David S.


Lead Creative Nomad


Asheville, NC
Hometown: Asheville

Organizer since:

February 9, 2014


What attracted you to this MeetUp and what do you hope to get out of it?

I am the founder of the MeetUp! I hope to build a vibrant community of creative, fun-loving folks, while documenting slices of time in Western North Carolina, but through the eyes of many rather than only one (me!). I'm hoping that our activities are not limited to "shooting", and that we can establish exhibition and stock photo opportunities for the members. I also hope to link our efforts to a charity in some way, though I'm not sure how that will work, or who it will be with.

Canon? Nikon? iPhone? Other?

I'm a Nikon guy, but I know Canon gear as well. My main camera is a D800 (but I also shoot with a D750 bods as well). My point-and-shoot is a Canon S-95. I'm also looking at getting a Fuji "mirrorless" set-up for my travel and street photography.

Coffee? Beer? Or, Kombucha?

Yes. Yes. Yes. My favorite cuppa? The Black Widow at the Creperie in Weaverville. Beer? Tough call, but ya gotta love the Iron Rail IPA at the Wedge. Kombucha? Go local! Buchi!

Would you be willing to help lead an event in your locale?

As founder, naturally I will be taking a lead roll in all the MeetUp's activities, particularly in the early days. As my objective is to "document" more than just Asheville, I'm hoping to get some "tour guide" and "idea" assistance in towns that I don't know too well, like Waynesville, Black Mountain, etc.

Do you use Instagram? What is your IG "handle"? (feel free to follow @vagabondvistas -- the MeetUp organizer's handle, or at least one of them!)

No answer yet


I'm a well-traveled creative originally from the Northeast, now living on the outskirts of Weaverville. I'm a professional photographer, artist and instructor. I love what I do, and do what I love! And, I love to share that passion with others.

What David S. is saying about this Meetup Group

A beautiful day for an enjoyable double-header photo walk, taking in nature and a quaint small town in WNC.
