David Meaux is an international landscape, nature, still life and architecture photographer based in southern France. Having the goal of expanding his photography business to France and Europe and being an American with French heritage, he decided to relocate to the Hérault department in Occitanie in 2017 with his wife, who is originally from France, and his two children. Throughout the years, he has had the opportunity to work with architects, project managers, contractors, designers, wineries, distilleries and restaurants. This wealth of experience has helped diversify his portfolio, perfect his skills and refine his artistic expression. He recently opened his own fine art gallery in Saint-Pons-de-Mauchiens, which features photographs from Occitanie and beyond.
He holds an Associate of Applied Science degree in Photographic Technology from Randolph Community College in Ashboro, North Carolina, USA. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communication with specializations in Photojournalism and Multimedia Design and a Master of Arts in Geography with specializations in Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (G.I.S.), both from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. David leverages this foundation to deliver master-crafted images that capture the essence of places and spaces while meeting the technical demands of architectural and landscape photography.
David photographs with an Arca-Swiss technical camera, a Phase One IQ3 100MP digital back, and a wide range of the best Rodenstock HR (High Resolution) digital lenses available on the market. This combination of body, back, and lenses provides finely tuned in-camera perspective control, minimized optical distortion, a richness in texture and tonality only available from 16-bit color, and unequaled dynamic range. His equipment enables him to create exceptionally unparallel high resolution photographic fine art images of tremendous clarity and sharpness.
Ever since a young age, photography has always been his passion, as much for its artistic side as well as its technical side. Photography offers him a way to express his artistic vision of the world and the beauty that surrounds us as well as prolonging short-lived extraordinary moments in time. His photographic style is minimalistic centered on geometry, color, light and texture and placing emphasis on the spirit of a place or an object. His work is characterized by his ability to balance technical expertise with personal attention to quality and details. He is available for work in France, Europe, the Washington, D.C. area and worldwide.
