AboutA Colorado native and passionate traveler, Dave has been taking photos since he was a kid in the 1980s starting with a Kodak 110 film camera and then soon after with a Pentax K1000, 35mm camera. While photographing for the Arapahoe High School newspaper and yearbook, he developed an interest in photographing lightning storms and wildlife. Receiving yearly scholarships, Parsons took additional photography and television production classes, graduating from the University of Colorado at Denver, advancing his career into broadcast video, medium and large format photography. He continued to shoot photos and video throughout a long career working in the .gov, .com and .org internet landscape while winning numerous photography awards along the way.
