Dave Brewer is a Salt Lake City native with a BFA in Photography from the University of Utah. He does not like to pigeonhole himself as a specific type of photographer as he claims that “there are far too many interesting things going on in the world to just shoot one subject matter”. Dave aspires to blur the lines between commercial, editorial, and fine art photography by applying his Fine Art education background to commercial projects.
Dave has pursued many personal photojournalism projects including documenting Mexican culture traveling South of the border since 2004, as well as an ongoing project photographing Gay Pride in a seemingly conservative State.
In attempts to unite the local photo community and provide opportunities for other artists, Dave recently opened up the SLC Photo Collective: A community collaborative workspace for photographers. The SLC Photo Collective is a 3,500 square foot fully equipped photo studio and event space located at 561 West 200 South. Dave is excited to bring the community together by providing classes, workshops, and gallery exhibitions each month as the newest addition to the Salt Lake City Gallery Stroll.
