My name is David Price and I'm a Kiwi (New Zealander) by birth but have spent most of my career in Indonesia. I worked for 25 years for a Christian-based NGO in Papua, the New Guinea part of Indonesia, doing language development, literacy and sustainable development in remote villages. I am currently living in Humboldt County, Northern California.
My wife, Tammy, is originally from Orange County, California and we have three sons ranging from a college (university) senior to a high school junior.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and am working on a Master of Science in Conservation Biology. My interests pretty much all revolve around the natural sciences and include environmentally sustainable development, Conservation Biology, Ecological Restoration, Ecology, native floras, and amphibian systematics, ecology and bioacoustics. My hobbies, other than photography, include scuba diving, traveling, natural history, birdwatching, and reading natural sciences.
Why the name "Laughing Frog?" Frogs are an incredibly diverse group of animals and yet are perhaps more threatened with environmental degradation and other human-related pressures than most other animals. When their environment is healthy, we could say the frogs are happy. And that's the level of health I strive for in my work with sustainability and development. (Frogs are also my favorite creatures!)
I like to create images with original perspectives, and images which I hope will evoke the same emotional and spiritual response that I have when seeing it in real life. Look and see if I've been in any way successful or not. This site is still new (July 2011) so return and watch it expand as I put up more images, especially from Asia.
I make my images available free to approved church and faith organizations, and some non-profit NGOs, when they are to be used for not-for-profit purposes, and when photographer credit is given. Unless otherwise stated in writing, I retain all copyright priviledges associated with the images posted on this site.
