Dave Jolkovsky’s father was an avid (hobbyist) photographer who passed on his love of photography to Dave at an early age.  Beginning in elementary school, Dave used a Kodak Instamatic 100 to photograph friends, family, and travel.  In high school Dave was the photographer for his high school newspaper.  He won the Mississippi State Science Fair with a project entitled “Experiments in Cooled Color Photography” where he devised a way to use dry ice to cool the emulsions of color film in order to prevent reciprocity failure during time exposure photography.  During his senior year in high school Dave attended the Nikon School, while it was still in its inaugural  year (1972).

In college, Dave worked one summer an a commercial group photographer using a Mamiya RB67 with TriX film and D76 developer. (Ah, the memories of being a wet fingered photographer...).  Another summer Dave was a public relations photographer in Northern New Mexico using a Leica M2 with Ektachrome and the E6 process to develop film.

In dental school, Dave was photo editor and then editor-in-chief of his school’s award winning year book.  After this Dave used photography to make professional and general public presentations and as a way of documenting and planning his clinical cases.  His Nikon FE performed these tasks for many years.  When his kids were born, he became a children’s photographer (no pay though).

When Dave got his first digital camera in 2002, it was as if all the wonder and enjoyment of photography began anew. He has attended the one week Lepp Institute course in digital photography and many other classes.  His favorite digital cameras are the Fujifilm S2, Nikon D70, and the Canon G9.  His favorite lenses are the Nikkor 17-35 mm F2.8 and the Nikkor 70-200 mm F2.8 VR.   His favorite subjects are his daughters, who are reported to be avid photographers.
