David Zimmerman, photographer
David Zimmerman is an amazing photographer. He has won numerous awards, including the 2009 L’iris D’Or, for his work in White Sands. He built a solar powered studio in Taos, NM that gets all its water from rain… in the desert! He is a pilot and built a plane from a kit. He has lived in all four continental US time zones. He is passionate about his personal projects, and on the strength of his photographs, able to get visibility and attention for places that need all the attention they can get. He is basically what I think all photographers want to be.
