Dave McIntire is an Emeritus Professor
at Oregon State University. His primary professional interests are
aquatic ecology and phycology (the study of algae). Over a period of 40
years, Dave's research projects included studies at Crater Lake and
Mount Rainier National Parks, the Columbia River, Oregon estuaries and
farm ponds, and controlled experiments with laboratory streams.
After his retirement from teaching in 1995, Dave expanded his interest
in landscape photography. For the past 20 years, he has photographed
the landscape, mostly in black and white film, but more recently in
color, as digital imaging and printing have provided photographers with
a craft that was unimaginable three decades ago. In his photographs,
Dave tries to reveal meaningful patterns in the complexities of our
natural environment, so the viewer can connect with the image at
different levels of visual resolution.
