Dave MacVicar is a Canadian fine art photographer who resides in Toronto, Ontario.
Dave discovered his passion for photography in 2012 when he purchased his first camera for the sole purpose of filming an indie music video. With a lifelong interest in studying photography, Dave’s curiosity led him outdoors where he began photographing his surroundings. During this period of learning the technical aspects of photography and experimenting with different styles, Dave found himself drawn to the intimacy of landscape photography.
With landscapes and seascapes as his primary focus, Dave’s fascination with symmetry and minimalism began to impact the evolution of his work. Traditional landscape photographs were gradually replaced by long exposure black and white images that are free of any unnecessary distractions and in many cases, without reference to scale or location. This style of photograph has become a signature part of Dave’s work. In addition to his recognizable landscape and seascape images, Dave has also been focused on abstract architecture photography and most recently, he has been experimenting with street photography. Many of Dave’s images have received international recognition and have garnered awards in several international competitions.
Whether he’s revisiting a familiar location minutes from home or exploring new territories abroad, Dave’s commitment to making great photographs is relentless.
