About Me


Hi, I'm Dave Shipper

Hi there & welcome!  Who am I you ask?  Well, I'm a professional photographer living in Savannah, Georgia.  I enjoy exploring many different photographic genre, but have a special interest in fine art landscapes.   

Photography was a part of family life growing up.  My Dad loved photography and a home darkroom was a permanent fixture in our home.  Rarely without a camera, I took a lot of pictures as a child and admit that with very few exceptions, they were all bad!  

But those early family influences coupled with the dramatic images of landscapes and wildlife in publications such as National Geographic and Life Magazine fueled the dream of becoming an accomplished photographer. By 16, I had attended workshops offered by the local photography studio and graduated from using an automatic camera to one of Dad’s old 35mm rangefinders. 

With a true love of nature, I chose to pursue a career outdoors, studying wildlife conservation at Louisiana Tech University.  My interest in photography remained however, and at Christmas during my first year of college, my parents gave me a 35mm Minolta camera. It was the best Christmas gift I've ever received and truly a gift that would keep on giving! 

In 1983, after college graduation and a wedding, my wife & I moved to Beaufort, South Carolina.  Launching headlong into married life, careers and eventually, raising children, photography took a back seat for a while.  Eventually, our kid’s involvement in sports rekindled my photographic passion and there’s been no looking back. Motivated to hone the craft, I once again followed in Dad’s footsteps, enrolling in The New York Institute of Photography, completing their course in professional photography.  

I currently show my work at galleries in Beaufort, SC and Hot Springs, AR, and travel the southeast attending juried fine art shows.  My photographs have won numerous awards and hang in private collections throughout the United States and in Europe.  In addition to my work in fine art photography, I provide photography instruction and professional digital photo printing.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
