Dave, the staff photographer and web content manager for Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Mt, has two passions– one for the outdoors and one for photography. To this end he spends much of his time in the ecosystems in and around Yellowstone National Park, taking least one trip to Yellowstone a month. This gives him a perspective on the wildlife and ecosystem that few have. The results of his extensive time in field can be seen on online galleries loaded with images of North American wildlife and landscapes.
David Barnes grew up hearing stories of Yellowstone from his father who was a bellhop at Old Faithful Inn during the 1950s.

He likes exploring the natural wonders of Montana and meeting the unique people who live in this state. David runs a small retail store in West Yellowstone.
