Hi, I am David Nadalin, a wildlife photographer from the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. I enjoy long walks in nature where I can take on the challenges of bird photography.

Photography has always held an interest for me. I spent my younger years dabbling in various topics but never really finding a niche that held my interest. Eventually I ended up doing family portrait photography for the better part of a decade.

In recent years my focus migrated to wildlife photography. With the recent event of Covid, it turned out to be a good direction as wildlife photography is a somewhat solo endeavor. My favorite subjects are birds as I find them to be a quite challenging subject. I also keep an eye out for wildlife and landscape subjects as well. I approach my wildlife photography from the portrait photographer’s viewpoint, always looking for that special moment with my subjects.

I’ve had a camera in my hands for almost four decades and love how far the technology has come. I still shoot with my camera in manual exposure mode but do take full advantage of the current focusing technologies when I can.

I’m currently using a Canon EOS R5 mirrorless camera with a 45 Megapixel Full-frame sensor. I usually have it paired with the Canon RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM zoom lens as my primary lens.
