Welcome to my home page. Please take a few minutes and let me share some of my work with you. I am especially passionate about the unique places I visit and photograph.

During August of 2012, I was honored to have an exhibit of my infrared photography. You can see the images in the gallery, "In A Different Light." In 2011, I visited New Zealand and Australia, where I enjoyed endless beautiful scenery. I continue to add images from this visit to a gallery I call "Down Under Water Views," so be sure to check it out. I was also able to hike across Ireland in September and October of 2009, from the Irish Sea to the Atlantic coast. My objective was to capture Ireland "in a different light" using infrared photography.

I was also honored to have an exhibit in 2011 of my photography connected with the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Many of these photos from the exhibit are featured in the gallery, "Towering Views: Remembering the World Trade Center Ten Years After 9/11."

I will be adding more galleries to my portfolio, so be sure to visit again. You are welcome to add comments to any of the galleries if you wish. Thanks and enjoy!

David Batley has been capturing images for over forty years, starting with a simple Kodak rangefinder camera loaned from his grandmother when he traveled to Southeast Asia with the Army in the late 60's. Through the years, David has been passionate about his photography and has enjoyed the experiences of both film (35mm and medium format) and digital. He works as a versatile freelancer with the objective of providing a unique look at many types of subject matter, whether it be event oriented, documentary, or fine art.

David's favorite subjects are those which lean towards a dramatic perspective, especially those that can be made more interesting with infrared photography.

Besides his freelancing, David teaches photography, with an emphasis on digital. He is currently teaching at The Peachtree School of Photography, located in Marietta, Georgia and The Art Place and the Art Station at Big Shanty, both in Cobb County, and the Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell, Georgia.
