David Lee Myers - I photograph Columbia River Skies (recent Views From Home exhibit), coastal rainforests, butterflies, and more pleasures. Why? To share comfort and joy in the world, to share loving it, commiting to it, and caring for it.

In 1963 I went to the University of California expecting to become a scientist. Inspired by an Ansel Adams book, I also studied fine arts photography with Dave Bohn and Roger Minick, and left Berkeley with degrees in mathematics and an abiding love and commitment to photography.

In 1970, following the romance of the “back to the land” movement, I settled in very rural Washington near Astoria. Today I work as an independent artist and teach photography in the Art Department at Clatsop Community College. I enjoy teaching workshops and giving presentations, especially those where art joins natural history.

I have been photographing Pacific Northwest landscapes and natural history for over 40 years, during which I’ve lived in the Columbia Pacific region.

I also am a founding member of Con Amici Chamber Players, performing violin and viola in classical music concerts and events. Some of my love of music shows up in photographs!

"I have never come to this site before, but i must say...I'm glad I did. These pictures
capture the alluring vibrance that you have so well taken. "


--Esther Wiegardt
"I now know what my next step is: to take a photography class with you as the instructor. This is amazing, beautiful work that captures the elegance of creation and honors it. Thank you for sharing your talent."

--Angela Baumgartner
"Beautiful work! "Returning To Dust" is a daring picture--I've never seen any other photograph quite like it. It respects the cycle of life and death while centered on a very popular icon of "aliveness": butterflies with their color and flight. It's moving to be given the whole picture--greying as well as colorful, dying as well as living. "

--Carolyn Dunn
