J. David Bohl is one of the top location photographers in New England. As staff photographer for the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities from 1976-1999, David has photographed hundreds of historic buildings and their decorative arts collections, creating images of the highest quality for use in many widely respected museum publications. Since going freelance in 2000, he has expanded his client base to include book and magazine publishers, architects, real estate firms, dealers, collectors and conservators.

David's technique with large format cameras and black and white film has earned him a reputation as an expert in the art of photo-documentation of historic buildings. He offers complete documentation services in accordance with HABS and HAER standards, including archival processing for film and prints. His work has the technical excellence to satisfy the most demanding architectural clients and the experience to work carefully in the sensitive museum environment.

Equally at home with the smaller format cameras and color film, David's eye for light and form consistently captures the essence of his subject. It is the striking clarity and depth of his photography that makes it accessible and visually satisfying to a broader audience. His color work has been featured in many catalogues and publications aimed at the high end mass market.
