Chapman started doing photography as well as storm chasing at the age of 16. He is self-taught in the art of photography and has been pursuing his career professionally since the age of eighteen. He learned at a very young age from his father to appreciate his environment in the surrounding countryside. He enjoys taking photographs of weather phenomena, especially lightning, as well as scenery and nature. David likes to seek out unusual examples of nature such as superior mirages, albino birds, ice caves and various types of naturally created vortexes, ranging in size from dust devils to tornadoes. To date he has found many multi-petalled Ontario trilliums, the highest of which had 33 petals. David is also a professional speaker and enjoys entertaining and educating a great crowd. His main areas of expertise are Weather/Aurora Borealis, Local Interests and Scenery of Ontario, Birds and Wildlife. In the course of his work, David has studied meteorology, ornithology and the Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, which can even be seen in all of southern Ontario if the conditions are right. David likes to keep an open-mind about his subjects. He also insists that all his photographs are true originals and not fabricated in any way. He produces his own prints and does his own framing in order to maximize quality, using acid-free and archival quality materials in all of his products. He offers his work printed on canvas as well as other fine art papers. Canvas offers the advantage of presentation without the need for glass. The Giclee Canvas process includes a protective coating to reduce the damaging effects of scratches and UV light.
