David... It's not often that I open a portfolio and find 111 (your posted total to date) fabulous images. Extraordinary skill and vision is evident in each capture... I look forward to many more postings from you... Mike

David Wisse , May 14, 2009; 08:36 P.M.

Thank you very much Mike - that means a lot to me. I've visited your gallery as well, and enjoy your work equally. Where are you from?

Karen F , May 16, 2009; 05:21 A.M.

Hi David. You have some lovely landscapes and dog images. You use a fairly strong vignette in your dog images David, I am interested in whether that is because you like the look or experimenting. I thought you might be interested in an aussie dog photographer that i like very much. www.mongrel.com.au. Do you have any favourites? I am a sucker for great dog photography. cheers, karen

David Wisse , May 16, 2009; 06:36 A.M.

Thanks Karen. I do experiment with vignetting sometimes, thinking it helps to focus attention on the main subject. If the image edges seem too bright or featureless, I might try it as well. I have to be careful though, as I tend to overdo things a bit!

Thanks for the link to David Darcy - he has some heartbreaking stories to tell with his photos.

Best, David

Diana D. , May 21, 2009; 09:03 P.M.

You are a true master of landscape photography! I really enjoyed browsing through your portfolio.

David Wisse , May 27, 2009; 05:45 P.M.

Thank you Diana for your kind words.

Best, David

Terrific Portfolio!

David, I really enjoyed looking through your portfolio here on www.photo.net. You have some excellent images posted here! Thanks for sharing then with us. -Jim

David Wisse , June 09, 2009; 05:08 P.M.

Thank you Jim. Your "Copse of Deadwood" continues to inspire me.

Best wishes, David

mac gallier , June 12, 2009; 01:40 A.M.

Wow! Everyone else stole all my adjectives. Great work.

David Wisse , June 13, 2009; 09:37 P.M.

Thanks for your kind words Jim and Mac - I've enjoyed your work as well.

Liz Weisiger , June 18, 2009; 07:10 P.M.

Every once and awhile, I "happen" to come across a member who knocks me out, like you have. I love your work, and I would happily comment on every picture if I had time. I will follow your work. Your dogs are wonderful.

ML M , June 28, 2009; 12:18 P.M.

David.... Came back by to check on the dogs and find you asked a question of me. The hazards of the comment section is that there's no notice back to the writer. I'm from Alabama and live in Montgomery. I continually enjoy your postings and look forward to many more... Mike

Steven Richardson , July 08, 2009; 12:21 P.M.

David,, I'm really glad I found your portfolio. You have a collection of some really great images. In fact I had to add one to my favorites. Looking forward to seeing more from you.

Trisha Jean-Angela , July 17, 2009; 08:03 P.M.

I know I have made comments on your individual photos and you on mine, but I just wanted to make one here in your gallery and tell you how much I enjoy your work...such beautiful images! Thank you for sharing them! :)

Leslie Nicole , July 23, 2009; 02:01 A.M.


Really nice photos of (your?) GSP. Not only gorgeous photos, but really nice portraits.

John Wilder , August 19, 2009; 04:32 P.M.

A Different Dog


I remember a different dog, a beagle named Smokie. Ran accross your site and thoroughly enjoyed your work. You always did do a fine job.

LaVida FotoArt , September 24, 2009; 12:28 A.M.

Can't decide which album I like most - landscapes or dogs...
Both are equally a pleasure to see, both touch soul.
Wonderful work.

Patsy Dunn , October 10, 2009; 02:24 P.M.

David, I enjoy yur work, you have a great eye for composition & color. I love your dog shots, you have some very well trained, beautiful dogs. I also like your landscape shot as well. I live in Tennessee, I am a country girl and I guess that shows. Keep on shooting and sharing so maybe I can learn something, from a gifted photographer. Regards, Patsy

Linda Davidson , October 15, 2009; 02:14 P.M.


Your portfolio is impressive. I love your work. Your dog shots are wonderful. I will be back.

Best wishes,


Hassan Ajmi , October 22, 2009; 05:17 P.M.

You have a wonderful collection of photos. It is a pleasure to view them.

Denise L , October 25, 2009; 06:09 P.M.


David, I need to say more than it was a pleasure to see your work. I'm very impressed with your great eye,talent, and sense of composition. All your work is to admire but I especially like your dog and barn images. Cheers,Denise

Goran Anastasovski , October 31, 2009; 01:51 P.M.

Excellent portfolio. Bravo David

Edward Woods , November 01, 2009; 07:13 A.M.

Like the dogs.

David, anyone who loves their dogs is OK by me:) Your portfolio is very nice. Your images have a real sense of place. Good success and good hunting. Andy

Carl Wakefield , November 02, 2009; 07:36 A.M.

David compliments on the super photography, the dogs are really just great you have mastered them. Top stuff. Regards

Denise L , November 05, 2009; 06:46 P.M.


Hi David, I had to check out your Imagepro site. Your photos are so amazing. I don't dare show it to my husband. He wants a dog like the ones you photograph. I'm afraid that if the choice was me or a dog, he'd pick the dog. You really capture their stoicism, loyalty,warmth, and trust. Cheers. Denise

Shahriyar Miri , November 08, 2009; 08:35 A.M.

Hi David,

Thank you for your nice comment on my Rex, I 'm only 14 years old and started to take pictures 2 years ago. This is my first picture which I have uploaded in P.N and I will continue to add some more photos and get comments from all photographers around the world and I know that I have to learn a lot . My father is a photographer and he teaches me many things and this is very good for me . He convinced me to be in P.N community and I think this very cool and interesting. Once again thanks for your attention and take care.

Jim Adams , November 09, 2009; 09:15 A.M.


I've spent the better part of my morning looking at your work, and the time has flown by.

I am in complete and total awe of your dog photographs. I wish I could comment on each and every one of them, but I would just end up repeating myself.

I'll put it as simply as I know how...you are a master of the genre.

David Wisse , November 09, 2009; 06:31 P.M.

Thank you all for taking the time to visit - and for leaving such positive and inspiring comments. As you can no doubt tell - dogs are a huge part of my life, and the impetus for most of my photography. I have to keep telling myself that there are other worthy subjects!

Best wishes to you all - David

Luis Triguez , November 14, 2009; 10:40 A.M.

David, I’m impressed by your good work. Your compositions are top-notch. Just great! Excellent!

Shahriyar Miri , November 16, 2009; 01:42 A.M.

Dear David,

Thank you so much for your encouraging words and I really appreciate your advises. I know that I have to learn a lot and this is just the beginning.

With the best wishes Shahriyar

Pnina Evental , November 23, 2009; 01:08 P.M.


Discvovered your name at Jeff Long photo, that you have commented on .I came to look and found a beautiful series of photographes. I liked many and instead of commenting one or two of them, I comment on your entire work. I will come again! ( I'm a dog lover, love your dogs series)

Tim Zeipekis , November 26, 2009; 07:04 P.M.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday!

David Wisse , November 28, 2009; 08:02 P.M.

Thanks Tim - Hope you did as well. All the dogs and their master were well fed :)!

The greatest gift I have ever given myself is my membership to Photo.net. Not only am I learning more about photography (and hopefully becoming a better photographer), but it has allowed me to meet such a wonderful community of people. To all my friends who have helped me, consoled me, praised or criticized me, and above all inspired me……I offer thanks to all of you for playing such an important role in my life and therefore my happiness. I send you all warm greetings for a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year! I look forward to many more interactions with you in 2010.

Tim Zeipekis , December 24, 2009; 03:01 P.M.

david, your work here is just beautiful.  winterset and dog beach are my favorites- truly fine art.  regards, mmwhite.

John Galyon , April 22, 2010; 09:43 P.M.

David,  I saw your name when you commented on someone's photograph, and although it was familiar...I just couldn't recall if we've spoken before of not.  So, please forgive me if we have!  I'll attribute/blame my poor memory on getting old! ;)  But regardless...I took a leisurely stroll through your portfolio and was simply mesmirized. I've seldom seen a body of work of such high quality...throughout.   I'm not jealous...but I'm certainly envious and don't mind admitting it! When I have more time I'll be back to comment on individual photos and just enjoy them.



David Wisse , May 06, 2010; 07:49 P.M.

Thanks Michelle and John for your kind remarks - and sorry for my belated response!

Best wishes to you both, David
