Born in the UK David Mayhew initially studied for a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering Design. His sense of adventure took him on a 19 months exploration in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Hawaii and hitch-hiking across Canada. It wasn’t until David moved to Turin, Italy working for FiatAuto that the advent of digital photography first caught his eye. In 2003 David decided to bail out of the 9 to 5 environment and delve head first into photography, taking on studies in photography at the College of DuPage near Chicago where he also joined forces with their meteorology program gaining sufficient knowledge to forecast severe weather for storm chasing.
David has seen some unique and beautiful sights including the largest ever recorded tornado (2.6 miles wide in El Reno Oklahoma May 2013) and even putting himself in precarious situations! Now based in Colorado by the foot hills of the Rocky Mountains David is ideally located for heading East out to tornado alley or West to explore the mountains or the landscapes of the South West.
The draw of the night skies offers up great opportunities for creativity that have enabled David to expand his work into new realms. David strives to continue making new and remarkable images of Skyscapes as well as create unique presentation styles of his work.
