About the Photographer

Dubai Cityscape, for Fujifilm Japan

Hi, I'm David Hobby. I've been a photographer in Howard County for the last 30 years. Until 2008 I was a staff photojournalist with The Baltimore Sun. Now I publish Strobist.com and teach week-long photography workshops in cities around the world. Between jobs you'll find me happily shooting for a variety of Howard-based organizations.

Locally, I have developed visual projects with the Howard County Arts Council, the Howard County Economic Development Authority, the Howard County Conservancy and others.

If you have a Howard County-based project that might benefit from photography that strives to be both thoughtful and creative, please do not hesitate to contact me via email or Twitter. Generally speaking, the more potential for interesting photos the less important is your budget. It's a strange model, granted. But that's how I work.

I also serve as the Mid-Atlantic region reference photographer for Zhang Studio, which is located in Xiamen, China. Working in collaboration with the the artists at Zhang Studio, we produce museum-quality oil portraiture.
