About the Artist

Hello, my name is David Guidas. I live in Pennsylvania, USA and am an avid photographer and guitar player.  I like to shoot fine art type photography and am constantly experimenting with various procedures and equipment. I don’t limit myself to one style or subject. My focus may be on abstract one day and nature or architecture the next. I have only recently started to get my photography out there and have been published as well as shown in galleries.

My work can currently be found on the Pentax Photo Gallery as well as RedBubble and Flickr.

As for guitar, I play mostly blues but dabble in jazz, rock, acoustic, or anything else. I enjoy it all as far as guitar music goes. Like most guitarists, I like gear but I’m not obsessed with it. Whatever works for the job is fine with me. I am inspired by all of the personality and tonal options that various guitars bring. As with my photography, my music had also taken a back seat while I toiled away at my normal “day” job. I have jammed and collaborated with a few talented musicians in the past and I’m looking forward to doing that again.

I currently have videos on YouTube showcasing various guitars.

  1. I think your photographs are beautiful and inspirational. I am new to blogging and I’m just researching blogs to find what a great blog should look like and also just to get a little inspiration. So, thank you for both!

  2. David,
    You’d be surprised if you take 1 square inch of anything on Earth and focus on it you will definitely find beauty. That the secret of Nature. It’s a fractal of beauty, the right place to live and care. Your photos prove my theory!
    Good work!

  3. Your blog never fails to intrigue me. Your pictures are making me view things in a whole new perspective. Thank you for your pictures^.^ Hope you go far..:)

    • Thank you so much. I really enjoy it when my photos connect with people. It means a lot to me, considering how I try to have a different vision then the norm. I apologize that my output has been a little slow lately. I’ve been dealing with orientation on a new job and it’s been consuming my days and restricting my exploring but I’ll, hopefully, get back in a shooting routine soon.

  4. Hello David,

    I too am drawn to the quiet serenity of cemeteries. You have captured the essence of these holy place that remind us of the shortness of life and the beauty of nature.

    Thanks,

    Jack
