This photo was one of the very first photos I took when I bought my first “real” digital zoom camera (a Canon SX410) in 2016. The feeling I had when I realized the new potential I had for my photography with that camera is one I’ll never forget because it is what really sparked my interest in photographing life and nature in the outdoors around Lake Harding, Lake Martin, and West Point Lake in Georgia and Alabama. I’ve been addicted to photography every since.


MUDPIX.COM will soon release the first issue of it’s MUDPIX MAGAZINE, the nature and street photography journal by Alabama photographer, David Thrift (work on this issue will begin after the first demo issue is completed). If you like country lake scenery, boaters / skiers / jet skiers action shots, street photography, nature photos like flowers and birds, traffic and vehicle photography, then you will enjoy this independent publication. View life captured by David Thrift in MUDPIX MAGAZINE. Available at mudpix.com via Gumroad soon. Follow this site for updates.

Be You. Be different. Embrace acceptance of others. Because if we were all the same, this would be a pretty boring world!

Nothing makes me happier than being outdoors with my camera.

One of the greatest gifts I feel I could give to society is my love of photography. I really love to capture moments that will never happen again. I don’t get to travel like a lot of people do, and to be honest, with the world as crazy as it is, I can’t honestly say I want to travel much. One thing is certain though, I do love taking “day trips” to the lakes nearby (Lake Harding in Alabama, and West Point Lake in Alabama & Georgia). I also love taking nature and “street” photos of people while I’m out there.

MUDPIX Magazine came about from two of my interests. My love of photography, and I always wanted for years to publish my own magazine, or “zine” as it is referred to when someone makes a homemade magazine. In my case a digital pdf magazine. I’ve got thousands of photos I’ve taken that were just taking up space on my hard drives and/or USB drives that were not being enjoyed by anyone, and my photography collection increases weekly each time I take my camera with me. I decided to change things, and start publishing these photos in a magazine that people who love nature and candid street photography could download and enjoy viewing. These are look books, and time shared with viewers of the scenery I see when I’m out enjoying nature, watching the clouds roll by, and “people watching” in my free time. I have been shooting photographs around my favorite lake areas since around 2002, but this magazine features my photography starting in 2016 since I acquired my first “good” camera. These magazines I’m producing are a journal of my photography from each of my outings when I brought my camera along.

MUDPIX is a term I use to refer to my love of outdoor photography because when I’m out around the water it’s not unusual that I may have to walk through some mud to reach a spot where I want to work with my camera.

I hope that you enjoy these photography magazines and my photography.

The latest Day Trip has been posted. See my most recent photography coming up in a future issue of MUDPIX MAGAZINE. Day Trip – Sunday, April 28th, 2019. Go check out the photos. (UPDATE: It’s been awhile since I’ve taken a day trip out to the lakes and posted new photos under that category on the blog. With winter about to come, this may be the last “Day Trip” post I get on site for awhile. I’m planning a “Photo Of The Day” series to start on New Year’s Day 2020 to make up for not posting photos lately.)
