BIO: DAVID J. SIMCHOCK

A native of New Jersey, David has lived and traveled overseas for many years and, since returning to the States in 2002, quickly established himself as a reputable freelance photographer and artist. His images have been published in major publications around the world, and he has exhibited his work in numerous galleries and venues from New York City to Asheville.

David’s efforts have been awarded many prestigious accolades, while his life story and career have been covered in several publications and TV features. David is also an educator, speaker and writer (and aspiring rock star). He enjoys being a stranger in a strange land and taking on new artistic challenges, whether abroad or nearer to his own back yard. He strives to bring a fresh approach to his craft, successfully capturing the mood of the moment, as well as, perhaps, an entire journey.

In 2013, David officially split off his "fine art" services from his freelance photography activities. After a 2+ year stint in the Asheville River Arts District, David now operates his business activities from his home in Weaverville, NC. He is currently represented by the Miya Gallery in Weaverville, NC and the Woolworth Walk Gallery and Kress Emporium Gallery in Downtown Asheville, NC. He is actively seeking additional opportunities to show his work in the region at art shows and in galleries. Please contact him should you have, or know of, and opportunity for him to exhibit his fine artworks.
