David Wollin is a resident of Port Washington and has been an avid photographer since he was a teenager with a basement darkroom.
Growing up on Long Island, his love of the water, sailing, and water sports made these subjects his early favorites. Getting his first SLR opened up new vistas, and increased his interest in capturing beautiful scenes and important life cycle moments. The camera went everywhere with him.
David studies photography under the tutelage of Josef A. Schneider, the renowned portrait and child photographer. He also learned underwater photography from David Doubilet, now contributing Photographer-in Residence at National Geographic.
“As a Photographer I am thrilled when dramatic lighting, vivid colors, lines, and shapes combine with my subjects to produce eye-catching and memorable images. Being a sailor has enabled me to visualize, experience, and capture many beautiful and dynamic maritime scenes. Getting the terrific photo that tells a story, generates emotion, or shows the beauty of our surroundings is always exciting and challenging.”
