"David Gray was born and raised in North Carolina and trained at The Penland School and at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. David moved to Canada in 1980 to pursue a career in commercial photography as an on-set still photographer for film and television. Throughout 40 years in photography, his fine art projects have remained his first love as he continues to refine his vision and exhibit occasionally in Los Angeles and Vancouver.
