My name is David Talley, And I’m a conceptual fine art photographer. My work as an artist aims to create entirely new worlds with impossible concepts.

I want to show the emotion that every person on the planet experiences, but in a different, relatable light. Often, I’m asked where I come up with my ideas. I tend to pull inspiration for my concepts from situations in my own life, in all it’s aspects, and display those emotions for others to see.

I want to inspire others to create, and I want to show people that they’re not alone in the struggles they might be going through.

My biggest photographic inspirations include the work of Brooke Shaden, Alex Stoddard, Karrah Kobus, Lissy Elle, Rob Woodcox, Joel Robison, and Tim Walker. I remember coming across Alex’s 365 project late one evening in March of 2011, and it was right then and there that I decided to start my 365 self-portrait challenge. My photo was uploaded within an hour of viewing his work, and I haven’t looked back since.

Seeing stories come to life as I develop, plan, stage, and shoot a concept is the most magical thing in the world. Something about creating a story which can invoke imagination and inspiration in others is what does it for me, and seeing all of the artists I mentioned previously do just that is what got me hooked.

Romantic themes, self-clones, and creatures are all a huge part of my work.

Currently, I’m finishing up my 365 self-portrait challenge. I’ll be shooting day 333 this afternoon, and aim to finish the project sometime in mid-may. After the project, I plan to take a few weeks off to enjoy the freedom of not having a daily deadline, and then I’ll be back to taking photos regularly, planning out large-scale photo shoots without the need to upload a new piece each and every day. I’ll also be traveling to Indiana this summer to host a flickr/ photography meet up of sorts with conceptual photographers from all around the country and world. Stay tuned for the rest of my 365! [Official Website]
