Artist Profile

Dave Donnelly

Dave Donnelly’s photographic roots go back to when he was given a Kodak Duaflex which he still has today and is about his age!

His real passion began in the film era shooting and developing his own black and white images, which may explain his predilection for that style today.

His collection of film cameras is ever-growing, as he turns to more traditional styles of photography in his artistic ventures, including polaroids. Less conventional styles and abstract forms are becoming subjects in their own rights in Dave’s practice. Looking for tone, texture, contrast and patterns are the inspiration for his images.


Dave is an active member of several Midland based photography groups and enjoys helping people develop their craft.
