About

My name is David Diehm

I am a Newcastle based photographer who is passionate about capturing images that tell a story and connect with my audience. I was first inspired by my late father to pick up a camera in 2012. Finding a natural connection with the camera, I enjoy pushing creative boundaries in pursuit of that perfect image. My interests with the camera started in landscape, seascape and wildlife photography. Later expanding to portraiture under the influence of my own growing family.

Spending time outdoors exploring and discovering nature is important to our young family. It’s how we choose to connect and teach our children about our wonderful planet. In an age of increased technology use, I believe we must “disconnect” to connect… with mother nature. Photography is my way of connecting and expressing that deeper beauty in all things around us. Each image is unique and captures just a short moment in time that can be preserved for people to enjoy, provoke thought or reflect upon for years to come.

“The natural beauty of the Hunter Region provides an abundant playground of opportunity to pursue my love of photography”.

A country boy at heart, I spent my childhood in Griffith, NSW. Tertiary education took me to Sydney, until I discovered Newcastle in 2006. My formal training is as a chiropractor. Passionate about health and helping people live the active lifestyle they desire, we run a well-established family practice in Hamilton South.

I am very proud to call Newcastle home. It’s the perfect place to live, work and play. I find tremendous enjoyment from capturing and sharing images of the Hunter. I regularly share images through my social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram. Our region has so much to offer, a stunning coastline, untouched national parks, the tranquility of Lake Macquarie and the Hunter Valley all on our doorstep.

My wife Kathryn shares a mutual passion for photography. She has a keen eye for wildlife and portraiture photography. In our years before kids we dedicated a lot of time to photographing wildlife, especially birds. Some of our Powerful Owl images are featured on Birdlife Australia.

The collection of images you will find in my portfolio have taken years of dedication but facilitated so much enjoyment during their creation. I hope my images can create a connection, inspire or move you in some way.

Welcome to my journey depicted in images, enjoy.
