David Bigwood

Publisher info

I am originally from the UK and am now a resident of the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, Australia. I have been a regularly published writer and photographer for many years with many articles published in Australian Photography, Australian Camera and Better Photography (Australia). My work has appeared in well over sixty publications, mainly in Australia and the UK. I also founded and edited The Black and White Enthusiast magazine when I represented the UK publisher Creative Monochrome in Australia. This magazine was eventually sold and has since become Silvershotz. I also wrote a column on freelancing for the UK magazine F2 Freelance + Digital and have interviewed a number of leading photographers including Charlie Waite, considered the doyen of landscape photographers in the UK.
I have qualified as a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS) with a panel of black and white prints and am a member of the Australian Society of Authors. My photographs are sold through Alamy and fine art prints are available through Zenfolio (www.davidbigwood.zenfolio.com).
I am happy to do my best to answer reader's questions (dbigwoodphotography@bigpond.com).
