David Palermo: “My interest in photography started in 8th grade when I saw my first black and white photograph appear in a tray in a darkroom. It was magic! I then discovered Ansel Adams’ work and I got even more absorbed in it. In fact I sold 2 of the 3 autographed Ansel Adams books I had in order to purchase my first camera. My main passion is creating landscape photographs in black and white. I also photograph homes, people, museums, retail, as well as resorts, and even aircraft. I do that kind of work to support my fine-art landscape photography.”
