Photographer biography: David Barthel
David Barthel has been photographing the natural world for more than 20 years. His earliest interest in photography began when he bought his first camera (for $10) at the age of eight with money he had received as a gift. Years later, when he was a young adult, a developing passion for the rugged landscape surrounding Minnesota's North Shore of Lake Superior converged with his increasing interest in the art and craft of nature and landscape photography, igniting a creative spark that still drives his pursuits today.
David’s work has received several awards and has been featured in a variety of national and regional magazines and publications, ranging from Minnesota Monthly to Outdoor Photographer. In 2019, David published his first book, North Shore-Duluth: A Photo Tour of Northeastern Minnesota. The book highlights both prominent and less-known attractions worth visiting in the region, along with photographs, fascinating facts, and historical tidbits.
