Untouched nature by David Schultz

Today, David is a suc­cess­ful pho­tog­ra­ph­er whose images are pub­lished in pop­u­lar pub­li­ca­tions around the world such as Nation­al Geo­graph­ic, Trav­el & Leisure, Islands and many oth­ers, but he was once only a 13-year-old teenag­er who was diag­nosed with juve­nile dia­betes.

Then David had to rad­i­cal­ly recon­sid­er his views on life and he sud­den­ly caught him­self on how much he likes the beau­ty of untouched nature. Such thoughts gave him an incen­tive to look for some­thing new and, of course, cap­ture it on film, so it is not sur­pris­ing that, hav­ing received his first 35 mm cam­era, David soon found him­self in pho­tog­ra­phy, and after a while even began to teach this amaz­ing art.

At the age of 22, Schulz decid­ed to take the path of a fash­ion pho­tog­ra­ph­er and did this for 7 years, after which, in 1987, he closed his stu­dio and moved to the qui­et alpine town of Heber, where he still lives.

In 1990, David began releas­ing lim­it­ed edi­tions of his most suc­cess­ful work, and in the fall of 1998, he opened his own pho­to gallery, West Light Images, in Park City, Utah.
