About David

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. What is your story to tell?

    For the Hopi people, farming & corn in particular, is not just for sustenance but an integral part of their culture & religion. For many Hopi, growing corn in the traditional dry farming method of no irrigation has become more challenging as the Southwest enters its third decade of drought.
