Below is a collection of my drawings, paintings & prints from over the years. All of the pieces were done when I was in college except for the flag & guitar. I have mainly been working on my photography portfolio for the last 8 years but now I think I'm ready to draw & paint again.
We hope you enjoy the Real photography of
My mom, Mary Lord (left) has enjoyed video and still Photography since her high school days and was my influence to start shooting.
When I was in high school, I got my 1st SLR Camera and learned to develop my own negatives and prints in the darkroom. It was just 10 years ago I put down that same film camera & started shooting with a Digital SLR Camera.
Hi, my name is Dave Lord.
Thank you for visiting Lord's Creations Photos.
When I was a kid I loved to draw & paint.
I refused to trace pictures, I had to draw them freehand.
In college I decided to study art & got my B.A. in Fine Art.
I also grew up around cameras with a lot of pictures always being taken of vacations, events & family gatherings.

This is a Mural commissioned by Hamilton Sundstrand Industries in 2003.
They make parts for Aircraft and Astronauts & wanted a patriotic, local scene in their factory production area.
The mural is 10' from the floor, 10' high and 21' long. Painted in acrylic paints, each color had to be individually mixed on the floor 1st. I had to paint the mural from a 24' extension ladder, wearing a hardhat and safety goggles.
