David M. Haupt began his interest in photography as a way to share his love for the west. As a child he would annually travel to Colorado and the wonderful Rocky Mountains. It was there that his passion for landscape photography began. Nothing pleased Dave more than returning home with photographs that were received with the same emotion as he had when he was making them.

Dave took some time off from photography to pursue other interests which included training dogs for competitive obedience. It wasn’t until a few years back on a photo safari in Yellowstone National Park that the passion returned. While freezing cold, Dave decided then that photography was an interest he would develop.

In the next few years Dave would; attend classes in photography, take part in numerous photographic workshops nationwide, and read anything he could about photography with an emphasis on landscape photography. Also during these years, Dave with his wife Carla would travel to national parks throughout the United States honing both his skills and personal style. As his skills developed so did Dave’s interest on other photographic opportunities which he continues to develop today.
