About the Artist

David J. Kelch is a graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology School of Photographic Arts and Sciences, where he attended with benefit of a competitive scholarship from the Photographic Society of America and received first place in the thesis competition from the Society of Photographic Instrumentation Engineers. Inspired by his father, his interests in serious photography began at age 12 and developed rapidly, enabling him to support himself through college. He has been actively involved in the development and scientific application of digital imaging systems for almost 40 years. During his career, he pioneered technological developments in conventional photography and digital imagery processing software, as well as in digital infrared, thermal, multispectral, hyperspectral, and polarimetric imaging. Mr. Kelch holds several patents and has hundreds of publications to his credit in the digital imaging field.

Recent developments in professional digital photographic technology have rekindled his passion for imaging nature and wildlife. Mr. Kelch now applies his skills in digital imaging to those subjects he enjoys most -- his family and the flora and fauna in our environment.

Methods of Production

All images are patiently captured with professional-quality digital camera systems, in the wild, and under natural lighting conditions.  Mr. Kelch adheres to National Wildlife Foundation ethical guidelines, which encourage minimal impact to wildlife and its habitat and no digital image manipulation beyond that which can be accomplished in a conventional photographic darkroom.   All photographs are matted, conservation-quality Giclee prints made directly from the original high-resolution digital images.  All items are individually produced in his studio with environmentally-friendly digital methods, using papers and inks that will show no significant degradation in 70 to 100 years when properly stored or displayed. Precise colorimetric control of the production process assures consistent, impeccably high quality of all products.
