David Neff, Cape Coral, Florida Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement As a teenager, my mother bought me my first 35mm camera for my birthday. I captured my first inspirational image and knew then and there that I had a hidden talent for photography, but no idea what to do with it. I honestly, to this day, still do not know what to do with that talent, as I am not a professional photographer. I'll admit that I have worked in the photographic industry for over 10+ years now on the other side of the fence printing pictures and also as a service technician for one of the world's largest manufacturers of mini-lab equipment. I've decided that it is my time to show the world what I like to call "my vision". By combining a love for traditional photography and the ability to digitally manipulate images into what my mind sees them as, I am able to create digital art that expresses "my vision". Through my images I hope to create a peaceful moment in time in such a hectic and chaotic world.
Last year, just one month prior to his first birthday, my son Donovan was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes . Since that life-changing day I have been inspired to try and make a difference in his life and those affected by Type 1 Diabetes. 10% of all sales through this web site are donated directly to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International in hopes of finding a cure for this disease.
I hope that you enjoy my images and I thank you in advance for your support.
