David J. Struthers, Photographer

Dave is a native Californian currently living in Riverside. He began photography as a hobbyist in the 1960's when he was given a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye and went on to pursue a  Bachelor's degree in photography from California State University at Fullerton.  His career in photography began as a photojournalist, receiving numerous professional association awards as a newspaper photographer, writer and editor.


Dave’s work is inspired by the beauty, diversity and intricacy of nature. 
“The best compliment I can receive is when someone is inspired by one of my images to get outdoors and experience the beauty in nature.” 


Struthers has participated in numerous workshops over the years both as an instructor and student and travels throughout the Western United States to capture images. He says his favorite location is the Northern California coast.


Dave's photographs have been shown in juried exhibitions and are included in private collections worldwide. His work is published in the book "Trail Posts, A Literary Exploration of California's State Parks", in the Insider Magazine, on calendars, posters, websites and in foundation annual reports. 


Struther’s photographs are for sale as signed and numbered limited editions of no more than 30 prints of any one image.
