David S Hayden, dba Pueblo West Photography, resides in Pueblo West, CO and developed an interest in photography in 1965 when his brother handed him a Lordox, fully manual 35mm camera. His passion for photography really kicked into high gear with the invention of the digital photography which he has done exclusively for over 15 years.
For Dave photography, literally “drawing with light, is as much or more about the light than it is about any particular subject matter. As a result his interests range from landscape to still life and product photography. For the past few years he has photographed numerous events ranging from outdoor events for the Southern Colorado Horseman’s Society and the Pueblo Zoo to “black tie” events for the Red Cross, Pueblo City County Library District and the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center.
To date, 25+ of his local interest photographs have appeared on the cover of The Pueblo West View. His prize winning photographs have been on display and Steel City Artworks, The Pueblo Art Guild, throughout the Pueblo City County Library District, The Idea Place in downtown Rocky Ford, Gallery 313 In La Junta CO, Trinidad CO and his digital and printed images have been exhibited in 21 international galleries including the 5th Base Gallery, London, ORMS Cape Town School of Photography, Cape Town, and New Moment Gallery, Belgrade, Serbia, BBA Circle, Berlin, Germany, Photosynthesis Gallery, Sofia, Bulgaria and many more..
Occasionally, Dave teaches photography classes through the Pueblo City County Library District and / or more personal training by appointment.
