I believe in the power of visually expressing the human experience and the raw beauty of nature. Before founding David Wallace Visuals, I worked for 20 years as a staff photographer and video producer at newspapers throughout the country. 15 of those years were at the Arizona Republic where I documented issues ranging from the U.S./ Mexico border to the environment. I covered Pope Francis’ inaugural visit to Mexico, disappearing glaciers in Peru, uranium contamination on the Navajo Nation, two Super Bowls, and directed a feature length documentary on child welfare issues. In 2018, I was one of the primary members of the Arizona Republic reporting team that won a Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting for their coverage of the U.S./ Mexico border. Of the 10 pieces of content submitted for the Pulitzer, three of the entries were videos I filmed and edited. I am an eight time Rocky Mountain Emmy winner and have won numerous other awards in photo and video journalism. I received a BFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology. An avid outdoorsmen, my interests include hiking, canyoneering, trail running, rafting and rock climbing. In 2001, I thru-hiked the entirety of the 2,650-mile long Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. I live in Phoenix with my wife, Laura Segall, also a professional photographer and our three children. I approach every project with heart and compassion, producing content to communicate captivating stories of the people, places, organizations and businesses of Arizona and beyond.
