David Middleton is a nationally recognized professional nature photographer, writer and naturalist. His philosophy is to photograph whatever he finds attractive and then think about trying to sell it. This has led him to photograph subjects and places as disparate as harbors, wildflower meadows, large mammals, small birds, forests, quaint villages, indigenous markets and people and mountain streams. David has produced 10 books including: Ancient Forests, The New Key to Ecuador and the Galapagos, Prayers through the Seasons, American Vision, The Nature of America, the largest nature photography book project ever undertaken, which he created, co-directed, contributed photographs to and wrote. His new books are The Nature of Vermont and The Photographer’s Guide to Vermont, The Photographer’s Guide to the Maine Coast and The Photographer’s Guide to the Oregon Coast all published by The Countryman Press a division of W.W. Norton.
