David Morris was born in East Yorkshire in 1948. He studied Graphic Design at Hull College of Art, graduating in 1972 and went on to work in top London Advertising Agencies before embarking on a career in teaching Graphic Design and Advertising. He is now a visiting lecturer to the top advertising schools in England, Milan and Amsterdam's.

David is a committed black and white photographer of landscapes and people, using 'wet darkroom' processes who is now engaged in exploring the world of digital image making, and experimenting with ways of combining the two disciplines.

Current projects include recording old and

ancient trades, crafts, and occupations in the Cotswolds before they disappear forever. Cityscapes of Milan, Amsterdam and Venice, The fishing community of Cabo Finisterre in Northern Spain, and a protracted study of 'Drinkers' - their bars, habits and nightlife.

David now lives in Cromer, Norfolk where he is engaged on a series of land and seascapes - and of course some studies of Norfolk drinking haunts.

He has just completed a series of black and white portraits of the Cromer fishermen for the book "The Last Hunters", published in 2012.
