He has written a total of eight travel guidebooks about hiking and kayaking in the San Francisco Bay Area and Cape Cod. His articles about travel, adventure sports, and photography have appeared in many newspapers and magazines. In addition to his writing and editing, David has had a long career as a professional photographer. His publication credits include magazines such as the American Bar Association Journal, Audubon, Backpacker, Entrepreneur, Forbes, Information Week, Sierra, Smithsonian, and Sunset, and books such as San Francisco: The City’s Sights and Secrets (Chronicle Books), The World of Shorebirds (Sierra Club Books), and Cape Cod on My Mind (Falcon Publishing). David’s stock photography is represented by Photo Researchers and its worldwide affiliates.

For many years, David taught photography and business practices for photographers at City College of San Francisco, UC Berkeley Extension, and the Academy of Art College. He was also a staff writer for Photo District News, the leading trade publication for professional photographers. David writes two columns per month for the online magazine Black Star Rising: “Notes from the VisCom Classroom” deals with educational issues, and “Eye on Image-Making” is about professional photography, videography, and multimedia.

Born and raised in New York City, David attended Columbia University and received a BA degree in English in 1970. After graduating, he moved to Portland, Oregon, where he worked for a weekly newspaper and studied photojournalism at Portland State University and color photography at Portland Community College. In 1974, he began work at the Oregon Journal, a daily newspaper in Portland. He worked for the next eight years as a staff photographer on newspapers in Portland and Salem, including the Oregonian and the Statesman-Journal.

In 1980, David began accepting freelance photography assignments, building a clientele that included advertising agencies, corporations, graphic designers, magazines, newspapers and public relations firms. In May, 1987, David moved his photography and writing business to San Francisco. In October, 2003, he and his wife, Maggi Morehouse, a professor of history, relocated to Aiken, S.C.
