David Charbit's Stylish Sea Photography: David Charbit

David Charbit is half-French and has lived in the UK since the age of 5. Two years ago, he left his job as an economics and business teacher to pursue his love of photography.

Fed up of being stuck working in the city, he was photographing his other big passion in life which is surfing when he was approached by a magazine for use of the images. This encouraged him to pick up the lens for a living and took to commercial and editorial freelancing. Recently he has decided to specialise in a more niche market  - the sea and all things associated with it.

David has always been a Nikon user and currently has the D810 and D750. "I have three lenses bought secondhand – the 300mm f/2.8, the 105mm Micro and the 16-35mm, which I just use now for interiors – and a 85mm f/1.4 which I bought new. It's a lovely lens, one of my favourites. It's a great focal length for food, really sharp and great for travelling with as it's so compact. My two favourite lenses I've also had new from the start: the 24-70mm f/2.8 and the 70-200mm f/2.8. I can use the 70-200mm in so many situations, it's amazingly versatile. And I just love the 24-70mm, even though it's quite heavy." Says David.

David also has lots of praises to sing about the D810. "I love doing landscape work, so the high resolution is important for that. And low light-wise it's great – I can shoot in poor light at a higher ISO and not have to worry about noise, so I don't always have to carry around a tripod. I love the level of weather-proofing that the D810 has, too."
