Dave Harrison has lived at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Carson City, Nevada, for over thirty years. While residing just a stone’s throw from Lake Tahoe, Dave continues to explore the Eastern Sierra and the Great Basin for opportunities to practice his passion; landscape photography. He is drawn to the ruggedness of the Sierra as well as the wide open spaces of Nevada. The snow capped peaks, the majestic canyons, the roiling streams and the sage covered deserts are a never ending source of inspiration.

Dave first began taking photographs with a Brownie Instamatic camera that his parents had given him for Christmas when he was just eight years old. He took photo classes in high school and then studied photography at Mt. San Jacinto Junior College and Western Nevada College as well. His career as an interpretive ranger with the National Park and United States Forest Services has allowed him to photograph beautiful landscapes in such diverse places as Alaska, Utah, Lake Tahoe, the Great Basin and Oregon. Dave currently spends his summers as a park ranger at Crater Lake National Park in the Cascade Range and the rest of the year roaming the American West searching for that perfect landscape photograph.

Dave has photographed on four continents. His work has been published in Southern Oregon Magazine, Carson Discoveries Magazine, Nevada Magazine, Crater Lake National Park brochures and visitor guides, and several Eastern Oregon DEX telephone directories.
