Dave Goodrich has been photographing nature for over 35 years. In the 1970’s, he was an early adapter of the Cibachrome direct positive process for color printing, moving on to digital scanning and giclee printing of his images in the late 1990’s. Today, all of his work is captured digitally, using Nikon D700 and D800 camera bodies and printed with Epson 4000, 3800 or 2400 printers. Epson pigment inks and Hannemuhle or Epson fine art papers assure the highest quality archival prints available.
Dave has been fortunate to have studied with several contemporary masters of photography, including George DeWolfe, George Lepp, Tim Cooper, Rod Planck and Alison Shaw. His work appeared in a special edition of “Black and White” magazine in October, 2012, and has received numerous first place and “best of show” awards at competitions including the Indiana State Fair, (one of the nation’s larger juried competitions), the Virginia Highlands Festival in Abingdon, VA and Art on the Green in Lexington, VA. Dave’s photography is included in the corporate collections of Citizens Energy Group in Indianapolis, IN, the Indiana University Health system and at Carilion Stonewall Jackson Hospital in Lexington, VA.
Dave is a native of Michigan, and is a graduate of the University of Michigan and of the University of Virginia, where he received a MBA degree in 1973. After a career in banking, commercial real estate and economic public policy work, he retired in 2005 to homes in Rockbridge Baths, VA and Vero Beach, FL. Today, he delights in spending more time with his wife, Julie, and their daughter and son, in addition to developing a more focused commitment to his photographic pursuits. Professionally, he remains active as a director one of the nation’s largest healthcare systems and one of its largest mutual life insurance companies. He also serves as the chairman of the University of Michigan’s Library Leadership Committee.
During 2013, Dave Goodrich’s work will be exhibited in Vero Beach, FL at the Vero Beach Museum of Art’s January “Art by the Sea” exhibit, in Lexington, VA, at “Art on the Green” in May and at the Bath County Art Show in Hot Springs, VA in July. Additionally, his work may be found at the Lexington Artists’ Co-op in Lexington, VA (www.lexingtonartistsco-op.com), where selected images are on continuous display.
