David Johnston

Photographer

David Johnston started his journey into photography back in 2004 when he took a film photography course in high school. However, it was in 2010 that he really became obsessed with photography after he got his first DSLR camera. At that point, he decided to put all of his energy into photography to make it his career.

In 2014 he started his first blog and podcast called Photography Roundtable where he met some of his best photography friends and enabled him to teach and run photography workshops at national parks throughout the United States. He now hosts a second podcast called the Landscape Photography Show.

David also helps people improve their nature photography with video content on YouTube, post-processing courses, and video tutorials.
