I enjoy the challenge of all different genres of photography, from landscapes & small town "street" photography to portraits, even real estate & product/still life photography.

I'm constantly chasing shadows & light in my quest to create interesting visual artwork with a bit of a story telling twist. 



Growing up in Northern Minnesota instilled a passion for the outdoors from an early age. Be it hunting, fishing, or just getting out to explore, my source of inner peace comes from my family and being in the woods. 

Of course I also love all sorts of geeky things, from comics and movies to tech, gear and gadgets! I love being able to test and review all sorts of outdoor and geeky gear!


Each week I co-host a tech & geek culture podcast with two great friends. We hang out, chat about all the latest tech and geek culture news while having a lot of fun along the way. 

We're making our website,, a hub for geeks everywhere with great new content multiple times per week!

Thanks for stopping by

Hi there! My name is David Szweduik and I'm a photographer, podcaster, geeky tech fan, field tester, and avid outdoorsman based out of beautiful Northern Minnesota. I really appreciate you stopping by and whether you're here to check out recent articles and reviews on my Journal or just browse some of my more recent work in my galleries I hope you enjoy your visit.  I've been chasing shadows & light with my cameras since 1996, making music since I could walk, and podcasting since 2017. I'm always looking for interesting people to collaborate with on awesome projects so if you have something in mind give me a shout and let's see what we can make together!

50 Shades of….Winter : A color explosion

Winter. It's cold, miserable, and depressing. The days are so short it feels like you blink and you miss them. Isn't that the usual narrative? I'm not going to lie, winter is tough. But also so beautiful. There are these moments where the light is simply special. Light you never see the rest of the year, but while it's there it's amazing.
