David Jones was brought up on Loch Tayside in Perthshire where his love of nature began.

He was always interested in photography and bought his first Single Lens Reflex camera when he did a work exchange to Tasmania during their 200th Anniversary year in 1988. Becoming more serious about photography, David found himself becoming equally serious about documenting the Natural World of Animals, Birds and Insects.

He joined Falkirk Camera Club approximately 20 years ago and found a couple of fellow nature enthusiasts who helped him on his journey. When he retired in 2006 he decided to travel round the world for a year so bought his first digital camera. Like all photographers, learning about digital cameras and processing the images was a learning curve, but the fact that he had more time to spend developing his skills while enjoying his travels re-enforced his desire to show off the beauty of our natural environment.

David’s photographs have received Gold and Silver medals in national exhibitions of photography, most recently, the Silver Medal for the best Nature image in the Scottish Photographic Federation Digital Championship in November 2018. He remains actively involved at Falkirk C.C. and is always willing to share his knowledge with other photographers. During the 130 year history of the photographic group in Falkirk, David has won more internal competitions than any other club photographer.
