So there may be a few snaps that find there way onto the website (sorry).  My most recent venture is into astro-photography, I found that the dark winter nights were being wasted, so I started taking photo's of the night skies.
Sharon Wright
This is my wife Sharon, without whom I would not have been able to do many of the things I get up to, she has taken care of me & inspired me to carry on, letting me spend money on new gear without complaint, & helped me through those darker days were everything seems to go wrong. She encourages me to carry on & makes my life so much easier.  We have been married 35+ years and the bond gets stronger with each day
My Dog Max
The latest in a long line of rescue dogs that we have had the pleasure of sharing our home & our lives with, each one had their own charactors & quirks, each one brightening our days with their unconditional love, companionship & hairs all over everything.   Max is a lovely, very mild temptered, crazy German Shepherd, he is also one of my models for photography, as was all of the other dogs we have looked after. Max certainly shows up when the camera is out, you will see his loopy antics on Instagram, he has a very photogenic face & is very cheeky.
Past Shoots
I have been on a good number of photoshoots & road-trips over the past few years, Some have been theme related & others just random shoots depending on my location & reason for being there, from beachs to fields, towns & gardens.  I will post random selections of some of the many photo's taken on these trips.
I will try to change them regularly, until I develop the site to hold more permanent galleries.
Next Shoots
I have a countryside shoot coming up this spring.
Also some beach shoots during the summer.
I will be active while on holiday later in the year.
And I have a number of astrophotography shoots spread over the year, unfortunately, these are weather dependant.  Judging by the weather over the last couple of months, I cannot even guess when these will take place.
Upcoming Road-trips
I am expecting to go on a south coast trip, starting from Ilse of Sheppey in North Kent, right around the coastline to Cornwall, full of whistlestop shoots & taking in scenery, nature & wildlife, and if I am blessed with some clear night skies then maybe a few star photo sessions.
I am hoping to squeeze in a trip to the Welsh hills & Loch Ness in Scotland.
Watch out Nessie !!....
